Robyn's Fetish - Weekly Challenge #18

Hi Everyone!!!

Welcome to another AWESOME week of our Robyn's Fetish Challenge!!! This week's challenge is to create a project incorporating an Asian Flair into your piece.

This week I chose an image of Pansies that I've had from Robyn for a while. I haven't created with it until now! It's like the image was waiting for JUST the right creation to come along!

My card base is in Black MS cardstock, layered next with light pink also MS cardstock and then the Cherry Blossom paper is from The Paper Source that I purchased a couple of years ago.

I tied that all together with black twill tape in a bow with a small piece of gold cording tied in a knot around the bow.
My image is colored with Copics and layered first on the same light pink MS cardstock, then on Basic Grey - Scarlet Letter paper, and then on more MS black cardstock. I corner rounded the top left corner for visual interest and softness.

I added red and pink buttons threaded with The Paper Source 4-Ply Linen twine and adhered with tiny glue dots.


The Chinese symbol for Love adorns the bottom right hand corner. Inked in black craft ink and heat set on light pink cardstock backed with a black scallop punch.
The inside has the matching pink cardstock and the symbol stamped again 3 times in Rocket Red Brilliance Ink and heat set. I also added a strip of the black twill tape along the bottom.


I hope you've enjoyed my creation!! And I do hope that you are inspired to play along this week!!!

We'll have the post up on Saturday with the Mr. Linky link so that you can easily add your creations over here!!!
