When the sketch challenge arrived in my inbox from MFT I decided to participate. Without any clear picture in my head except the sketch I began by cutting the pp into the oval shape. Then I had to think because as yet, I don’t have many stamp sets from MFT. I went through my stamp lists to see what I could use and pulled out this retired set called Sushi Date for which I also have matching dies. I’ve had it for a while and have enjoyed using it. Initially I was drawn to the sentiment because it kind of expressed my feeling about making the card. That is how it got created, I just rolled along. I backed the white panel with some blue that is a close match to the blue in the pp and added it to the card front. Then I stamped the sentiment in Blueprint sketch, cut it into two pieces and adhered them to another of the blue paper pieces. I decided to place it underneath the oval. I stamped and die cut the bamboo and played around with placement before gluing. At first I thought I would keep to only the one image, but then decided to stamp the critter image. Coloured that with pencils added a bit of Nuvo Crystal glaze to the eyes and ears and called it finished.
