Vase of Chinese Lanterns

Happy Saturday!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge which has a fabulous palette of orange, turquoise, green and kraft.

A few weeks ago Simon Says Stamp released a new Chinese Lantern die, with inspiration from lots of designers, in particular the super talented Cindy. As a result, I was itching to play with a Poppystamps Chinese Lantern die that I bought about 5 years ago. I haven’t used it for a while, which is a shame because I love Chinese lanterns. Anyway, for my card, I coloured it with distress inks and added vellum (coloured with distress ink and pencil) behind each individual lantern. My blended background is a bit darker in real life – it’s a mix of Tumbled Glass and Broken China inks. The vase is by Waffle Flower Crafts and the sentiment is by Altenew.

Thanks for stopping by!
