Lanterns in the Trees
Topic: New Work

Challenge today was to pick a single stamp and design a card around it. The one I chose was the string of lanterns. Then I picked out a stamp of blossoming branches for the lanterns to hang from and, finally, a grass image to define the ground. All were stamped on white cardstock with archival ink, colored with watercolor pencils and gone over lightly over with a water brush.  I used blue pencil very lightly on the sky to create a sunny sky and brushed with water as well.

I stamped the greeting with the archival ink and trimmed the image to size. Two pieces of pink card are placed behind opposing corners and an oriental gold corner laid on. All this is placed on green folded card base.

Rub-on borders are applied to the top and the bottom. Then a pair of teardrop rhinestones were arranged to form a heart. A little stem finished it off.
