Oriental card

I am entering this card for Challenge #47 at Addicted to CAS where the code word is ORIENTAL. I inked a Hero Arts stamp and clear embossed it before watercolouring it with distress ink. I then used a white gel pen to go over the leaves. I felt the sentiment matched the oriental style.

Materials used:-
Stamp - Hero Arts Asian Frames
Sentiment - Chocolate Baroque Mackintosh Sentiments
Distress ink - festive berries
Background screen - EK punch

Thank you very much for visiting my blog - now pop over to Addicted to CAS to see what the design team and the other participants have created.
