Another card....F

At work there are a group of crafting colleagues that meet once and set a theme for the following meet.I have only been involved once and they decided to choose oriental as the next theme.  Bit of luck really having a complete set of oriental stamps never used before and stacks of oriental coins too lol.    I will probably join in on occasion dependant on time(no one likes to be in their work premises longer than neccessary do they? lol)

Anyway here is my contribution - I used 2 papers from a Basic Grey stack  for the background ( one of my many unused paper pads lol) I stamped and heat embossed cherry blossom on one of them . I stamped an oriental lady, coloured her using my copics and prismas. I then covered the image using mod podge for a slightly different texture.   I finished it off matting and layering, a few chinese coin embellishments and edged in inka gold.

Voila finito!





Thanks for dropping by and it would be great if you followed me.

Hugz and love
