Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight challenge

Today's card is my DT card for the Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight challenge and this week the spotlight spotlight is on everything Oriental. My teamies have come up with some gorgeous projects so pop on over and have a look if you need some inspiration. The prize for this challenge is an Oriental cardmaking kit from The Stampman.

I  used an unmounted stamp which I've had for years and have long forgotten from whence it came and started by using two colours of Distress inks on my card then stamping the image in black Versafine, I used a post-it note to mask the image and stamped the bamboo to frame the left side of the image and while the mask was still in place I spritzed on some green Altered Originals ink. The backing is some handmade oriental paper which I've had kicking around for a long time and I used some Mizuhiki cords to tie a knot which the instructions called Felicitatieknoop (not sure which language the instructions are in - just as well there were diagrams!). The greeting translates as Love.

I am also entering this in:
Corrosive challenge - Masking
ABC challenge - Distressing  - oops too late for this one!
Spoonful of Sugar - Anything goes

Hi Jenni Love the colours and the effects you got with the distress inks. I will have to get mine out and have a play.
Good luck with the craft stall.
