Orchid and Bamboo.......


...or is that just another way of saying 'pink and green' , a colour combo I seem to be overdoing at the moment. (It's our current challenge at Inkspirational).

Anyway, I do love an oriental theme so I had to enter the challenge at Allsorts. I normally go for a more ornate oriental look, with rich and dark colours, but I had a piece of card on my table which I'd used to mop the ink of my mat from a prcvious project, stamped  the geisha on it (make unknown) and liked it. I stamped and embossed the lily ( Sheena Douglass)  on the same cardstock and, on both images, stippled the edges with Orchid Brilliance ink. The background embossing folder is also Sheena Douglass.
