FSC - Oriental

I rarely make an oriental themed card and find them quite difficult so I chose the red, gold and black which seems to be the most popular colours and some gold embossing powder.


I stamped the flower and embossed with black EP, coloured with metallic promarkers. Having masked it off I stamped the chinese letters - don't know what they say lol, then sprayed with gold sparkle.


The red mount was stamped with a flower border and ep with gold embossing powder and the roughly added gold ep on the other edges. Some mounting, a chinese embellishment and tassle and a black ribbon finished it off.


Phew not my style at all.

Have a great Sunday.

I think this is gorgeous and rich! I like how you have chosen that deep burgundy rather than a bright red,
