Hi Everyone and happy Tuesday. Things have been a little busy around here the last few days, but I've got a really great card to share with you. For this card i combined 2 challenges. This weeks Card Pattern Challenge and the Color Create challenge using Green and Red.I thought I would take a shot at an Asian inspired theme so here is the sketch...
I started out with Garden Green, Sahara Sand and a really pretty deep red CS. Also adding in a patterned Matte from the Far East DCWV Matte Stack. I also used an Asian print red paper on the layers. The Oval and diamond shape are from the nesties Labels1 and Ovals sets. I love the nesties and think I need to get a few of the new releases.
The image of the Dragon is one of my favorites, but unfortunately I don't have a brand to share. I got it on Ebay. Using Le Plume markers, and some glaze pens as well as a green shimmer pen, I colored the image in. Then ink distressed the edges with Nick Bantock Ink in Vermillion Lacquer.
I added a moss green satin ribbon through the labels die cut, then added the Dragon image with dimensionals. I used 2 colors of cord: Black and Moss Green, applied them with adhesive. Then I used a few pieces of Tim Holtz Grunge Board that I painted with Red Adirondack Dabber. To finish off the corner, I added an Asian coin on top. The Sentiment is from Third Coast Stamps using Onyx Black Versamark and again distressing the piece of CS with the Vermillion Lacquer.
I really hope you like the card. I love creating with Asian influence and this card was no exception.
Thanks for stopping by and
