Gung Hay Fat Choi!

 A quick second post for today, and a second card. It took me forever to trim a straight line with the Japanese rice paper, in the end it was a little off  but the mix of black and gold layers of cardstock hides it well. I have the asian coin glued onto a another layer of rice paper and black cardstock to have it popped up.

I used my Derwent Watercolour pencils to color the image and I added some Diamond glaze to the candle flame and wax to give it a glossy look.

Supplies, Ivory and black and gold cardstock, Designer Paper-Japanese rice paper, There She goes- The Journey, Spellbinders-Scalloped Circle, Circle Punch, Asian coin embellishment.

Enjoy a Chinese sesame ball with red bean filling (oh so nummy) today :) I know I will.



  1. Very cool! Is this for someone celebrating the Chinese New Year? Or just influenced by it? At any rate its gorgeous.
