Oriental inspiration at The Stamp Man

This fortnight over at The Stamp Man we want to see your Oriental creations.

The image is from Non Sequitur and is coloured with Promarkers. I went for a soft colour palette, for a pretty look.

I had originally made a traditional fold card, but wasn't 100% happy with it, until Jill from the Stamp Man sent me some fabulous backgrounds coloured with Starburst stains. One of them went perfectly with my image colours so I took my card apart and remade it as an easel card.

The background is overstamped with grasses and herons and the little flat button/beads were stamped with a floral stamp from the same Non Sequitur stamp set. The beads and the metal oriental embellishments are from The Stamp Man's oriental card making kit.

So..... what are you waiting for? Dig out those oriental stamps and papers and show us your projects! Click on the link in my sidebar for more details.
