The Stamp Man - Oriental

It;s time for another challenge over at The Stamp Man, and this time we would like to see you going Oriental ! The prize is a £10 voucher to spend at The Stamp Man.

For my card I used Non-Sequitor stamps and I stamped with Archival black ink onto card stock that I'd treated to Barn Door and Spiced Marmalade DI. I cut the main image out using Labels 3 Nestabilities and mounted it onto black card.

The background was created in the same way as was the side panel. The tassel is from my stash and I've used some Oriental coins & Charms. This was quite a simple card in the end and another first for me as I've never been attracted to using oriental stamps before, but this worked out quite well ! I'm also going to enter this card into the Daring Card Makers challenge which is something with an Oriental feel to it.

I hope you get chance to join us, you have until 9PM on 10th February.
