Oriental at Fashionable Stamping


Hi Folks,

Can't believe how quickly the last 2 weeks have gone!  its time again for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.  and this time we are challenging you to go Oriental.I decided to go for an oriental garden look with cherry blossom.  I sponged Bundled sage on the bottom and Tumbled Glass for a sky,  the Script  and Cherry Blossom (Rubber Stampeed)  was stamped in Frayed Burlap Distress Ink so that I could drag the colour with a waterbrush. The blossom was painted with  Worn Lipstick DI. The Symbol was stamped with Frayed Burlap and heat embossed wth clear EP.  The main image was painted with H20s  for a lovely sheen.  A bit difficult to photograph.


The charm was in a packet of goodies won from my lovely DT sister Lynne.                                               

Please pop over to FSC and se the other gorgeous makes from the rest of the team and we would love to see you join us for this challenge.                                                                                                             

You still have until Thursday to join in my Celebration Candy when I will get DD to pick a name.            
             
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
