I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again (and again no doubt!) I love all things oriental. So when I walked into the craft shop today and saw the new Papermania Oriental Treasure paper pack, I had to have it – and some stamps too! This is the first card I’ve made since my injury and it took me ages but thankfully, I’m on the mend and my craft table hasn’t wandered off in disgust at my neglect hehe.
I have used a 5×5 card blank and covered it with the pretty textured DCWV Eastern Promise paper, inking up the edges with a petrol coloured promarker. The magnolia image is Chinese Tilda and I’ve coloured her in with promarkers and used a versamark embossing pen to add the Papermania Enchanted Gold embossing powder to the parasol and parts of Tilda’s kimono and sandals.
The cherry blossom on the kimono is coloured with sakura souffle pens and stickles. I used more of the same embossing powder onto the turquoise paper in the Oriental Treasure paper pack and stamped the lanterns which are by Inkadinkado ( Asian Characters stamp pack) and the flower at the bottom is made up of 3 layers of embossed vellum, stamped with an Oriental treasures stamp and I’ve added stickles over the brad in the centre of the flower. More stickles at the stop of the card and that’s it!
