It's time for the next challenge over at The Fashionable Stamping Challenge and this time we're going oriental ! Make sure you hop over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work.
This challenge couldn't have come at a better time for me as my sister had just asked me to make a good luck card for a colleague who is going to work in Beijing. The stamps I've used are Non-sequitor stamps from The Stamp Man. I've blended DI over the background and used the spritz and flick technique, then randomly stamped the fan all over it. I've used the acrylic paint resist technique on the left hand panel. The main image has been stamped onto Speciality Stamping Paper, images do look alot crisper on this paper.
I've made the flower from lots of stamped fans, that have been stamped onto card that's had DI blended over it, then stuck together and shaped into the flower. I stamped the main image with white Brilliance ink onto black shrink plastic, this was more of an experiment really but worked really well ! The banner is printed on my PC.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
