Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Oriental

It's Tracie's turn to choose the theme of this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she has chosen:


I've used one of the Secret Crafter's own Manga stamps...'Samurai Boy' (available as both a clear polymer stamp, and as a digital download). The papers are from the 'Far East' stack by DCWV, and I used my Cuttlebug 'Forest Branches' folder to emboss the middle panel....I though it sort of looked like bamboo! lol 
I inked around all of the edges using chalk inkpads, and added a sentiment using a stamp from the CCSR set by Papermania.

I'm also going to enter this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration, please visit the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge to see the fabulous samples by my lovely DT buddies.
