Here's the Oriental Sketch Design Team:

Today we are doing a Block it Off Technique
Tutorial can be found HERE

Try out the tutorial.  Post your card on Speedy TV.


Come on back tomorrow for more Oriental Favorites!!

This is a very interesting technique  the image from stamp set MFP 'LUCKY YOU "
is stamped on card stock and  a rectangle is cut around it leaving a portion to be cut in shape ( head)
Then adhered on the background and squiggled around the whole   maybe that makes some sense but you can find it in tutorials  "Center Block"

                                   Hop alone with us to leave comments on the DT cards
