I'm back today with news of our next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz - a challenge blog designed specifically for the men in our life.
We have a brand new theme and this week Jane chose 'ORIENTAL'. Now this one made me think - I don't have a lot of oriental stuff, it's not a genre I'm particularly keen on, but here's what I came up with for my DT inspiration ...
It's quite clean and simple in design and the bamboo image is from the internet. I began by printing the image and sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock.
I then cut a circle using one of my nesties and inked it with Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade distress inks to make it look like a big old sun. I printed the bamboo image again onto a piece of copier paper, then carefully positioned my sun over the image and secured it with a tiny amount of adhesive. I passed it through my printed once more and the image is then printed onto the sun!
I added the circle back to my original printed card, taking care to line up the image before gluing in place. I finished off with a piece of black twine which is passed through an oriental coin for embellishment.
So, I hope you will join us with your own oriental designs this week.
Hugz, Jan xx
