Sketch by Regena

I Find that sketches like this are a challenge for me...where I have to line up the paper so they are all even.   I  almost managed this time.. I used a ruler on the bottom to line this up,; it seemed to help me.  The other way to even it out is to just tape them onto a piece of paper and then trim.

I started the Map by  stamping the Lily bowl stamp using black ink, then coloring with Copic marker. I then trimmed it to a square.

Then I cut the red paper to work as a layer behind it.  Then I took my strips of brown, cream, and designer paper and layered it on the red paper.  With the background completed, I started assembling the card.  I did the brown strip as a wrap around then added the small square. On the small square I used a brass charm out of my stash.. .you know, that stash that is so old that you do not know where the item came from..

As always when I do a map I learn new things, and remember some old ideas to make it easier the next time.  I hope you take the time to try this sketch.

Thanks

Debbie
