A touch Oriental



I was thrilled when Susan chose here theme of Oriental at Allsorts as I have so many stamps from when it was really popular a few years back and have been secretly hoping it will make a comeback. This weeks sponsors are FlonzCraft and QKR Stampede.

I have no idea of the make of stamp here, it's a really old wood mounted one which hubby bought me many years ago and has no identity on it at all. I used my Wink of Stella pens to colour the image and Pan Pasels in the background, decoupaged her fan, used some of the new Graphic 45 Botanical Tea DP's and some cherry blossoms.

Happy weekend all.

  17. Very striking indeed with your lace accents echoing the pattern on her dress beautifully . The patterned paper gives a lovely lily pond effect adding to the oriental feel of the whole. I particularly like the way her head & the fan project outside the circular mats.
    Much love from me

  19. Oh, how pretty! Love the easel card and the gorgeous image - even the flowers look Oriental - nicely done! Like you, Brenda, I have lot of the Oriental/Asian themed stamps that have been neglected for a long time and I think this is a fabulous theme for your challenge! I will be looking through my Asian stamps to play along.

    I've been praying for your return to health and will continue to do so. I hope you have a nice weekend.
