Blue Oriental Lady
So... I had a look through some creations from the past and found this lovely oriental card. I love oriental style and have started rummaging through my collection to start making some new cards - so you may well see this lady again soon as she's one of my favourite stamps - just so detailed.
I've used a textured card blank and spritzed with a Patina Glimmer Mist (isn't it sad that I made this card in 2009 and I know what colour I used on it!). Spraying onto a textured cardstock gives an extra dimension because the mica collects in the dips in the cardstock.
She has been stamped all in blue and everything else is toned in. I like to work in one colour - you can get some lovely effects. The little knot is a Mizuhiki cord knot - great fun to make from Japanese paper cords (we stock these in the shop) - and they are lovely to embellish your cards and even use on your jewellery too!
Well the last delivery has arrived today for the show - lots of Zentangling books! So it looks like I'm sort of organised!
Back tomorrow with a sneaky peak of what I'm demonstrating at the weekend
