Pasted Delusions

 I had a little creative time today- I made a background using Pasted Delusions- from the latest Technique Junkies newsletter.

  I made a couple of backgrounds before I hit the road- and have to say- they are fabulous IRL- the color is so vibrant and the embossing paste is so fab! (Wendy Vecchi embossing paste : ) )
  I used Postcard Geisha Image 2 HERE from Taylored Expressions from Art Neko/About Art Accents and colored it with Copic markers. The sentiment and dragonflies are by SU (Asian Artistry). I added some Smoosh to the top of the dragonfly and the Flourish diecut from Sweet Stamps.

Challenges-
Sister Act- Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps and More- Coloring
Crafting with Dragonflies- Nature/Trees/Leaves- stencil BG bamboo trees
Try it on Tuesday- Textures

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful Shelly - I love the rich colours and the gently Asia feeling you have achieved with this card. The fine white diecut is a great accent.
