I was not too happy when I saw this weeks Fashionable Stamping challenge theme as its not something I have done much of and I don't have anything much in suitable stamps , however I had an idea that I had some stamped images tucked away in an old file so dug it out and found the lovely Japanese lady in there and also the piece of gold on gold embossed card, I did them ages ago(years actually!) at a class and they were part of something to make a book which never got put together. The blossom paper,chop and the sentiment are Debbi Moore stamps that came free with a magazine. I have no idea where the fan stamp came from ,I've had it a long time. I'm always a bit dubious about using anything with Japanese or Chinese writing on as I would really like to know what they say ! May have another go at this challenge later on as I'm not over the moon with this one.


  1. Hello Joan
    I really don't know what you dislike about this piece Joan, you have the classic oriental Red palette that runs through your card and connects beautifully with the Gold embossed Bg, your fan is delightful, it has great composition and form, it is pleasing to the eye and unique, a lovely card.

  2. I agree with Sue, its a beautiful card Joan. Annette, x

  4. Hi Joan, just catching up, its a shame you hadn't linked this one up, its a lovely card.
    Have been so busy lately I only managed DT comments, or I might have picked this up.
