Oriental Lady

Have been following Linda Cain's beautiful works this week on the Paperartsy Blog, and have been inspired to create this piece.

Sorry did not take pics from the start, will try better. Firstly I started with a piece of manilla card, cover with texture paste and stamped into this with Minis 22 and 29 allowed to dry and painted with  Fresco paints, Mermaid, Inky Pool and  French Roast and a few gold highlights. Used Metal card for the top and bottom pieces, die cut from a TH die, coloured with Inky Pool and French Roast and stamped in when paint was wet with Mini 29.  I like this effect. Stamped Oriental Lady from Lynne Perrella LPC025 on to card with Archival Black and embossed in clear, coloured with Distress Markers. The bottom layer is Inky Pool and Mermaid and again stamped in Black Archival using Mini 29.  Finished off with white pen and chinese hanging thingy from stash from years ago.

Hope you like, thanks for looking.
