Now! Oriental - I do love everything oriental, which is good because that is the theme this week over at CD Sunday Challenge. Here is my card - all about it afterwards;
The image & background paper came from Joanna Sheen's Oriental Dreams. I have mounted the image onto some blue pearlised card that went quite well with the ladies robe. Then I printed one of the background papers that went with the image it has repeats of the main image - this I also mounted onto the blue pearlised card. I could not find any blue ribbon that would do then remembered my Promarkers & a reel of white ribbon I had. Problem solved. I wrapped this around the background card then laid the image on 3-d tape over it. It needed just a little something else. A couple of years back I showed my club members how to make the Chinese knots with Mizuhiki cord. But did I have any blue & more importantly would I remember how to do it. Fortunately the answer to both questions was - yes. A closeup of the Mizuhiki knot ;
A really enjoyable card to make.
