A Bit Of Oriental

Well this weekend saw the death of my laptop. Fortunately I was able to rescue all my files before it's final swan song. And these are a couple of the pictures saved. I recently participated in a moongate mingle on OSA 
and created 2 versions of my card. One for my partner and one for our hostess. The background is hand painted with shimmer paints. When I have a couple of hours and my muse is stuck, I will often make backgrounds with no particular goal in mind and tuck them away for future use. You can the shimmer in the second card. The image itself is enhanced with Smooch inks.

It's always amazing how holding the camera at different angles and distances changes the light on a card. Both of these were taken in the same photo booth and have an entirely different look. But the 2nd one captured the shimmer and shows the true colors better, while the first shows more details.
