Hello everyone, I am sorry my picture is not to the usual standard but my photographer and editor is still in hospital as I prepare this page to be scheduled for 16th June for my choice of Kimono for your challenge this week at CD Sunday Challenges. I chose Kimono for I have always enjoyed making Oriental cards and there are many good Oriental CDs around to choose your images. Did you know that "The kimono (着物) is a Japanese traditional garment worn by men, women and children. The word "kimono", which literally means a "thing to wear". For my card the main image is from Joanna Sheen Oriental Dreams, which is matted onto black and gold card. The overlapping fans are from an Oriental set of stamps from See D stamps. The string of beads are a mixture of varied beads from my stash and some paper beads, which are so easy to make and very effective. I found this You Tube video , if you want to give it a try. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bPsp6lfIV8
I look forward to again visiting you to view your Kimono projects. Thanks for visiting me and for any comments you leave.
