TIO #5 - Walk Like an Egyptian

I really enjoyed thinking about this one, for the challenge on my DragonsDream blog - Walk Like an Egyptian. I wanted to finish up with something different this week, and I was pleased with the result. I used a duo of stamps from a Non Sequetur sheet, available from The StampMan. They complement each other with the echo of the column. They were stamped with black onyx, on to white card, and embossed with clear ep. I then splodged them with lots of icy primrose gold starburst stain, with a brushing only of ramblin rose pink. Small details were picked out with various Sakura pens.

The lotus image is one from my computer set and the metal charms are from my stash. The whole lot is set off by the beautifully figured mirror board. So a collage with a difference. Thanks for looking...

This is really beautiful, Frankie. A real piece of art. I love the mirror board and your lotus flower.
You've definitely set another interesting challenge this week. I thought the Oriental would be difficult, but this one has me stumped.Give me a few days though, something will appear!!!!

Frankie, this is so gorgeous! I love the Egyptian theme. I posted my entry but it hasn't shown up yet. Two other challenges have suddenly let my posts go into the spam folder. I don't know why now, but would you please check and let me know if I need to re-post?
