LOVE the sketch over at Splitcoaststampers today, so just had to play along!

Asian Gardens is a new (to me) set from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.  I was excited to get some ink on it!

The tree trunk was stamped with black ink which didn’t “pop” the way I wanted.  So I took a Copic Marker (100-Black) and colored it in.  That did the trick!  The accent cardstock on either side of the coin was made using the smallest oval punch from SU.  The ends were trimmed off and tucked under the coin.

Since the card base was black the inside needed a lighter panel for writing.  So it got a little stamping as well.

Thanks for stopping in today.  Happy Crafting!
