Oriental Red Flower

Xin nian kuaile - Happy New Year.
Here is an oriental flower from Stamps Happen, stamped and embossed on to acetate. I have used alcohol inks to paint in some colour, but the main feature is the gold foiling behind the image. Quite dramatic, I think.

The whole card is mounted on to light brown Bazzill Basics orange peel cardstock, and the crease card is red BB. The backer has the same stamped image on to the red mirri and embossed with clear ep. I made a small tile and triple embossed it with the flower stamp, so that it matched the image underneath.... Gong xi fa cai - Wishing you Prosperity.
