Japense Garden

I created this card for the recent Waltzingmouse sketch (wmsc60). I was inspired by Lynn’s Asian Garden card – see it here. I loved her image composition and the black & red colors.

To keep with the sketch I had to put my own spin on Lynn’s card. I did keep her stamp composition. I added kraft to the color palette (mostly because I didn’t like having black or red for that panel of the sketch). I also used vanilla ink to sponge the edges – to get a soft feel.

I really love the weave stamp that is part of this set and used it on the kraft panel. The rhinestones are colored with Copics. I am very disappointed that there isn’t a cherry color Copic! There is a red, but it is a bright red – nothing really darker…so strange.

Thanks for taking a peek!
