Crafts 4 Eternity - I got lost!

Hi friends - how are you?

Ever have this great idea in your head but execution just doesn't bring it to life? Yeah...now you know why the title says "I got lost!" LOL

This week at Crafts 4 Eternity, our recipe is "Oriental Theme"... This week we are sponsored by Crafts 4 Eternity Craft Store, one randomly selected winner will receive a choice of 3 digital stamps - so go ahead, show us your Oriental Theme!!

Anyway, I was thinking oriental - red, poppy flowers, etc... My poppies didn't turn out red but I loved them anyway, so I just kept on keepin' on! LOL Michele's going to fire me for not turning out an oriental themed card; but work with me here okay? LOL!!

I used MFT's Grand Peaceful Flowers Stencil and modeling paste with distress inks; the leaves and stems are Bundled Sage and Forrest Moss; the flowers are Victoria Velvet and Fired Brick with some Cranberry dimensional pearls mixed in. And then the other flowers right in the middle are white modeling paste coated with SU! Dazzling Diamonds. I made this into a sympathy card adding a flag with the sentiment.


I added a strip of musical washi tape and then used a Copic to create the pink stripe right next to the washi tape. I used Tim Holtz watercolor paper; therefore the Copic ink is splotchy which I love!! I didn't coat the paper heavily, just enough to add a touch of pink. Finished it off with an olive button and 3 sequins.

Thanks for stopping by; I love when you visit...and shhhh....don't tell my boss I got lost trying to achieve my Oriental Theme. :D Be sure to join the fun, we love seeing your creations!!

Hugs,
