Eastern Promise

Hello there folks and welcome to my post today which is for the new challenge over at Make My Monday which has a theme chosen by Suzi B - Eastern Promise.
I have to admit having struggled a bit with this one and in the end a beautiful image from Aurora Wings called Lotus Sprite came to the rescue as she has quite an Oriental look about her. I hope you like my creation.


The background paper here actually came first and was created with one of the V & A quilt inspired stamps which I thought was perfect with its' delicate bamboo design. I stamped it with VersaFine Spanish Moss ink and embossed with clear powder. I then added VersaMagic Pink Grapefruit direct to paper from the ink pad.
I then printed the image out on to smooth thick cartridge paper and coloured her with Aquamarkers, adding detail with Prisma pencils. I added a narrow green mat and a wider one of matte gold card with a touch of subtle sparkle.
I then dry embossed a panel of the same green card with the Cuttlebug bamboo folder and assembled the card as you see adding the Chinese character I found on the internet to finish.

Have a lovely day and great week.
Hugs,
Fliss xx
