I had so much FUN with this kit that it was hard to stop at just 5 cards, but I didn't want to use up all my supplies so I can CASE cards from the other gals!! So sit back and enjoy some Good Fortune!!
I started with a quick and easy card using some of the DSP and die cuts (MFT's Good Fortune) Jeanne included in the kit...isn't it just so bright and colorful?!
Another easy one where I backed the die cut kimono (Tutti Designs) with a piece of the DSP and then added a strip of vellum and a stacked die cut "hello" from PTI's Wet Paint collection.
My 3rd card uses one of the little gals from Ellen Hutson's So Matcha set and I colored her with some Copics and added her to a water colored background and then popped a die cut oval frame over that before adding her to a embossed Pale Peony background that was included in the kit. Hard to see in my photo, but I used a glitter jewel pen on the sash, trim, and umbrella, so this card has some gold sparkle going on.
My 4th card is probably my favorite, but I see I'm not the only one who had the idea of making a Koi pond with some of the fish from the DSP (see Birgit's post also...great minds are thinking alike!!). This card really shimmers and shines IRL because I made the background using Lindy's Magicals in Tibetan Poppy Teal!!
Here's a close up so you can see some of that shimmer!!
My last card used a couple more of those little ladies from the So Matcha set along with a beautiful die cut called Cloudy Moon from Hero Arts. I backed the opening with a piece of the DSP (the DSP is all from Photoplay/Paper Crane) with the cherry blossoms and then colored the ladies with my Copics, and then used some WOS on their trim and sashes for some more shine.
And here's a photo of all of them...such a fun, FUN kit to play with this month...thanks so much Jeanne!!
