A little bit Oriental Blog Hop!

The designers over at Crafter's Companion are hopping with joy this week!  Sheena Douglass has just released another absolutely gorgeous new collection called A Little Bit Oriental.  The collection not has 4 brilliant new stamp set, but also includes 4 matching 5x7 embossing folders and a 48-piece paper crafting collection

To celebrate this stunning new release, the designers have been busy making some wonderful projects and we can’t wait to share them with you. Hop along and don’t forget to leave comments along the way because Crafter's Companion will be selecting a random winner who will receive one of the lovely new Sheena Stamp Sets (winner’s choice).  


I used the Koi and Waterlilies stamp set for my card.  Don't you just love water scenes?  They always make me feel so serene :)   I used the following Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers to color the lovely stamps:

Water: IB1, IB2

Flowers: PP1, PP2, GB1
Leaves: LG2, LG3

To create the sparkly effect on my waterlilies, I rubbed Memento Golden Glitz Delicata Ink around the edges of my flowers after I cut them out.  Then I sprayed them with Spray and Sparkle Gold Varnish.  


Thank you for so stopping by and participating in the A Little Bit Oriental Blog Hop.  Below is a list of the designers' blogs who will be sharing projects today.  You have until Monday Sept 30th at 9pm (ET) to leave a comment.  The winner's name will be posted on the Crafter's Companion Blog after the blog hop ends.  Good luck!

I think waterlillies are considered a pest but I always thought they were very pretty spread out over the water. Love the colors on your card.
