Aloha everyone, it was a good day for doing a card just for fun! It's been quite a while since I was able to do that. I decided to get some inspiration by joining a challenge. This was really a FUN one! It's being hosted by Crafty Ann's over at Crafter's Digital Art Center, such a GREAT site, and it's free to join! It's always full of super info and ideas. The theme was to use the free digi stamp, which are these adorable lanterns (you know how I love things with an Asian flare!), and the colors of purple, lilac and pink. I sponged the pink edges of my base card and also the background on which I used my own stamp of the tree branch. I printed the lanterns, colored them with my Copics, cut them out and raised them with pop-dots for depth. I added the fringes of thread and hung them onto my branch. The flowered paper is a beautiful piece that is Japanese rice paper I bought in Hilo ages ago. It has such a lovely texture and I really like the gold metallic mixed in. All the colors blended together very well! For a final touch I added the ribbon and hung the coin from the bow.
