Oriental Reflection (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with my first sample using the beautiful new Eastern Landscape stamps


These stamps work beautifully with the other oriental stamp sets, for this card I've used some of the new stamps with stamps from Lily Pad. I began by stamping the reflection, using an ink blending mat to stamp the images using memento ink and then laying the card over the stamped mages and rolling over with my brayer to transfer the ink. Its so easy to position the clear stamps to make the landscape match the reflection perfectly. I used the scrunched paper technique to brayer the water and added some colour to the scene and the reflection with distress markers.

I matted the scene on some white card and then on hot pink card to pick out the pink from the waterlily and the blossoms around the top of the card.

Thanks for popping by today
