Good morning blogland ladies and gents (I know there are a few of you out there) I have been busy with other thing over the past three weeks but can now pick up where I left off with my crafting.. It was the Chinese New Year yesterday and the challenge at the Artful Times Challenge Blog is "Asian", the challenge is about to close so I have to be quick.
As time is short I chose to make an ATC, I rummaged through my stash and found some lovely Japanese papers, Chinese coins, tassells and other oriental bits and pieces, all bought years ago from The Stamp Man. The stamp was from the Non-Sequitur - Samurai plate (67C).
I started by attaching the black and gold paper to an ACT, layered black card and a gold aperture stamped with a marble effect stamp from the Judikins Artifacts Cube and glued it to the ATC. I stamped part of the Geisha stamp onto an ivory plastic disc with black Stazon, clear embossed it and attached it in the aperture. Some of the little bits of paper were used to make three paper beads which I threaded onto a tassel which was fastened through a small Chinese coin, this was attached to the edge of the aperture.
ATCs are so addictive I couldn't resist making another, glossy card brayered with Brilliance pigment ink in peacock and the butterflies overstamped in black Stazon, a butterfly attached in 3D to finish.
Hay Fat Choy to you all.
