Good morning. Well did we all watch the wedding yesterday? I was glued to the telly all day (from 8am - 4pm and then the highlights later in the evening!!!) and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. What a beautiful occasion and a beautiful couple who are so obviously in love.
Before I tell you about this week's challenege at Allsorts I thought I should let you know that we are having
A BIRTHDAY BASH BLOG HOP
very soon to celebrate are upcoming 2nd anniversary
as the theme.
Now this is not a style I have ever done before and didn't really know what to do until I remembered that I have some fabulous Oriental Character Digi Stamps from Digi Stamp Boutique and they happen to be our regular last week of the month sponsor - so perfect!
I then decided that I would make a kimono shaped base card - using a template from the MCS Encyclopedia of templates.
The DP is from Nitwits - originally it was brown & cream but I changed the colour in MCS Professional to match the colour I had used for the image.
A few adhesive pearls and some Wild Orchid Craft Cherry Blossom flowers (colour changed using Dusty Concorde Distress Ink) and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly to finish it off.
This may not be totally traditional oriental - but I'm quite pleased with the result.
Hope you like it too.
