Using a set of stamps by Hero arts that I fell in love with the other day. Isn't she a cutie. I don't usually do Oriental, but I just love this set. Anyway onto the 3 challenges and DT call I made this card for.
The 1st challenge is over at Daring Cardmakers where they want to see lots of bling and glitz. There are a few gems on here, but most of my glitz is in the paper and card I've used. At Paper Blooms they would like us to use a "hidden sentiment". I've gone out the box with this as my sentiment is in the Oriental writing. On the sheet the stamps came on, it says the banner translates to "Thank you". I apologise if this is incorrect, but I can only go with what's on the packet. So my sentiment is hidden in the banner. Number 3 challenge is over at Pile it On where they would like us to use more that 3 flowers and , as usual as many challenges as possible. I've used 6 flowers, another 2 challenges and a DT call.
Bizzy Bec's Creatalicious Challenge DT. All you have to do is make a card or creation using this sketch, post it on your blog and then put it on Mr Linky with your post on Bec's Challenge blog.
The image is Hero art from a clear stamp set called "Chinese Dolls". She's heat embossed and then coloured using glittery Sakura pens in red and gold. I've deco'd the middle of her tunic for a bit of depth. The coin and banner are also from the set. I heat emboss the banner twice. Once with gold onto black card and then in black onto red card. The middle is cut out and deco'd. I then rolled both ends round coktail sticks and added some gold brade.
The flowers are all hand punched with co ordinating brads for the middles.
The card and paper are all bits that I had lurking in my overflowing bit box. The gems, buttons, brads and brade are all from my stash.
Wish me luck and please call by again sometime soon. Please feel free to leave a comment.
