Monica set us the challenge to make something oriental. We have two sponsors at Quirky Crafts and they both have great oriental characters and sayings.
My first card is made with Mewshu Pork cat from Squigglefly, with Chinese thank you also from Squigglefly. I coloured them both with Promarkers and a gold Spica pen, and fussy cut them before sitting the cat on top of the sentiment box. The papers are a Make Me pack of Han-Ji papers of two designs. I added a doubled tassled cord to finish. When I tried to tie on the cord I found I had stuck the cat and sentiment on totally the wrong way round so had to cut the panel out again and mount it on another card blank, so easily done!
This little cat slurped his way into the following challenges:
My next card features Lucy Loo Bookaholic by Unky from The East Wind. She has such beautiful hair, and it is so so long (and full of wildlife)! I coloured her with Promarkers and die cut her with Spellbinders long rectangles. The papers and embellishments are by Papermania, and the ribbon is Crafty Ribbons. Normally I would keep the two sponsors apart but the Chinese proverb about a A book is Like a Garden.. from Squigglefly, which I cut out with a Spellbinders book die, was so perfect for this image - I hope I am forgiven!
Lucy Loo has read her way into the following challenges:
Charisma cards - anything goes (23rd July)
Open Minded Crafting Fun - vacation related (I always read lots on vacation) (Aug 9th)
I am thrilled that Pam picked me as her favourite, it means more to me than to be randomly picked for a prize!
