Gingerloft - Asian Inspiration 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. 

Gingerloft challenge
For my DT Card I've used the Dragonfly Bamboo image, which I find very peaceful. I've coloured it with Promarkers and inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink. The Dragonfly is coloured with Sakura glitter gel pens. The Paper is by Basic Grey and I've used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges. The branch with leaves is a die by Sizzix which has been spritzed with Glimmer Mist, and the sentiment is a stamp by Personal Impressions. The gold pearls and ribbon are from stash.
The next stop on this hop is Gale - go check out her gorgeous inspiration!
Thanks for stopping and hopping!!
