OSA Design Challenge #2 and OSA Theme Challenge #2 cards.

I made a couple of quick cards using up some Oriental stamped/coloured images that I've had sitting in my stash for a while for these two challenges.
I painted the background for this card using Twinkling H2O's, then stamped the gorgeous Imperial Cargo 'Fuji Goddess' stamp on top of it. It's edged with gold Krylon pen then layered on some black cardstock, added some eyelets and a jump ring with a fan embellishment to the bottom right corner.

I took a second photo of this card so you get a better look at the lovely SEI Poppy background paper - it's a metallic silvery paper with white embossed poppies over the top. I layered the papers over a piece of black cardstock, wrapped some fibres around the end and adhered to a turquoise coloured card.


The second card below is for the OSA theme challenge, which was "cherry blossoms". My blossoms came printed on a kind of mulberry paper. The stamp is by Innovative Stamp Designs, layered this onto some red textured cardstock. The mulberry paper is attached to a black cardstock layer with gold brads, then adhered to a folded red textured card.
