OSA Card Exchange

Hello everyone!

After a crazy road trip with my mom visiting family in Southern Ontario and Quebec, we are back home.  I can safely say my wandering foot (that I inherited from my dad) has been satisfied... for now :)  Maybe next month I can convince my hubby to drive me somewhere else! Hee Hee!!

I have a lot of catching up to do though. Here and on my swaps...
To start with is an easier one. 
I am part of a monthly exchange that requires the use of oriental themed stamps and a colour restriction.  LOVE these!  the month of August was Black, White and Yellow. Decided to add some stitching to the card too.

Started by stamping the Lotus Blossoms (unknown) on thin white cardboard to be able to withstand the stitching.  I coloured the flowers with SU! ink colours: Yo Yo Yellow, Summer Sun and Summer Starfruit.  I used a poking instrument to make the holes and stitched the centre of the flowers with white, yellow and black thread.  I then cut out the flowers individually.

I embossed some yellow cardstock with a new embossing folder by Darice called Lotus Blossom.

I used the Spellbinders Labels 2 set to cut out a focus piece out of scrap white and black packaging then stamped the Kanji (Digital Princess Designs).  Then it was just a matter of assembling the card!

More later this week!
