A vase but not a vase (by Debbie)

Hi Folks. I thought I'd show a card today that I made a little while ago. I was telling a friend about it on Sunday at a local craft show when she was purchasing some of Chocolate Baroque Halloween Clear Stamps.
I have turned the lantern upside down to look like a vase. The tassel was masked so the black ink didn't go on to it. Another mask was used to cover the top of the vase so I could place the blossom branch in it. I coloured with promarkers and stamped a sentiment from Best Relative Ever. A couple of pearls and matting onto black finished off the card. Thanks for visiting, Debbie

  5. Beautifully elegant & rather ingenious too. I can't get over how softly you coloured it with those ProMarkers.
