Tuesday Taggers teamie Sally great to meet you at last and see you magic at work in real life.Good morning Tuesday again already! Well it was a great week-end with the workshop on Saturday. One of the lovely people there was my
Well Halloween is now behind us and Christmas is looming! Time to do something different and have a break from all the seasonal stuff! Can you guess who chose this weeks theme? yep yours truely and well don't we all need a little break from Christmas cards? I love Oriental and mizuhiki cord only wish there was more time to get better at tying it.
The knot here is Kame Musubi (Turtle knot) The Turtle in Japan symbolizes a long life. The Gashi is a Tanda stamp from one of their 4 Eastern sets. Whisper pens in Black, Yellow and Red directly onto the stamp stamped and embossed with holograhic ep. The little topper mat was first cut with a plain oval nestie, Tanda bamboo in black round the edge and then Viva Inca Gold rubbed on the edge. The whole topper was then covered with clear versa mark and clear ep melted over it a couple of times. Must remember to use tweezers and stop burning my fingers. A strip of oriental paper (Papermania I think) down the center gives a background to the work and seems to help bring it forward.
The team have made some lovely samples this week please go and take a look we hope it will inspire you to dust off your Oriental crafting stamps, papers and materials and share your Oriental themed work with us at Tuesday Taggers
