Our CCEE stampers hostess this week is once again Joanne (jojot), and she asked us to make a card with an international flair. For me this was a HUGE challenge because I don't have many stamps that would fit that category. I did find a few oriental stamps in my inventory, so that was where I went with my card.
In addition, I chose her favorite color combination of red/white/black. I stamped the card base with two different stamps -- the bamboo stalks and the Japanese lantern -- and colored them with pale Memento markers. I stamped the Hero Arts collage onto white and then matted it in red and black. For a little interest, I added the oriental coin at the corner. If you'd like to play along with the CCEEers, stop by our blog. We'd love to have you join us.
