Hi, we're celebrating the start of the Year of the Rabbit over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog with a chinese New Year themed challenge. I love oriental themed cards so I've taken my inspiration for this weeks DT card from the oriental theme but you could interpret the challenge in different ways too so check out my teamies blogs for some fab ideas! Our sponsor this week is the lovely Joanna Sheen so don't miss out on the change of a fab prize!!
Apologies again for the dreadful pic, its really bleached the colours of this card unfortunately but I was trying to avoid too much reflection from the acetate. I've used black card for my base card and made the bp using oriental lily stamps from Joanna Sheen stamped and embossed on white card with black detail EP. Then swooshed in lots of tumbled glass distress ink spritzed with water on my craft mat and some pale blue glimmer mists for some shimmer.
The scene actually has a brayered background but its almost disappeared in the pic, the oriental lady stamp is from Clarity Stamps, the foliage stamps are from Autumn Leaves and the cute little rabbit is from CaroLines rubber stamps (from one of her gorgeous silhouette sets)
The curved acetate overlay is stamped with bamboo stamps from Joanna Sheen and embossed with black detail EP. I added some wide black satin ribbon from my stash and a paper flower I made ages ago.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
