Oriental Favorites - Marks Finest Papers Oriental Sketch Challenge Blog Hop - Day 1


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
Birds of the Orient

I'm so glad you are joining us for Day 1 of our Oriental Sketch Challenge Blog Hop.  I have picked a favorite set to share with you, the set is called Oriental Joy.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers.  I stamped just a couple of butterflies, colored them with Copic markers, cut them out and mounted them in the center.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Bearded Iris stamp set and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I used the Cherry Blossom die set from Spellbinders to add to the sides, I think it goes well with the set.

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
