In February I attended a wedding that was held to coincide with Chinese New Year.

I decided to go with the theme, and use some of my asian papers.  I did a similar design for friends a number of years ago, but haven’t used it since (and that time I used my Luck Dragon stamp also)

Double Happiness

‘Double Happiness’ (Hero Arts) stampped on cream cardstock, edged in dark red ink.  Layered onto gold paper.  Base cream cardstock edged in dark red, and then layered with gold paper and red yuzen-shi paper.  Stamped image layered on top, and cream flower with cream pearl added to the top left corner.

It is a simple design, because I wanted the complexity of the hand screen-printed papers to be the main feature.  I liked the over all effect, and I used a lot of red and gold because they are culturally considered good for a wedding.
