As promised, I'm back to post another card using the Eastern Influences set. This card doesn't have an Eastern feel to it all all but that's why I love this set, so many different ways you could use it.
I saw this card a while ago and fell in love with the colour combination and the layout. Although I think I should have gone with a slightly deeper blue. The dsp matches with a retired in colour, Baja Breeze, but I found that it really works well with a number of blues. I did not stamp a sentiment on the front of the card, I'll do that once I decide what I need it for.
I stamped the image in basic black and used my ink pads and blender pens to colour the image. I'm still trying to figure out whether I prefer water colouring with aqua painters or blender pens. Well I guess it wouldn't really be water colouring if I use a blender pen but I can get almost the same results. I added a little dazzling diamonds to the flower to give it a little extra dazzle! And used crystal effects for the faux brads.
