Lexi’s Creations #47 - Oriental

Arggghhhh I should be shot. I completely forgot to post my DT card for this fortnight’s challenge at Lexi’s Creations, where we are once again sponsored by image with a 5 pack of promarkers up for grabs.

Our challenge to you this time is to make something Oriental. I was lucky enough to be given this gorgeous image from Lexi’s own range which are available at Fairy Dust Crafts. My lovely oriental girl is called Ching Lan.

Lexi 47a I coloured her in with Promarkers, apart from her skin which are copics. The paper is a freebie from a craft magazine from a Kate Night stack, and the pink card is a WRMK sheet. The corners were cut with Nellie Snellen dies which I mistakenly thought were corner dies, but actually I prefer that they sculpt the corner of the page instead, although you do have to be very precise with where you position them before you cut. The centre and image are cut out with nesties. Greenery is cut with various Marianne dies and the flowers are from my Wild Orchid stash. The chinese coin I have had for ever and it was originally brass but I coloured it with the same colour I chose for her dress.

I am entering this into:-
