Make sure you visit the Take a Word Blog to enter the new challenge "Oriental" great word for this week! I love Oriental style anything !
Here's my creation as a "volunteer" designer this week for Take a Word - a little Asian Style Shrine:
I've made my little shrine using instructions from the Bella Creations Oh La La Group ATC Shrine Tutorial. The front of the shrine was made using a laminate sample to drag various coloured paint across a piece of card. Then I stamped the card (once it was dry!!) with an Asian Text stamp and cut out the required shape. I've also added a little Asian hanging embellisment to the bottom of the shrine.
The "inside" of the shrine which is a matchbox has been covered with a Asian style napkin and 3 gold coins tied with red ribbon (for luck!) have been glued inside. I've attached little paper flowers (which I thought looked a bit like cherry blossom) with brads.
This gorgeous Geisha image is from CS Designs and has been coloured with copics, cut out from it's 'frame' and then I have put a layer of Dimensional magic over the image to give it a glossy look.
I'm really happy with how my shrine has come up!
