Japanese JOY!

This card has been in the works for a while. First I had to hunt down the meaning of the Kanji, and thank you to Jane (Whoopsie daisy) and others on SCS, I now know it means JOY!! I've marked it on my stamp block so I'll never have to look for the meaning again!

I love the Kimono set, but find it really hard to use...make sense?? Anyway, the washi paper I chose reminded me of kimono fabric, so I placed it as though it was draping across the card.

I took a paintbrush and the gold metallic paint and brushed the edge of the Whisper White to give it 'something'. And I used blossoms on the background in two shades.

Sets used: Kimono and Art of the Orient
Supplies: Blush Blossom, Whisper White & Brushed Gold cardstocks with Washi Paper. Gold cording, Gold EP and the Tearing Edge.

I love your kimono card. I have been searching for that set to go with my Kanji and Oriental Brushstrokes. Let me know if you wanna image swap!
