One More Card with Far East Stamps

This is another card made with the Far East stamp set (HOTP).  To me, it doesn't really have any Oriental flavor to it, despite the use of that stamp set.  The focal was stamped in black on a white piece of cardstock and then colored using my Aqua Painter and distress ink to match the patterned paper (Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick).  When it was dry, I used a corner rounder punch on the corners and stamped the sentiment.

The patterned paper is another one I made with the wax resist technique described here. I framed my patterned paper piece with a glimmer paper frame I made by cutting the outside dimensions to fit the card with a narrow border, then cutting and embossing the inside of it with the largest of a new to me die set - Decorative Labels Eight (Spellbinders). I saved the inside die cut piece for another project.

Using the 2nd largest die in the same set, I cut and embossed another glimmer piece to serve as mat for my focal.  After gluing the focal to the mat, I attached it to the card with foam tape for added dimension.
