Ode to Sushi

April 30th 2011


Here is my "Sushi Shrine" made for the latest Colour Challenge at Gingersnap Creations - RED & GOLD.
I have made a shrine card dedicated to Sushi (which incidentally I love!!).

I made the background myself using gold and red paint and dragging it across the cardboard with a credit card. To add a little bit more gold definition I also 'dropped' blobs of gold paint onto the background. I then printed a "definition" of Sushi on the left hand side and a little saying "that's how I roll" on the right hand side. I then used a Shrine Template from Mirkwood Designs to cut the shape. And after cutting out the shape I sponged the edges with gold paint and stamped all over the shrine card with a little asian text stamp I have - to give it an more 'Asian Flavour"!



This picture shows the little Japanese sticker of a little cooking pot which I thought suited the theme of my shrine as well.










The "sushi" woman is a great little digi stamp from Karber Digital Images which I couldn't resist using on this project as I still wanted the project to be FUN! She has been paper pieced using my wonderful 'stash' of Japanese papers. Her face and hair and the sushi rolls and tray were coloured with Copics. To add more gold to this I also used Kindyglitz for her 'obi' (sash) and the 'sticks' in her hair and she has been attached to the shrine with mounting tape.





Here is the complete card which I am really happy with! I've really enjoyed the "Asian Theme" that Gingersnap Creations have had this month!


I have also entered "Ode to Sushi" at the Allsorts Challenge Blog as they have an Oriental Theme this week! And Wee Memories have a paper piecing challenge!
