Oriental scene



Good morning Peeps, a few weeks ago I mentioned I had been invited to join the Chocolate Baroque  team and today I am so excited to share my first creation with you which you will also find on the Design Team Blog.

I confess to staying right in my comfort zone with my first creation for them opting for Pan Pastles and a nice big masked sun. The stamps are all from the Oriental Crane stamp set.

I started with a piece of single sided pearl cardstock and used the reverse matt side to stamp both the tree and temple stamp twice using an Adirondack Black inkpad, masking off the bottom ground line before stamping.

Next I created the hills using a piece of torn paper and Pan Pastels Phthalo Green, then placed a large circle mask centrally slightly overlapping the hills and created the sky, again using a piece of torn paper to represent clouds and Pan Pastels Magenta Shade. After removing the mask I used a little Pan Pastels Diarylide Yellow to shade the sun and clouds.

I then masked the crane and upper section of the crane stamp and inked just the bulrushes and stamped across the bottom of the scene. Using the smaller of the cherry blossom stamps I stamped several times across the top of the scene and added a little shading and colour to the trees and temples with pencils.


Using coordinating cardstock I matted and layered the scene onto a white base card and finally added some liquid pearls to the blossoms.

Thank you so much for popping in today, your visits are always much appreciated.
