I inked the Paisley BG w/ Pretty in Pink and Blush Blossom, then misted it to give it that painted silk look. I looked up the Kanji word for "Believe" and painted it on the mulberry using an Aquapainter and reinker. The Eyelet charm also says Believe

What a wonderful card, I would never of thought of painting or stamping on to mulberry paper, I somehow assumed it would smudge into a big black mark and ruin the paper, I love the way everyone here just has the confidence and enjoyment to give anything a go! Thanks for showing me all these interesting things.
