CHALLENGE 23 ~ ORIENTAL ORIGINS

This week I was inspired by this beautiful pack of cards that I found in a Junk shop in Cognac, I first spotted the box , and on opening it found these gorgeous oriental cards inside








I photocopied 2 cards then printed them onto some Inkjet Artist Canvas bought from Joanna Sheen website
I found a piece of oriental backing paper and photocopied it onto a piece of red card using the black only option, I then tore a piece to size and inked the edges with gold and then mounted it onto a black card, 3 paper flowers and buttons finished it off


Card 2
Backing paper and image
Ooh la la Creations Passion for Fashion CD



Card 3
Pyramid Image
Ooh la la Creations
Floral Extravaganza CD2

And finally an ATC
teamed with a mini waterfall from the Passion for Fashion CD which I resized to fit




I enjoyed making these and hope you will join in with the challenge this week, please leave a link to your creation so we can come and see
And if you do you will be entered into the draw to win this BLOG CANDY which includes

Images from the pack of cards 2 of which are printed on Artist canvas, peel offs, pk Oriental Collage rub ons, ribbons, Oriental coins, gems, buttons, flowers and bows

My 2 favourite pickers Harry & Maisy will draw the name from the hat on monday 17th Nov

Good Luck

Wendi & Emma
