Going Oriental for The Allsorts Challenge

I'm guest designing for the Allsorts Challenge this week and the theme is Oriental. It became a thinking of you card as I thought very much of Japan whilst making it.

I brayered a glossy card with Distress Inks and masked off for the sun. The mountain is a Stampscape stamp and it was stamped with a ColorBox chalk. The bamboo, the text and the butterflies are from the Penny Black Illumination set, they were all stamped with Memories ink (let the ink dry a day before you move on with the highlights, otherwise it will smudge). The highlights were made with a white Sakura pen. Corners are QK. The half pearls were white but I coloured them with a purple marker.

Thank you so much for having me Allsorts!
