My Time To Craft 'Oriental' Challenge

Good morning, I hope you are all well.

It is time for a new challenge over at My Time To Craft and this week we are going all 'Oriental' one of my least favourite subjects to craft to. I had nothing to fit this challenge so off I went to my local craft store which is run by Mark & Jo Channon (Jo is from Create & Craft for those of you that watch it) and at first Jo was as blank as me until we went rummaging around the store. I decided on the Tattered Lace Die called Oriental Birdcage and those coins you see in the photo. 

I cut the die in white card stock and then painted it in Rich Gold Cosmic Shimmer and did the same to my card stock to get the perfect colour match. I found the script on the fan on Google and just cut, folded and inked to get to look the way it does. For my background I cut a bamboo stencil on my Silhouette Cameo and then inked it with Bundled Sage, Old Paper & Frayed Burlap Distress Inks masking off sections until it was all completed and although it took some time to do it this way I like the effect it gave. The sentiment was also found on Google and a little bit of twine to carry my coins and it was done.
All items used linked below photo.
