Oriental - Hay Fat Choy to you all

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.

Your first ATC is so Chinese ! It's got great design and you've chosen your colours and embellishments so well. Thank you for your comment on my latest project as I am in dire need of encouragement due to this darn lack of mojo !

Sorry I am so late blame it on the jet lag please.
I love both of your ATC's, the top one is rich with the embossing and the gold on black with a hint of red is just perfect for this challenge. The bottom one, is so pretty and delicate, love the extra butterfly.
Thanks for joining us at Artful Times,
Hugs, Neet xx
