So - of course - I HAD to play with this challenge this month!
I love Chinese paintings with the typical red signature on one side or corner - and so I tried to mimic one of these with the Altenews "Vintage Roses" stamp set and my own asian signature stamp.
As I love to use vellum lately, I embossed some golden stripes (background stamp from Hero Arts) and stamped one of the roses on a piece of handmade paper.
I centered everything, as Chinese people love all things balanced out.
Here are the inspirational pictures of the challenge:
... and a close up of the card...
I´ll also link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
They are showcasing Hero Arts products this week - and I used the Hero Arts "Canvas Stripes" stamp for the background. I like it a lot because of the uneven structure of the stripes - a really cool effect!
I think it´s always fabulous to see how well products from different companies go together!
... which means "thank you"!
