CNY - happy new year, a photo by eatzycath on Flickr
another Chinese New Year card - design was based on the sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #151 - Love Plaid
- the flowers stamp is from Penny Black - Floral Silhouette - this was coloured using brush markers direct onto the stamp which was then misted over to create a water colour effect before stamping
- the 'happy new year' stamp is from Paper Smooches - Christmas Sampler, stamped and embossed in gold powder

a 'close-up' snapshot of the colored flowers - love working with the brushmarkers using this technique and seeing the colors merge and blend beautifully
