Geisha Tea

My blog is not always 100% Stampin' Up, however I usually use something Stampin' Up in all my creations. A lot of paper for sure. I just love how all the cardstock colors stay consistent and coordinate. Unfortunately several of the purples just retired and I did this card back in May. This stamp was a special gift sent all the way from Australia from my friend Mary W. I spend a great majority of my art time on the Oriental Stamp Art list. I just love oriental style art. The image is hand colored with watercolor pencils. I made a set of these and sent them out as RAKs.
I am looking forward to playing with my new sets from Stampin' Up that have an oriental flavor from the new catalog, Kimono Kids and Plant Hope. I am always excited to find oriental style items in my Stampin' Up catalog. There will be some new RAKs made soon. Sharing a card to brighten up a day is such a fun way to surprise someone. I challenge you to make a card and send it along to a friend today!
