As always the challenge will run for 2 weeks alongside the regular challenge which is currently AROUND THE WORLD so you can enter into both as that one is open until 4th Oct.
Oriental cardmaking kit from The Stampman as shown above.
The team of Little Misses have done a beautiful job of these and so many ideas so please leave them some loves :)
I have used an unmounted stamp which I've had for years and have long forgotten from whence it came!
I started by using two colours of Distress inks on my card then stamped the image in black Versafine, I used a post-it note to mask the image and stamped the bamboo to frame the left side of the image and while the mask was still in place I spritzed on some green Altered Originals ink. The backing is some handmade oriental paper which I've had kicking around for a long time and I used some Mizuhiki cords to tie a knot which the instructions called Felicitatieknoop (not sure which language the instructions are in - just as well there were diagrams!). The greeting translates as Love.
I'd love to take the credit, but the piccie of bamboo was copied from an old picture I have had for years using my grey Copics onto Ryman's coated card.
The oriental writing was stamped with Brilliance Rocket Red over the painted image.
This was mounted onto silver foil board and then with 3d foam onto hammered white cardstock.
The knotted cord is held in place with red sealing wax and an oriental coin.
