Asian Inspiration - It's a Blog Hop

Welcome to the first Gingerloft Blog hop titled Asian Inspiration.

Gingerloft has added many asian images for you to see and they are now available at the gingerloft website. The DT has worked hard to bring you inspiration for using these images. If you have found this blog hop by accident please go to the Gingerloft challenge website and start from there. There are many prizes to be had so keep hopping. There are also some freebie images at the Gingerloft challenge website so that you can play along with our asian inspired challenge. If you get lost here is a list of the blog hop participants.

Gale - Thats Me!

What are you waiting for?  Get Hopping!  LOL
I used the GingerLoft digi stamp 'Koi' in severa sizes and flipped.  I also colored and cut out the dragonfly from the GingerLoft stamp 'Dragonfly and Bamboo'.
The card itself was cut out on my cricut using 'Life's a Beach'.  Copics were used to color everything.  The dragonfly is covered in glossy accents before being cut out.  The gold fish were sprayed with  Smooch Spritz in Vanilla Shimmer before being cut out.  (Wish you could see all the sparkle on this card!)
The window have a sheet of velum mounted to the inside and a piece of DP from DCWV photo stack behind that.  It is a beautiful picture of water and shows through the vellum.  It really is beautiful IRL!
There is faux stitching with a Gelly roll 'clear star' glitter pen and a piece of fancy ribbon from my stash tied around the top.
That's all for me.  Remember to visit all the other blogs, check out their eye candy, leave some love and finish up back at GingerLoft Challenges!
