Asian Artistry – Takes 1 & 2

Had a vision for this card as I wanted to incorporate some beautiful patterned paper that was sent to me by Michelle a Stamping Sister who was at that time living and working in Japan.  I wanted this card to have an oriental feel to it but unfortunately my first attempt just didn’t live up to my expectations.




Just didn’t look right at all – was it because I had offset the right hand greeting past the edge of the card or was it the base cardstock in white.  I decided to change both and see what the outcome was.





Ah … that’s much better and more like what I envisaged though the photo doesn’t show the gold metallic cardstock up as well as it should.

To give you an idea of the beautiful paper, here is a close up picture.




Isn’t it gorgeous!!
