So for my piece I've gone a little bit oriental and used Sheena Douglass's Oriental Lanterns stamps. Started off by creating my background by blending Peacock Feathers, Wild Honey and Pumice Stone Distress Inks, spot of faux bleaching, some background stamping with stamps from the Ageing Beautifully set and leaves from the Lanterns set.
Then I stamped some of the smaller lanterns directly onto the background and coloured with wild honey distress ink.
Then stamped the three larger lanterns onto some card coloured with Wild Honey and embossed them with gold embossing powder.
They looked very 'flat' though so added some shading with Rusty Hinge and Pumice Stone Distress Ink and then covered the whole lantern with embossing ink and embossed with clear powder.
Then it was just a case of assembling it all and adding a greeting from the 'From the Heart' words set.
