I like the simplicity of Asian designs and so I couldn't resist the Hero Art set of stamp and embossing folder that looks like a stalk of bamboo. Using Tsukineko waterbased brush tipped marking pens, I colored the rubber stamp and misted it lightly before stamping it on watercolor paper. This faux watercolor painting was then mounted on specialty papers and a ribbon and sticker were added. On the blue green card the stamped design was embossed before attaching to the card with Merikan tape. Having a stash of all occasion cards like these makes it a cinch to add an appropriate sentiment and send it out to acknowledge a special event or express sympathy. When you have spare time why not whip up a few of these Asian inspired so you'll be prepared for the day when you just don't have time to spare but you really want to send a handcrafted card to show your heartfelt emotion. Thanks for visiting. Smile and enjoy your day!
