Blue Asia

Another oriental-inspired card, this time probably a little bit unusual, because my imagination of Orient are warm and bright colours.
I decided to try the opposite with an image I found on the internet quite a while ago (therefore without image source). I printed it twice and used one print as the main motif, and the other one to cut out flowers and create a 3D effect on the card. Then, I decorated the blossoms with tiny silver stickers and even tinier sticker-leftovers. As it was still too much blue, I added a silver border to the image. 
To complete the card, I stitched a pattern in matching blue and green shades, which I decorated with a couple of rhinestones. As I stitched directly on the white cardboard of the card, I covoered up the interior part with an embossed blue paper (not pictured).

  11. Beautiful card! I love the image and how you have added the layer of flowers- lots of fussy cutting, but it is wonderful!

  12. Oh wow, I am completely in awe of your stitching talents! After seeing the first picture I was going to say how much I love the elegant die-cut then scrolled down to see that it was your stitching! It looks absolutely stunning and is perfect with this beautiful image. Such gorgeous colours too.
