Kuching

Back in May DH's parents came to stay, and we all went to Kuching, in Borneo Malaysia for a week. The evening view from our hotel window was absolutely spectacular, and we took far too many photos of the sun setting over the Serapi mountains, silhouetting the new State Parliament building being constructed across the Sarawak River.

This one had been sitting waiting for me to scrap somehow, but I couldn't think of a way to do it that wouldn't swamp it or wash it out. Then I spotted these navy and copper papers from SEI (Moravia) and Basic Grey (Marrakech) and fell head-over-heels in love.

Last week over on Scrap Whispers, Georgina set a great challenge to scrap-lift this very pretty sketch, with Nilsa's extra proviso of using flowers, lace and distressing. Problem solved!


With the addition of some lace from my stash, the most beautiful copper ribbon, Thickers lettering and some inked Prima flowers, the photo became art. I love it.

This is so beautiful! I love the papers and the colours compliment the photos so well! I always have trouble finding the right papers for shots like that. Thanks for the inspiration! x

Absolutely stunning Rosey.
That is one stunningly beautiful photograph - I can't stop looking at it, wishing I were there.
Thanks for the link to that beautiful Macaron (spelt right?) punch. It's out of stock. There was another I liked but the postage was just unbelievably high
(boo-hoo).
