Oriental


The keen eyed amongst you will have spotted the dolls and flowers coloured in and on my desk a few weeks ago. I saw the challenge for something oriental at One stop crafts challenge and knew these would be just the thing. I also have a pack of these trifold cards, which I have never used because they are so ornate, I worried what I could add to them! As you can see once I started it was easy and hopefully I haven't gone OTT.  The image is a digital one of a Kokeshi doll group designed by Sylvie Stamps which you can buy from here.
