Blue Flowers/Asian Artistry


Its a beautiful Sunday morning.  I woke up, had a cup of coffee, sat down at my desk, and looked out my office window at the beautifully calm Okanagan Lake.   

That my friends, is how I find all of my inspiration.


My card today is for the Friday Mashup challenge.  I chose to try the faux mother of pearl technique.  I found many tutuorials on you tube showing this technique.


 I began my creation with a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Bashful Blue cardstock.  I then ran a piece of the same cardstock through my bigshot, using the tulip border embossing folder.  The designer patterned paper is from Recollections.  The stamped image was created using the lovely Asian Artistry stamp set.  I colored directly onto the stamp using my markers in Pear Pizazz, Marina Mist & London Fog.


 Thank you for stopping by!
