Hi Peeps Photobucket

For this months tag swap the theme is i'm not a fan of oriental but i have given it a go and made 3 hope they are ok.

For this one i used a blossom stamp for the background then stamped and embossed the geisha girl onto red card mounted onto gold mirri card used a coin, brad and some red beads to finish it off.claire-chinese

For my second tag i again used a floral stamp to do the background not sure what kind of flower this is though, i then stamped and embossed a tree onto red card mounted onto mirri card wrapped with with a torn piece of vellum added a white flower with brad.may-chinese

And for my third tag i used worn lipstick ink smudged all over, used my blossom stamp around the edges and a bird of paradise stamp, then stamped a butterfly onto vellum coloured in with gel pens finished off with a coin.may-chinese
Now all this talk of the orient and i'm starving hungry and need to order a chinese bang goes the diet chinese food
