Best wishes

Hi there!

Hope you are doing fine... mid week already!

The challenge theme for this fortnight at Addicted to CAS is : ORIENTAL





I used gold ink to sponge the circular image, with a stencil that was cut with my Silhouette , from a clip art image I found by searching for 'Japanese clip art' on Google.

The butterfly was folded with origami patterned paper. ( Google helped me here as well ;)

Sentiment printed on vellum , using the font " Chow fun ".

                                                           


Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Definitely a winning design, Hannelie. The gold was good enough but the origami butterfly put it over the top.

So oriental soos kan kom, vrou!! Jou oorsproklikheid en briljante idees slaan my nog telkemale dronk!! So slim om die clip art te kry - dit is so eg Japannees en sowaar 'n klein origami skoenlapper ook - te pragtig!! En daai Chow fun font is alweer die kersie op die koek om alles pragtig saam te vat!!! Die rooi en goud is natuurlik ook net die regte kleure om mee te werk vir die challenge!!
Puik gedoen,vrou!!!

Groete en 'n lekker dag daar, hoor!!

Zo super oosters dit ontwerp met het gouden ornament! Mooi DP voor de gevouwen figuren; het is een plaatje-kunstwerk geworden! Groetjes, Gerrina

To coin Geri's phrase ... winner, winner, chicken dinner! Hannelie, this is stunning ... the gold against red is gorgeous and the origami butterfly in the rich DP ... awesome! Hugs, Anita :)

Geri said...

Love your resourcefulness! Everything about your card is totally oriental! The origami butterfly is stunning, as is the cool Asian emblem in the background! Great, bold rusty-orange base!
