This is my card for Denise's Stamping Vacation sketch challenge and Daring Cardmaker's Oriental Splendour theme challenge. Notice the spelling of splendor. The team from this site is from the UK, NZ and Australia.
I thought the sketch and theme would work nicely together.
You'll notice that the 2 pictures of the cat are different colors. The original clip art picture, Printmaster, has the cat in black. For the Daring Cardmakers challenge we couldn't use black or red in our cards. So, I altered the color to brown. Purple legs and shadow were an extra little bonus. I couldn't do anything but think that it enhanced the image. You have to be adaptable. I stamped oriental characters on a piece of scrap paper with Burnt Sienna Color Box Liquid Chalk. The background paper is Autumn Leaves in aqua distressed with a little of the burnt sienna. I also used brown and bronze metallic card stock. The embellishment is an aqua wooden bead.
