Fashionable Stamping Challenges at the moment is Oriental and as I haven't made anything
Oriental for a long while I decided to dig out some stamps and see what I could do. The image of the Japanese ladies is a wood mounted stamp by Just For Fun, which I stamped with black Archival ink and cut out close to the image and mounted onto gold mirri card. I covered the front of a square card with a piece of oriental style paper. I stamped the Acer branch (Lavinia Stamps) with Versamark ink onto black card and embossed with clear EP. I cut a panel from this and stuck it to the right side of the card overlapping the patterned paper and inserting a strip of gold card to leave a thin border between.Next I stamped the Acer again onto red card and embossed with gold EP. I cut this to fit across the card and again mounted it onto gold mirri card. I fixed the main image to this panel and added the little fan charm which was silver, so I used gold EP to make it the right colour, and tied some red and gold embroidery threads to make a tassel.The greeting was printed on the computer using an oriental style font.
I am also entering this at Make It Monday where as always Anything Goes.
