CD Sunday Challenge 2 - Artfully Asian
Hi everyone, I'm back today with my card for the second challenge at CD Sunday where the theme this week is 'Artfully Asian'.
Now, I'm the first to admit that I'm not 'into' oriental style cards. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing what other people do with the lovely images, but personally I'm useless at making them look attractive. Consequently I never make oriental cards if it can be helped, so this theme really WAS a challenge for me.
In order to try to make my card a little more appealing, I decided to use the wonderful octagonal easel card template from Crafty Ann's.
* Image - Joanna Sheen's 'Oriental Dreams' CD
* Papers - K & Co
* Everything else from my stash
I used a Sakura Pen-Touch gold pen (also from Joanna Sheen) to edge the template, mounted the image onto some pearlescent paper, designer paper and gold miri card and finished off with a couple of oriental peel-offs.
The 'stand' part of the easel card was embellished with Spellbinder's Shapeabilities 'Fancy Tags' die cut and the sentiment was produced on the PC.
