Speedy Fox & Friends - Oriental

Happy Saturday!!!  It's been a busy week here with the culmination of tomorrow night's Sleeping Beauty ballet that our daughter is dancing in.  The week leading up to the ballet is always a bit crazy around here.  We had extra excitement of having to do a special hair braid bun and this mom is lousy with hair so there was quite a bit of extra hours hair practice!!!  We managed but oh my!!!  

Despite running here and there, practicing with hair and enjoying family time during this week of staycation, I squeezed in time to play with a new MFP set for this week's  Speedy Fox & Friends challenge which is to create an oriental card.  The image I used is a sneak peek from "FLOWER BLOCKS" being released next week.  

I started off by using the direct to paper technique but wasn't satisfied with the look so I spritzed the layer with water.  When the paper dried I stamped the flower block with Versafine Onyx Black. I love the rich color I achieved with this technique!

You can find all the details on the challenge and see fabulous inspiration from the DT at Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge!

In parting I will leave you with a photo of my ballerina!
