Asian Theme & No Stamps

Good evening everyone !     Our Winter has been kind to us so far this year, as it's been milder than normal most days, but I've been fighting a head cold which is zapping my energy.     We've been experiencing changes in temperatures that range from minus 24C (with wind chill) to  plus 10C in 2 days.    

When I first started making cards I got hooked on Starform stickers (pre rubber stamps) so of coarse I have quite a stash of them, at least a 20-year supply !    I went through them this evening and pulled a sheet of this lady and decided to make a card with her.
I adhered the sticker lady to Velum paper and then turned her over on a foam pad.  Using a stylus I embossed some of the areas which turns it white.   I added some colour with Gelly Pens and then cut her out.     I popped her onto handmade paper and then layered with Asian theme designer paper and co-ordinating card stock.  Flowers along with co-ordinating corner and border stickers are the finishing touches.    Very easy card !

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !

A beautiful card Shirley, very oriental with the reds and the blossoms. You are right about CDs it does involve printing this is a good site to see some really great CDs make sure to see the gallery and the videos for samples.
