Artfully Asian Card

This is one of only a few cards I've sent to SU for the monthly contest. It appeared on the showcase on December 30, 2006. I actually made this for a demo meeting (contest) I had shortly after the 2006-2007 catalog came out. It's made with all products from SU. I used basic black for the body of the card, and stamped with whisper white craft ink on going gray using the beautiful paisley background stamp. The main image is stamped in basic black classic ink on whisper white, and given the splatter effect with a going gray stampin' write marker in the color spritzer tool. I matted on basic black and used a layer of white mulberry paper to soften it, then matted again in going gray and basic black. The edges were then roughened and softened up with the cutter kit.....then tied with black grosgrain ribbon and mounted with stampin dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped with Jet Black StaZon.
