I'm still going through my existing pictures of Oriental cards made in the past few years, I'll start to make new creations over the weekend.
I liked making this card as I use the whit raffia to create a semi-wheel of some sort. I used four stamps for the coin, the background, the bird and the highlighted foreground.
I chalked the dark cardstock and stamped twice first in white and then in black. I like how it make the chinese writing 'pop'.
I like the contrast between black & white.
