Don’t forget to stop by my team mates blogs to check out some more fabulous inspiration.
I am using an image from our sponsor, Fred She Said called Smelling the Cherry Blossoms I printed her out on regular A4 paper and cardstock and paper pieced her kimono using both plain and patterned Japanese rice papers placed over the image printed on A4 and reprinted on both the plain and patterned papers and selectively coloured the two images printed on to cardstock, layering the finished little girl onto the background, then cut out all the little cherry blossoms falling and layered them on too.
I covered a white card blank with black paper and cut four rectangles of patterned Japanese rice paper from my stash, ensuring to adhere them on the card to maintain the papers pattern.
Finished the card off with a basic sentiment from Darkroom Door and added some doodled stitching around the edge and some silver rhinestones in each corner. This card has already made its way to the recipient who loves all things Japanese.
