I made this for this week's Dare Challenge issued by Anne akak JDMommy. She wanted us to use the Olympics as an inspiration.. Boy, oh boy, was this hard. I don't have any sort of oriental type stamps with the exception of my embrace life set. So, I decided to use it along with the new in-colors to make this Oriental-themed card. I used the Japanese stab-binding technique to add the chopsticks.. I think tonight we will order some Chinese takeout and watch the opening ceremony.

Additional Info
Stamps: embrace life
Paper: basic black, pacific point, kiwi kiss, coldpressed watercolor
Ink: kiwi kiss, pacific point, tangerine tango, black craft
Accessories: jewel brads, clear ep, chop sticks, ribbon

Can't you just hear her now..."Well, I think the Kiwi Kiss is the best. And have you seen the new designer series papers!..."..needed a birthday card and had fun using the new colors with my aquapainter.. thanks for looking!

Inside reads:

Growing old can be fun if you do it with the right people!

These are gorgeous. Love the chopsticks one. I think I should do this challenge, since I have an idea.
What is the aquapainter? Is that the little pen looking thing I sent you. I can't seem to find the rest of them. Gosh I need to cleanup and get some Alzhiemers medicine or something :-)
