An Oriental Congrats


Good morning!

Today I would like to share with you a card that I made using the inspiration oner on the Altenew blog. This month there was pictures of buildings in China,I took the colours from the images.

I love the ‘Magnolias For Her’set and thought it would be great coloured up using the colours from the photos.


Firstly I stamped my flower and leaf cluster by stamping and masking, using a light ink. I then coloured using Copic Markers and added more shadow in with pencils. Once I was happy I stamped over all of the images again in the same way with VersaMark and heat embossed in gold.

For the sentiment I cut the congrats from Winnie & Walter ‘The Big, the Bold and You’ Cutaways and added the other part in gold ink using Altenew ‘Dodecagram’.

A couple of gold splatters and a navy piece of patterned paper down the left edge finished the card.

I would really love to know what you think of my card! Please leave me a comment, maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my blog :) If your interested I’m also onFacebook and I share sneak peeks of my projects (and my life) on Instagram.

I hope you have a beautiful day and I will see you again soon.
