Asian Inspiration

asian fusion

I created this card using the Sketch Challenge at Inspirational Card
Sketches. It's ICSketches #11.

The ingredients are from the Sketches! by tamara Recipe Challenge
#43. Which is to create a card or layout using the following items:
  • Stitching = Prism Skein
  • Brads = red flower brads
  • Cut out flower from Patterned Paper = Quickutz Nesting Flowers
I like how it turned out. Plus, I got to use 2 acrylic stamp sets that I
really like a lot. Also from this pic you can see that I made the face
more 3D.

Plus, I get to create something very Asian. Which is something that
my mom uses in decorating her home. Not to mention cuisine. Hey
what can I say we're Asian. My mom & Step-dad are Filipino. I'm
half but most Americans don't recognize it. DH did that's part of why
he liked me. Other Filipinos can tell though, I say it's the nose.

Him & his youngest sis like a little Asian Fusion in their marriage.
They both married half Asian people. Everyone else married Anglos.
(DH is the baby of 6.)

Stamps: Hero Arts - Four Dolls, Amuse Artistamps
Paper: CM Cardstock White, Black, Cranberry

Ink: VersaColor 82 Black, Copic E00 Skin White, W2 Warm Gray, R35 Coral, RV13 Tender Pink, SU! Classic Chocolate Chip, Marvy Brush Marker No. 48 Leaf Green
