A taste of the orient

Hi there, I'm late with todays' card, I seem to have had one of those days, you know the ones where everything takes twice as long as usual, your drop everything you pick up lol. Anyway I wanted to share this card which features a gorgeous image from Scrapbook Stamp Society (you can find her here)


I've coloured the image with promarkers and used fineliner pens for her long flowing hair. I wanted to keep the card fairly simple so I made a bp using starburst stains (using shades of lilac, blue and green but the mica makes them look a bit odd lol). Once the card was dry I stamped assorted foliage stamps using black versafine ink. I've used black card to matt and layer and added some black organza ribbon to finish off. I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity: Clean and simple
Inspire me Fridays: anything goes
Truly Madly Crafty: anything goes

Thanks for calling by today

  8. I really like this card too, I like the background in combination with the beautifull picture, I like the contrast between the full background and the elegant picture (I hope you understand what I mean but my English is not perfect, sorry for that)
