Tara chose this card for A Cut Above Award!!
My granddaughter has a long standing interest in things Japanese or Oriental. While thinking about her the idea of creating an Asian/Oriental card came to mind. This card is for two challenges Our Creative Corner and the Paper Players. The challenge at OCC is to create a card using 'faces'. The challenge at The Paper Players uses this great sketch.
The stamps are from Hanko Design.
The "Xi Shi Lady" was stamped on white CS and colored with Copic markers. The lower skirt was stamped on DP paper 4 times, using one segment from each stamped image the skirt was fussy cut and paper pieced together. The trim on the bodice was also fussy cut. The cherry blossom branch was stamped, colored with Copics then, fussy cut and attached to the top of the card. A few extra blossoms were adhered to give the illusion of falling flowers (similar to the falling leaves in upstate NY).
The Dollar Store has some cute rhinestones to use on nails...well they were just the perfect size to embellish this lovely lady.
These were also used for floral earrings and the teardrop ring on her finger.
