TIO #4 - Oriental ... China Blue

Here is my entry for the TIO challenge #4, Oriental - China Blue. It is a subject dear to my heart, oriental... so could not resist making a tag with that theme.

I used a shades of blue Blending Blox pad, on my heat sheet, and smooshed the card about a bit!! Then over printed with the fan shape in the same pad. Think both these stamps came from QVC - they were the ones that peeled off their wood too easily, so I stuck them to Easimount...

The bamboo is from an Aspect of Design sheet from The StampMan, by Kay Carley. It's a fantastic stamp for all sorts of reasons. It was stamped in black onyx and embossed with clear ep (when is it not!!??) The lady and the fan were done in the same way, but on really dark card for contrast. Ribbons and flowers, from my stash... job done!! Thanks for looking.

Morning Frankie, wow, a sneak peek at tomorrows challenge. Love it, just done an oriental for another challenge in red and black which was theit theme.

My problem now is going to be the blue, don't know why but it's a colour I rarely use, so that's my personal challenge I guess.

This is lovely Frankie. I love the blue, so fresh and cheerful!
Oriental - Mmmm that's going to be interesting. I don't think I own an oriental stamp, not really my thing, still that's the fun of the challenge. I shall put my thinking cap on.
