I've had this little Oriental Lady stamp for ages and not used it, simply because I wasn't sure what to do with it. It's from Clarity Stamps minature range and because it's so small I thought it would get lost on a card. However, I was determined to do something with it and here it is.
You probably can't tell from the photo, but the black card is scored into a grid pattern (got a new Scor-pal so was having a little play with it). The centre of the black card has been cut out to give a sort of window look and the small square with the image on placed centrally inside. The leaves came from a Tapestry stamp set I have (again never used until this card) which I think give a nice framed effect. I just added some Weathered Wood distress ink around the edges and added some gold coins (from a Habico set of stamps) and gold ribbon. I edged the black card with some gold leaf. Now I've managed to use her once I think she will be making another appearance, I think maybe a reflection next.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you all have a great bank holiday. x
