Oriental Favorites - Marks Finest Papers Oriental Sketch Challenge February Blog Hop - Final Day


Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers Stamp Shop
February Blog Hop

We're doing something different to start out the new year.  We're looking back at all the wonderful sets released in 2014.  For the next 4 days the Oriental Sketch Challenge Design Team will show you their "Favorite Oriental" sets of 2014.  Please visit each blog and leave a comment.  One person will be chosen to receive this Oriental Stamp Set.
Birds of the Orient

For our final day of the Oriental Sketch Challenge February Blog Hop I've chosen to use the Birds of the Orient and Works of Art stamps sets.  I stamped the background from the Works of Art stamp set in Jet Black Archival Ink and sponged it with Broken China, Salty Ocean, Victorian Velvet and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks.  Spellbinders Petite Small Oval die was used to cut the sentiment.  As an added touch I edged both the sentiment and card front with a Silver Leafing Pen.  I think this would make a great masculine card. 

Please hop along with us!  You have a chance to win the Birds of the Orient set!  Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one), each day for more chances to win!  (You do NOT have to comment on all the blogs each day!  The names are drawn randomly!)  The winner will be announced on Feb. 28, 2015 on the MFP Stamp Shop blog.  You can go back and comment if you missed a day.  (HINT: The more you comment, the more chances you have to win and comments on the MFP blog count twice!)
The deadline for commenting is 10 PM on Friday Feb. 27, 2015
