Anything Asian at CD Sundays

I'm very excited because today it's my first turn to choose the challenge at CD Sundays,  and I've chosen one of my favourite themes, "Anything Asian". I know Asian designs come in and out of fashion and you  may need to dust off one of your older CDs this time - but it's always fun to revisit long-neglected stash!

Don't forget that Asia is a very big continent, encompassing not just China and Japan but India, Thailand and part of the Middle East (as well as lots of other countries that don't seem to inspire as much craft stash!). But I've gone for an image that reminds me of the years I loved in Hong Kong,  this beautiful crane image and papers from Joanna Sheen's old CD "Oriental Dreams".


Because I was using a fairly old CD, I decided to use a fairly old fashioned style too, inspired by some of the designs that used to be created on QVC in the days when they sold Kameo Cards kits. I really enjoyed making this, looking through all the old images and digging out my old, almost-finished sheets of peel offs.

I used the same CD Jane but a different BP. I love the colours in your card and how you've pulled it all together.

I think the crane is a beautiful elegant bird, and love what you've done with the topper.

Beautiful card, I love your image, and your style maybe as you say old fashion but it's still a good style
