Asian Twin Card

I can't even remember the last time I blogged about this book that I bought from Disney World a couple of years ago:

But I do remember that my first attempt to color one of the pages is not very successful.  I tried coloring with Copic markers, but the results were not so good (click here to see).

So for the past couple of weeks, I took my time and started coloring another page.  It has the Sakura theme, Japanese term for Cherry Blossoms.  This time, I used Prismacolor water color pencils and Gamsol.

I wanted to use this page on a card.  But the size is too big for one.  So I decided to make 2 cards, splitting this image in two.  Each card fits in a standard A10 envelope.

This is how they look together:

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Recollections, The Paper Company, washi paper
coloring:  Prismacolor
tools:  punch (Marvy Uchida, Stamin' Up)
embellishments:  twist tie, pearls
adhesive:  Scotch, Glue Dots, Xyron, mounting tape

I love how the washi paper shows through the image.

And the flower embellishment is achieved by layering punched Sakura shapes, topped with pearls.  The red strip you see is actually a twist tie bought in Japan.

I had a great time making these two cards.  See, I wasn't slacking...  hee hee!

'Til next blog!
