Supplies Used: Stamps - Asian Artistry. Ink: StazOn, River Rock. Accessories: Rub On sentiment, brayer, daubers.
I was browsing around for some ideas to use this new Hostess Set from SU called Asian Artistry and found a card in the SCS gallery that I liked. I went to the artist's blog and oh my goodness...I couldn't look away!! I just loved what she did with the set and the brayer techniques she was sharing. So these cards are total cases, right down to the color schemes (almost!) and the white highlighting detail. Please check out Sandi McIver's blog to see her fabulous work -- and why I cased her cards!! Thanks for stopping by!

I love this, Anne!! There were so many of the Level 2 sets I wanted, it was hard to decide. I may have to buy a ton of stuff now to qualify for more, hehehe.
Love what you've done with these cards, it is such a clean elegant style, perfect for the Asian themed design.
