Asian Artistry Challenge

I needed to make some birthday and thank you cards.  I also wanted to participate in a challenge so I decided to combine the two.  This sketch was not easy for me, I guess that is why they call it a challenge!

Stamps:  Asian Artistry and Thank You Kindly

Paper:  Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Bride specialty paper.

Ink:  Black Stazon, Old Olive, Soft Suede,Rich Razzleberry

Extras:  SU Texturz plate-SU Backgrounds #1, 1/2 pearls, 1/4" circle punch, Aqua Painter

On this card I sponged the Bride Specialty paper(striped piece) with Rich Razzleberry ink.  I love how this looks.  I used the swirl pattern in the Bride Specialty paper pack and stamped the flower.  Once again the design on the paper resists the ink in places.  This makes for an interesting design on the flowers and the leaves. 

Here is what the sketch looks like:


Thank you Stamping 411 for a fun and challenging challenge!

They are both amazing! I love this stamp set, but have never used this image.. Looks like i better get it off the shelf. I like both color schemes too.. You really did a spectacular job!
