Fan Of Hope
Today I am sharing a card I've had in my head for some time, but just never made until now due to my migraines and inspiration of a couple of challenges.
I started out by stamping the cherry blossom images from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company's set Asian Delights in memento tuxedo black onto a Stampendous die cut fan card before coloring them with koh-i-noor pencils and a blender marker. Once my coloring was finished, I lightly stippled Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink over and around the edges of the fan card.
Once my card base was finished, I stamped one of the Asian ladies along with the hope saying onto some scrap card stock, then colored with prismacolor markers before stippling the tumbled glass ink around the edges and layering onto scrap Stampin Up! card stock. My final touches was adding some white baby brads and then weaving some Michael's $1 bin pink organdy ribbon with gold trim through the slots of the die cut fan then tying a small bow.
