Oriental pink

Pink and green and a very delicate feel was what struck me about the Muse card this week. Normally I’d have added the butterfly as on Anita’s pretty card, but I’m not fond of shakers.

Having painted the stamp with the pink and green watercolours, and stamped, it looks nothing at all like the original stamp in fact, but the result has a pleasing Oriental look, I think, so I ran with that.    I added some Chinese bling stickers to emphasise that feel. The text doesn’t mean anything!

So it’s not very similar too, but definitely inspired by Anita’s card!

So this is my entry for Muse #252 this week.

And this is definitely feminine enough for Watercooler Wednesdays’ Feminine Challenge WWC156 from Penny.

again delights me with green and
Oriental pink!

    Isn’t it funny how inspiration can lead us in a totally different direction, Helen? I love the backstory and the wonderful colours. Your watercolouring and stamping really did add a very Oriental “feel” to the card so the gold Chinese script is the perfect finishing touch. Love it! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

    Helen you’ve created such a soft and feminine card for this week’s “Feminine Anything Goes” challenge at the Watercooler. I love that you applied the watercolour to the stamp and the image blended to create an almost mystical Oriental design. The addition of the gold lettering is perfect. Beautiful!
