I don't know about you guys but I've never seen a Chinese Lantern plant in person, ever!! I Googled it just to see how they look in real life, they are so beautiful and the image on Marcella Howley's Happy Harvest stamp set from Power Poppy is just as beautiful as the real plant.
I stamped this image onto a piece of Strathmore 90lb. water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder then, colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter.
I love how the branch of bittersweet berries intertwine with the lovely husks of the Chinese Lantern.
The pattern paper is from a discontinued line from Lili of the Valley, the ribbon from my stash, I don't seem to make a dent in it, sheeesh!!
Here is a picture of the finish inside of my card.
The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Perfectly Penned" and it's stamped with Tangelo Twist ink from SU.
Here is the sketch that inspired my card.
And the Power Poppy banner.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
