Hi, it's Susan again!!!
I couldn't resist making this card!
I love working from sketches, and this one looked so good with all those layers, it made me think Asian straight away, and then I found a challenge or two to go with it.
My backing papers were all from our stash. I used a ridged card for the main backing as I wanted some texture next to the shiny black and the silver mirri.
The ribbon is from our local market. I used a punch to make the silver strip.
This darling little image is one of many that 'Sliekje' gives away free on her blogsite, this little image is called Japans - meisje. She has the most beautiful collection of digi stamps each one is adorable.
I coloured it in using chalks, then inked the background slightly to age it.
The flowers are my own handmade flowers using a five petal punch, the centre brads we have had in our stash for ages they are silk covered.
The satin ribbon is from our local market.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
