A couple of months ago I bought a fan die for my Big Shot. Ever since then, I've been wanting to do an Asian inspired card. Then, I found this fabulous image over at Tiddly Inks named Chi, which I thought was absolutely perfect for that style. Lastly, I got some Asian style outline stickers at last weekend's Rubber Stamp and Scrapbooking Expo....and I was set!
The image on the front of the card is the Chi image, colored with Copics. This is the first time I've really tried highlighting with black hair, and I'm really happy with out it turned out! (I used C0, C2 and 100.) I know a lot of people don't like to use greys for the highlights...but I like the result. =D The coins and fan outlines are the stickers, and the inside of the fans were colored with Souffle pens. The Chinese characters on the inside of the card are from Designed 2 Delight and mean happiness. I wrote "happiness" underneath so anyone who picks up the card will immediately know what it means. I used origami paper for the fan. (Thanks for the idea, Stef!!)
I am just stoked at how this turned out....but I still have a ton of embellishments that I planned on using but just didn't fit with this card. So, don't be surprised if you see a few more of this style over the next couple of months!
No challenges for this one. I just had this card stuck in my head and had to get it out on paper. Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
