China Doll Beauty June 10, 2014 18:49
Hi Everyone!! Ken here with Ken’s Kreations. So the funny thing about today’s project was all based around a paper pad. You know when you go to your favorite craft store and a new paper pad is in stock and you just have to HAVE it. Well I found that paper pad, however due to it’s specific theme, I do not find a day to day use for this beautiful paper. So I challenged myself to create something and lucky for me ScrappyDew had the perfect file for me. Here is What I came up with:
So this whole project was based around the DCWV FAR EAST PAPER STACK. I feel in love with this paper stack as soon as I saw it. However as I said it was hard for me to find use for this elegant paper in my everyday use. Fortunately for me Scrappy Dew had the perfect file for this paper stack. The file is called KONNICHIWA DOLLS. It features 3 beautiful dolls, one holding an umbrella. Well I knew this would be the base for my card. I cut the doll using my CRICUT EXPLORE at 5.5 inches tall. I know I sound like a broken record, but anytime I can reduce my time spending on the “work” behind my project I will. That is why I turn to my CRICUT EXPLORE so much when working with layered images since it takes the work out of the equation for me. I inked all my edges using DEW DROP INK and one of my favorite tools, INK DAUBERS. I used the PAGODA CARTRIDGE for the Japanese folding screen and the beauty sentiment.
I wanted to make sure that the screen actually folded so I used 3D FOAM DOTS to raise the middle of the screen up to give the look that the screen was folded in towards the china doll. I also took 3D FOAM DOTS to raise the “BEAUTY” sentiment.
One of the final touches I made was to take BLACK AND WHITE ENAMEL ACCENTS to highlight the tree on the screen and the letters on “Beauty”
Thanks for taking a look at today’s keratin. Come back tomorrow to see what Kreation I come up with next.
