A Touch of the Orient

Today I wanted to 'play' with a wonderful stamp by Onyx Xpressions sent to me by my dear friend, Vicky Gould. This scene reminds me so much of a photograph I took when I was in Japan many years ago. The picture was taken on the sacred island of Miyajima and looked just like this, looking back at the main island of Honshu. Just to the left of this you would see the famous temple gates in the water. So, this stamp truly 'speaks' to me!
I wanted to use mostly paper to frame this image. I didn't want to clutter it up with embellishments. I used a wonderful punch by Anna Griffin and a few brads, and I Cuttlebugged two of the layers. The designer paper used is by Papertrey in their most marvelous (to me) pad of black and white printed papers.
Thanks for stopping in. Wishing you a wonderful Sunday. We are a bit warmer here today, so for that I am most thankful.
