"There are no ordinary cats."
I am here with another try at an Oriental card for this week's MFP Oriental challenge. This sketch seemed simple enough, but when I got going, my card looked too simple so I had to add a few things. lol...
Here's the MFP Oriental sketch I used:
I can't seem to get a focused shot of the gold embossed butterflies. Here's an angled photo so you can see them a *little* bit better. (shrug...)
You can also see (maybe) that I sponged some gold metallic ink onto the black cardstock to soften the look a bit.
My favorite part of the card and probably the best part, too, is my handmade tassel with the bell....so I will give you an extra large photo of it. :)
I found this metallic cloisonne needlepoint yarn at a thrift store. I wrapped some brownish-red ribbon around the top of my tassel and glued a jingle bell to the top. Does it look Oriental??? I think it kind of does.
Other supplies include: Graphic 45 Bird Song stickers that I won last year, orange mulberry paper, DCWV paper, Coredinations cardstock.
Hope you enjoyed seeing my card. I especially will appreciate it if you rave about my tassel in your comments. I am quite proud of it. Ha!!
