Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - K


This fortnight's letter on the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge is K. I had a look through the K section for suitable words and came up with king, kiss, knowledge but kimono jumped out at me. I covered both pages with white acrylic paint. I used a trellis screen mask and perfect peach Glimmer Mist as a background on the right hand page and flipped it over to use up the excess mist on the left hand page. The kimono is by Non Sequitur stamped on blue card. I coloured the detail in with coloursoft pencils and Sansodor. The Japanese girl and the BG text are by Simple Expressions stamped in Archival plum. I used a scrap of washi paper to cover a chipboard K and made an obi (belt) for the kimono. I punched a couple of floral motifs from the same washi paper. The DPS was edged with Archival plum and I stamped a Non Sequitur motif in each corner with Impress chartreuse.

  2. Love your pages, fabulous stamps and great use of the washi paper. Thought of kimono myself as I have quite a lot of oriental stamps, may have to rethink lol!

  4. It's lovely, Rukhshana. I agree, there seems to be an oriental theme revival. Graphic 45 have brought out a lovely Bird Song kit which I have my eye on.
