Bird on a Branch Oriental Style


Good Morning Everyone,

The weeks seem to be flying by. I just can’t believe it!!!

It’s time for another Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411. I hope you’ll find some time for yourself to stamp a little. Even if it’s 10 minutes. It’s a great stress reliever.

Here is this weeks sketch…..

…and here is my interpretation. I am so pleased with the simple elegance of this card. I love the colors together. It’s So Saffron and Basic black. Of course the image piece is white.

The featured stamp set is Bird on a Branch (one of my favorites) and I paired it with Garden Dreams. I thought the symbol gave the card a bit of an oriental twist. What do you think?

Sketch 130

The Dimensions are:

So Saffron: 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” (used a Texturz Plate on that)

Basic Black 3 x 3 1/2” Is run through my Big Shot with an embossing folder.

White: 1 3/4” x 3 5/8”

I used a scrap of white for the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed my little mix today and hope you’ll come back soon.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!
