This weeks challenge in the Oriental stamp art Yahoo group is Oriental brush painting. I did not have a chance to dig out my inks and paints but I had this cute brush style cat stamp from About Art Accents and I quickly made this card:

Stamp: About Art Accents, PAttern PAper: Nicecrane Designs, Clip Art: Lettering Delights, Charm: Around the block, EB folder: Cuttlebug

I had the rubber mouse charm FOREVER it came in a grab bag and I thought I would never use it but couldn’t part with it either so I am glad it has a home now;) The strips of luscious paper is from the Grunge Flowers collage sheet from Nicecrane Designs, I love this sheet, it has 9 beautiful swatches of paper that are ATC size but if you need them a bit larger you can crop the pattern you like and print it larger and it still looks pretty good!

The “fun” tag is from the Garden Meditation set from Lettering Delights, I print up sheets of the clip art at different sizes then cut them out as I need them, they are the perfect touch to ma Asian cards and they go well with the cards made with the PAgoda cricut cartridge because it came from the Lettering Delights font Asian Serenity, unfortunately they removed that font after the cartridge came out (I’m so glad I bought it before that!) They have lots of cut Asian style clipart perfect for cards that you don’t want to miss;)

In additon to the OSA challenge this card also qualifies for: CArdvarks (embossing), Crafty Ann (embossing), Creative Craft (stamping), Flourishes (embossing) and Tuesday Throwdown (dry embossing).

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
