Sticking with the style of art, I kept it very simple with clean lines on the card. There aren't tons of layers, just enough to give it some interest. And I made this a Mother's Day card, because every mother deserves flowers on her special day. (hint, hint)
All stamps and materials by Stampin' Up! of course!
Stamps: Asian Artistry and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Orchid Opulence, Old Olive, Whisper White cardstock, and Old Olive Patterns Designer Series Paper
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Orchid Opulence, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, and Crushed Curry
Accessories: AquaPainter, PearlEx (retired) with Gum Arabic, Eyelet Border Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, White Organza Ribbon, and Dimensionals
While coloring the images, I tried to do it sketchily (is that a word??) and leave white areas. You can't really tell much from the picture, but the dragonfly was first lightly colored with Orchid Opulence then a layer of PearlEx over it. It realy shimmers with the PearlEx over the color! Love it!
In my opinion, this is a great set to earn as a hostess. I can see all kinds of cards that would benefit from an Asian influence.
Have a wonderful day today and stamp and color til your creative soul is satisfied!
