Easels at Sweet Pea Stampers

Hiya folks!

Phew, made it here at last!! What a day, had to get up early to make a dentist run. D no2 had to have a tooth extracted after an absess was found under it, so she's full of misery now. Then I had to make a quick dash back home (20 minutes by car) to pick the rest of the family up and get hubby to the bus station. He's off on a family reunion come anniversary party (shame we couldn't all go!) Plus he get to visit the hospitality suite at the local rugby match on Saturday - Gloucester vs Harlequins. Alright for some eh?!!

Still, at least I get to have the compy to myself all weekend, and no snoring to contend with - yeay!!

Right, whinge over, onto my card today, which is my DT piece for Sweet Pea Stampers. This time we are after your Easel Card creations. These are proving very popular at the moment, so we are hoping this challenge will have loads of entries.

I decided to do oriental this time, haven't done an oriental theme for a while. This stamp is named 'Bamboo Serenade'. I coloured her with my usual watercolour pencils, and mounted onto some gold mirri and papers from a Debbie Moore cd. I've gone for an autumnal colour theme here rather than the usual oriental type colours of red and black and gold. Although, I couldn't leave out the gold, just makes it more oppulent to look at don't you think?

Metallic ribbon, fabric flowers and brads are all from the stash. The corner shape is a cuttlebug die cut from pearlescent brown cardstock. The sentiment is computer generated. All mounted onto a green base cardstock with metallic gold rub-on over the edges.

I have found a few challenges to enter this into:
Truly Scrumptious - sketch + easel card
Secret Crafter - Oriental
Corrosive Challenge - No white (skin is pink not white)
The Pink Elephant - Brown and Orange (I have some green and gold too!)
Pear Tree Designs - Free for all

Do stop by the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog and check out the prizes for the lucky winner, and all the lovely DT creations!
