I had so much fun making this card for Katie at Japan Crafts !

I saw these lovely stickers and thought straight away sushi tray. Yum !

The card was quite straightforward to make so it's a just a matter of layering and adding the dimensionality (is that a word ?0 to the tray handles.

I use three patterned papers in the simili shade of subdued lime green to complete the look I left a white border around the central mat as some stickers had white on them so to recall that hue.

Love that dragon ! Don't you ? I thought that paper matched it perfectly. I had so much fun making this card. I've used very dark contrasting red and black paper for matting.

I coloured the image with pastel pencils and sansodor, final touch was adding a peel off at the bottom.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I liked making it with it's clean and simple style.

I'm back posting after a sabbatical as per my other post on my main blog 'craftingmad'.

I suddenly realised I never posted the samples I created for Japan Crafts for one of their show last year.

I'll be uploading the cards on a weekly basis, hoping they will inspire you in your oriental cardmaking.

I wanted to play with the contrast between the black peel-off and the crisp white of the base card, adding just a 3D element (the fan) to the image.

As a secondary focal point I wanted that fan japanese paper which is a favourite of mine to 'sing' so I just matted it with a matching green card.
