Hello – I’m back at the Craft-Room challenge after my holidays and this week Zoe has set the theme of ‘Oriental’.
Our sponsor this fortnight is Tanda Stamps manufacturers of un-mounted rubber stamps in a range of styles to suit every taste.
I have to admit that I’ve never been big into the oriental style. I appreciate the creations of others and do love the striking colours but my supplies are very limited and I struggled initially to come up with anything for this week. I then remembered some topper images a friend got me for my birthday about a hundred years ago. The background of the tag is stamped with a Judikins stamp - Artifacts cube, in gold stazon.
I had made the little fans previously for another project so recycled them – they are made from a section of the Tim Holtz Rosette die cut and a bead with a gold thread tassel. I added some punched dragonflies and black gems to finish off. It wasn’t until I took the photograph I realised I’d forgotten a ribbon through the top – so please use your imaginations as I ran out of time !
You can share your Oriental projects on the Craft-Room Challenge blog or on our facebook group. Don’t forget to visit my team mates too, they have some fab inspiration!
I’m also sharing my tag here -
Thanks for stopping by – Esther xx
