Asian Artistry


I know that some of you are enjoying a long weekend this weekend and I hope that the weather is perfect for you.

I got all my jobs done early this evening having spent most of the morning cleaning house in readiness for yet another house inspection, so I managed to make it in to my craft room early tonight.

But unfortunately I was lacking inspiration. I decided in the end to set myself a little challenge to use something I have had sitting around for a while and never touched. This ended up being some free papers from a magazine that my lovely Mum sent up to me a while back and a new stamp set that has sat for quite a while just waiting to be inked up.

And although you can't see much of it I used my Stampin Up! Scollop border punch so I decided to enter this card in to the challenge #17 - Border Punch over at Your Next Stamp.

DP free from magazine
Cardstock - Riding Hood Red and Whisper White from Stampin Up!
Ink - Riding Hood Red and Old Olive from Stampin Up!
Stamp set - Asian Artistry from Stampin Up!

Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
