Oriental Cards – Nicole Doiron – Mood Board Inspiration

Hello Dusty FANattics!

It’s Nicole and I am happy to share with you today a set of 3 oriental-themed cards that were inspired by the Dusty Attic March mood board.

Here is the beautiful March mood board!

And now let’s take a closer look at each card.

Along with the mood board, my main inspiration for these cards  was the Bonsai Trees collection from The Dusty Attic.

I found some more chipboard in my stash with a similar oriental style  and decided to use papers from Graphic 45 to complete the effect.

The Fancy Frame #11 gave just seemed to be perfect.

On this second card, I used the Birdcage #2 covered embossed in golden yellow.

I added some Gingko Biloba pieces colored in red.

I thought that this card would be great for a special friend, so I used this very fitting expression from the Quoted Sentiments in black.

On the card below, I used another of the Bonsai Trees and the smaller Fancy Frame #11.

I decided to keep my cards fairly simple with no mixed media because sometimes that is just how my creative mind thinks.

I think I was able to interpret the feel and colour palette of the mood board simply but beautifully with these cards.

Here are the Dusty Attic chipboard that I used.
