Oriental Ladies


I have a card to show you,I actually made this one yesterday but the light was so bad last night that I couldnt take a decent picture.

For this card I have used a set of stamps called Oriental Ladies from Woodware. I stamped onto the DP's and paper pieced some of the dresses and coloured with my promakers on the rest.

Here is my card

I also used a small bamboo stamp that came in the set to make Faux stitching around the edge of the card. Lanterns were stamped from the same set and coloured with my promarkers.

From my stash I have used a doily,sentiment and punched some silver butterflies.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Promarker Challenge---From around the world

Tuesday Throwdown---Paper Piecing

Whimsy Inspires---Stitch It

Cute Card Thursday---Anything goes
