Lots to do - Oriental

Its the week-end again, someone at work said it is going to be the last nice week-end of summer!    Surely not.    What ever the weather we have a great new challenge for you at Lots to do We are looking east this week with an Oriental theme.

You will almost certainly have seen the chap with the fancy punches at the craft shows, his speed and accuracy with those punches is spellbinding.   One of them was used here on an off centre gatefold card.   Double Happiness is a Dreamweaver stencil with gold diamension paste.   The little border below the image is heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer and some of the ep was sprinkled over the partly dry diamension paste.

Do hope you will visit us at Lots to do and share your oriental projects with us.

  6. Oh Wow, this looks so elegant , the shine on the Double Happiness is amazing, it looks so rich. Also the colour of the cosmic shimmer embossing is beautiful , what a rich colour that it. I have some of those punches.....unused.....I may get them out and give them another try. Mine never worked for me the way they did at the craft show lol.

  9. Your card is fab Zoe, I love the paste with the EP sprinkled on. I have a set of those punches but mine doesn't work like they do at the show, really should give it another try. It's not helped by the fact that my instructional DVD that I got with it doesn't work.

    Hugs Jackie x
