ATCAS #47 - Oriental

Hi there!

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Addicted to CAS. Sylvia is your hostess this week and she has chosen a really cool code word for us this fortnight.

Here is my DT card -

A few weeks ago I won a challenge and received a prize from A Day for Daisies. I thought this 'Green Lady' image was beautiful. Out came my Spectrum Noir markers and I went to town.
The sentiment is from STAMPlorations and from the Trendy Feathers set.

Here are the markers that I have used on this image -

Hair - IG1, IG3, IG6, IG8, IG10
Skin - FS3, FS4, FS9, CR3, CR5
Dress (red) - DR1, DR2, DR4, DR6
Dress (blue) - TB3, TB4, TB5
Flowers - DRI, DR4, DR7
Hair ornaments - GB4

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Spectrum Noir - Friendship
Fan-tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes
Clear it out Challenge - Anything Goes

I made a second card for this challenge today and for this one I used the sketch from Happy Little Stampers.

The cherry blossom is from Lavinia Stamps. I embossed it with white powder and then sponged Distress Inks over the top (Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar). The sentiment is from STAMPlorations and from the Trendy Feathers set. I moved my pearls to the left hand side to symbolise the stars in the sketch. I did this mainly due to an inky boo boo ;)
