Welcome to your Midweek reminder for the fortnight Fairy Fun Fridays challenge 35 of embossing. You still have time to enter your creation for a chance to win some fabulous images from Prairie Fairy Designs. This beautiful image Japanese Lanterns can be purchased from our own Prairie Fairy Queen at Prairie Fairy Designs.
I chose to do dry embossing for this card and used the Distressed EF from SU. I colored my images with watercolor crayons and blended the colors with a blending stump and baby oil. I layered the lanterns as well as shaped them to give a more 3D effect. I used the Embrace Life stamp set from SU to make my background and my lantern. I used a Faux Silk technique, where you stamp onto tissue paper, color in with a brush tip marker and then crumple it up and then spread it out. You adhere it to cardstock with a glue stick and receive a raw silk look to your paper. I tried to re-create the lanterns Queenie has so beautifully drawn by using a wide oval punch and trimming it. I did the Faux Silk technique on it as well as I thought it emulated the look of rice paper.
I used the sketch from Saturday Sketch 120. I am also entering this card at Stempel-Magie 19 - Autumn Colors; Allsorts Challenge 69 - Colours of Autumn and Anything Goes 16 - Oriental.
