Oriental Treasure

Here is my other 'Oriental Lady' card.  The gorgeous paper is Papermania 'Oriental Treasures' Pack. I downloaded the Stitchy Bear Digital Stamp 'Oriental Lady 2' a while ago to use with the papers. So thought it was about time that I used it!

One Stitch at a Time Challenge have a 'Pretty in Print' Contest this month. Click on links for details.

The dress is paper-pieced from the same design paper used on card. I've used Copic E11 and R20 for skin. Pastel Blue and Cornflower Promarkers for Parasol. Copic E55 for flower in hair and Fine Black Liner Pen for details.

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Pearls and Glitter Button from Stash. Sentiment was made on computer. 

I would like to enter this into the following Challenge:

One Stitch At a Time - Challenge 75 - 'Anything Goes' (ends 20th August 2011) 

Thanks for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
Take care!
Love n Hugs

That is one of the few Papermania pack I do not own and I may have to change my mind. This is a very elegant card and it is fab with Stitchy's Image. Good Luck with the competition.

Many thanks for joining in with our Anything Goes challenge over at OSAAT
