A 4 in 1 challenge!!

Back again,
This time I have followed the Sketch over at Sketch Saturday, as shown below.

Then I decided that I would follow the challenge over at Artful Inkables whose challenge was to use the colours Red, Black and White.
I used a black and white printed card for the backing card which came from a pack with an oriental theme bought at Readicut online. The second paper (from the same pack) I trimmed with a Fiskars border punch to give the scalloped edge. The piece of red card was from my card stock (I think I bought this from Readicut too). Then I added ribbon with Chinese writing on to either side of the red card - I've had this for a while but bought it from Crafty Ribbons. Then for the image I used several of Barbara's stamps at Clarity. The "stamp" images come as blank and then by masking off each image you can then put a different image into the actual stamp (sounds like gobbledegook but should be self explanatory). I used stamps with a Chinese theme so I think this meets the challenge at A Spoonful Of Sugar which is Travel. I then masked off all the images and sponged some red colour as a background.

(I've taken a close up so that you can see the images within the stamps a little better). I added three little flowers with buttons in the middle so I'm also entering this one for the challenge over at ABC which was to use buttons. Finally I added the sentiment which was from a pack of die cut sentiments again from Readicut.
Hope you like it!
