Asian Beauty.


This card is made using one of my favourite Asian stamps - Cinnabar by Stampington's Lynne Perrella (Imperial Cargo line). I've used the CPS sketch #81 for the card design. This was a pretty quick card to make as I already had the stamped image in my stash.

The background for the stamped image is one of my first attempts at the polished stone technique using alcohol inks (I think this was made using a Pinata ink). I don't think I quite nailed the technique with this one, but I decided to use it anyway as the colour matched well with the SEI Poppy papers that I used with it.

I've added some polka dot ribbon and some black eyelets - I must say that I'm using eyelets a lot more since I lashed out and bought a Crop-a-dile! This tool is fantastic, it's so much easier to set eyelets using it.

The fan embellishment is yet another flea market find..........it was originally one of a pair of earrings!


Thanks for visiting today and have a great weekend!
