A Little Bit Oriental Blog Hop


Today we are excited to launch another gorgeous collection from Sheena Douglass called A Little Bit Oriental. This collection has four beautiful stamp sets, four 5x7 embossing folders and a paper pad
with 48 sheets of coordinating pattern papers in 16 designs. All of these wonderful new products are available right now on the Crafter’s Companion website.

You should have arrived here from the blog of the lovely and talented Leah l'Orange.

For my card, I used the Koi stamp set. I stamped the largest koi in waterproof ink and used diluted spray inks and a paint brush to create the splatters. I added Vanilla Smooch Spritz by Clearsnap and allowed it to dry. Once it was dry, I displayed great courage by handwriting the sentiment with a Pitt artist pen by Faber-Castel. I cut my panel down and adhered it, offset, to my card front.

Hop along and don’t forget to leave comments along the way because we will be selecting a random winner who will receive one of the lovely new Sheena Stamp Sets (winner’s choice).

Your next stop on the hop is my talented teammate, Roxanne!
