Zen Flower - Chris

Hi everyone, Chris here with a card and stamping with the Oriental Zen stamp set, I can't seem to put it down! In the central panel I cut a frame using square nestabilities which I first inked with versamark ink and brushed with perfect pearl powders then stamped with the seigaiha stamp in pink ink on top.

Under the frame I stamped the background piece using the negative peony stamp and versamark ink and again brushed with perfect pearl powers. I overstamped with the peony and the pink ink to give a shadowed effect.

Using the outline version of the Peony stamp and the seigaih in the pink ink I stamped around the edge of the card blank, added the die cut pieces (the corners are also stamped with the peony) and the flower inside the frame. I finished everything off with the pearl pen pearls and a little pink ink in the centre of  the flower.

Enjoy your day.
