Oriental card

I was actually inspired while visiting the dentist today!! can you believe that!.. I saw a tiny little oriental card on the distant wall behind the receptionists desk.. all I could see was the black oriental bridge and some trees..(my eyes are bad Lol)... but enough for it to spark my imagination knowing what stamps I have with one of my oriental lady new digital stamps.

I have used an 8" x 8" card base, stamping several of my bonsai trees leaving the pots un inked... coloured them with promarker pens. I made the oriental style bridge (well it looks it to me anyway - artistic licence Lol).. using the large lattice Martha Stewart punch. The Roses are ones I made a while back . After adding some pink punched flowers, I added some sequins and tiny rhinestones to embellish. The lady is coloured with promarkers and then I used a glue pen to add red foil in a pattern. I feel quite pleased with myself... and I have really inky fingers Lol!!

Here's my card

Thanks for visiting today... See you soon
