Artfully Asian Vases


Hi Everyone,

I'm very excited about the response from all of you, Thank You! I still don't feel I have the hang of this new blogging adventure....but here goes.

I actually did this card for my downline swap last month and was so excited to swap this card with my group.
The inspiration for this card was Michelle Zindorf. She however did it with punched flowers.....she is one talented lady.
When I saw these great little vases created with our large oval punches I was floored. I wanted to add real flowers...so I proceeded to hunt for the perfect stamp to create my flowers.

I think the Artfully Asian Stamp was just the right touch.....what I did was use my marker to just color in the areas I needed and masked the little vase and stamped (don't forget to huff). I used the top part of the main image stamp and the center of it as well. It still looked a little skimpy to me so I used my Chocolate Chip marker and added a few flowers and berries of my own and then colored. I think the end result was just what I was thinking.

I hope you enjoy it!

This is just a stunning card - love what you did with the vases - thanks for tagging me and for leaving a comment on my blog so I could find your blog. Now I just have to think of 7 random things about myself to post on my blog.

I love this card. Will be trying it several different ways with the flowers and all.
