My little cherry blossom.........

OK, so when you scroll down to view my card today, for the 'green fingered' amongst us..........I know......... I'm pretty sure the flowers are not actually cherry blossoms! The blog post title is staying 'as is' though, mainly because I couldn't think of anything else that was suitably oriental and sweet! Shall I get on with it?

It was Bellarific Friday yesterday (I'm only one day late!), over at the Stamping Bella blog, and the theme this week was to dust off, and show some love to those 'Ketto' stamps. This gave me the perfect opportunity to go part with some $$$$ and buy a new one. Now Ketto's always trigger an Oriental theme in my brain, and the stamp I've used here - Ginger Ketto was no exception. So here she is...........Miss Ginger Ketto...........

I like this card and I think I've finally figured out, that whenever I pair a colour with's instant satisfaction!
So, of course she is coloured with Prisma's and a little Copic marker on her face. You probably can't tell from the photograph, but there is a little glitter on her dress, and I used a clear Sakura Glaze pen to highlight her eyelashes, and the little black dots around her head. I sponged around the image with a Cat's Eye Chalk Ink and used my lurvly new lacy square Nestie again (still love it!). There is some white handmade paper under there to create a little texture, and I took the plunge and parted with another of my very favourite Prima felt flower stems.........I only have one left from my pack of 3, which lucky project gets graced with it's presence? I will digress here and show you the first card, using contestant #1 from my Prima flower stem Mom's Birthday card, back in the summertime (prior to my launch into blogging).............

...........the outside.......... .............and inside.............

Another Oriental card but this time using a Mo Manning image.

Anyhoooooo..........back to my original conversation. I added a couple of Prima flowers on there with a little bling, some white coloured 'hemp' and those very cute heart shaped stick pins. DP is from a 'freebie' pack (included with a magazine) from Kate Knight.
