Some Oriental inspiration - cards , handmade book

Received these in 2005 , all from one or 2 card swaps for oriental inspired cards .
from Jeane , Australia

This is a precious handmade book , came with a self explaining card
"A mini shikishi of hand-painted bamboo in the traditional style ornaments the cover of this simple deco. The pages are dyed with green tea. Lightly stmaped with watermark images, and bound with vintage-look fibers. "

Wow, aren't these lovely - almost makes me want to go and buy some Oriental style stamps - but not being a stamper I'd probably only be disappointed at the resultss and the nly thing I'd make is is a mess!
Thanks for the inspiration Pearl - lots to think about there.
