Under the influence....

Eastern influence that is. This new stamp set is just beautiful! I love the delicate images! This card is pretty simple. I stamped the rose onto watercolor paper using the black Staz-on stamp pad. I scribbled markers onto the top of a stamp case and use the Aqua painter to pick up the color and paint the image. I could have done the same thing with blender pens, but they aren't as juicy and they don't let the colors blend around quite as much. I could have used watercolor crayons, but I didn't want it very dark. Lots of options in the watercolor world. Love it!
I mounted my focal point onto only orange cardstock and wrapped some gold cording around the corners. The tag is punched out and layered on a larger punched circle of ruby red. The patterned paper in the background is from the Haiku set. I'm not sure who this card will go to...I have so many beautiful friends! I am truly blessed!!
