Odd title wouldn't you say? Well I have combined 2 challenges in 1 again and I just love how this turned out.
For Summer of Colour this week Kristin our host has chosen Red as the theme and as an added bonus " wings". If you have been following my adventure in the colour challenge you know my main focus was cardmaking but I decided to take a break and make an altered canvas. I already had a canvas covered and distressed so I used that as my base. I used corrugated cardboard which is the theme over at Just For Fun and used it as a backdrop for my Geisha who is sporting wings. I just got some new die cuts and these ones are beautiful butterflies ,I just had to use them in this piece. I distressed the corrugated cardboard first by painting with gesso, then I washed it with some Spice Brown acrylic paint, then used the credit card technique and applied the red. I added stitching and Chinese character rub ons. I added dragonflies and placed them in the area of the stitching. I made a scroll to hang along the side and added some Chinese coins. I really like how this turned out. I always have fun with my Asian themes.
Thanks for looking and remember to check out Kristin's blog and all the great participants in the Summer of Colour Challenge and take a peek at another fun blog from the UK called Just for Fun.
