Chinese, Chalks, Chocolate & Copics - Outlawz Greetings Challenge

Image: Recollections "Kyoto"

The Challenge for the Greeting DT over at The Outlawz was to create a design that incorporated the First Letter of our Name.   I immediately thought of Chinese and Chalk.  Don't ask me why; must have been all that Passover wine. It doesn't really show up on the photo, but there is are Bamboo trees embossed in the white area of the card.  This card came together so easily.  I knew the components, but deciding on how they would be used in the card took a long time.

I used liquid pearls for the flower centers and aso for the ball on her hair pin. The umbrella handle is a toothpick.  The paper umbrella is a flattened cup cake baking cup.  The marjority of the coloring was done with chalks.  Copics were used only to color the folowers and the inside of her sleeve.  The flowers are Prima.  Foliage is Memory Box and the ribbon is from Clear Dollar Stamps.  Embossing Folders used:  Cuttlebug Oriental Weave Bundle.  Used the Weave,  Pagoda Squares and  Bamboo folders.



I'll be on the lookout for your name!
