Some Oriental Today.....

Another of those so much to do, so little time weeks.....you know how sometimes you just have to have an egg roll or some shrimp egg foo young?  mmmm, sounds good right, so today is my way of filling up without the extra #'s, lol. 

Over at Fun with ATC's, the challenge is Oriental.  I'm trying a tech I saw at CHA for the first time, it's really quite artsy and as soon as I find the link, I'll share with you all. 
Again this challenge.... I've made the ATC into a full card and am entering it in the Gingersnap Orange, Yellow and Red color challenge and the new Simon Says blog, for Things with Wings.


Way cool stamp by Invoke Arts.  The embossed background is a combo tech from the TJNL.  I took the Core'dinations tech, sanded it and smooshed it into some distress ink on my craft sheet, using the Watercolor Distress tech.
