Inspired by Oriental


I know red and black is much over used when it comes to things Oriental, and much as I like the greens, blues and golds also associated with it, the red/black combo I am still drawn towards, mainly because I think they're striking together.

We were given a sketch this week as a background template on 'Tag You're It' and here is my tag.

The oriental images are printed on a transparency and mounted onto white card hence the pic isn't as sharp as in real life!

(By the way, one of my bloggin 'sisters', Kristen has a draw going on for some Basic Grey papers and other must-have stuff. Draw will be done on Valentine's Day, so why don't you pay her fab blog a visit!)
