Bunta in Blue

New stamp, new paper, new technique, whoo hoo!  I love this Asian stamp called Bunta by Scrolls Work, she inked up so well.  Don't forget the Scrolls Work 35% off sale ends tomorrow the 9th.  I used black embossing powder to give her more depth.  I used a paper piecing technique from Technique Junkies layering her up.  The beautiful paper is Websters Pages Vellum Designs 2 Digi Collection.  I printed the paper twice, once 7 x 7  on to a 5 x 7 formatted sheet size the other 8 x 8.  I stamped her on the 8 x 8 sheet and cut her out and pieced her on to the other page, that way the wheel spokes would look like the bg paper (my card size is 5 x 7).  I stamped her again to get her beautiful Kimono, cut and pasted that and took the hands from the one underneath and pasted them on top.  I took the words live your dreams from the 8 x 8 with a Spellbinders Labels 10.   I used Tim Holtz Weathered Wood distress ink which is a bluish black color.  I made the flowers with my Cricut.  That's it for today, I hope you liked it.  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
