A card for the The Stampman Challenge #15 - Oriental and .Sentimental Sundays #40 Chinese New Year
I decided to stay with the red, blank and gold theme for this so I started off with an A5 black base card.
The background was white card which was sprayed with Scarlet and Raven Glimmer Mist sprays. Once dry this was stamped randomly, using Versamark ink, with the same flower stamp that you can see on the left of the red card and this was embossed with clear powder. You can just see this effect along the top of the card. It was difficult to photograph!
The A6 central red card was stamped 6 times with the same stamp. Two more were stamped on individual squares of red, leather textured card which had previously been stamped with some oriental script. The script and flower stamps are by Judikins. The individual squares were mounted on squares of gold card and then mounted onto the red card.
The main image, by the Stampman, was stamped on leather textured card and sprayed with a pale glimmer mist. This was mounted onto gold card which in turn was added to the card using foam pads for extra depth.
Gold thread was wrapped around the spine of the A6 red card and oriental style beads added to the ends of the thread. The A6 card was then taped shut and mounted onto the background card
