Making it With Meslyn Challenge #5

I cant believe that the time has flown since the last challenge, here is the next challenege over at Making it with Meslyn.

There is some yummy card candy and other bits from Craftwork Cards up for grabs as a prize for this challenge so hop over and take part!

This time the goodie bag Carolyn gave us was themed as 'Oriental Monochrome' and it was a really good theme to get my teeth into - the papers were so yummy I just didnt want to use them but gave in, in the end after ooing and aahing over them!! for this challenege I decided to make an easel card and used TH distress ink in black soot to do the distressing; the apertures were cut with nestabilities and the colouring with the OMS pencil technique.
Here is a close up so you can see the colouring and apertures, and because the kokeshi doll (i think thats what she is anyway) was printed on ultra smooth pearlescent card, the OMS technique worked reallly really well.

The part that holds the easel shape on the base, is a piece of card folded in half and then cut with a circle nestability just past the fold line and through both pieces when they are folded, so it flips open to reveal a little place where you can write your message (here is a close up).
I mounted the flower on top of the folded circle shape.

please pop over and take part in the challenge this fortnight, there are some great goodies on offer again if you win!
