Head to the Orient with ISS

Don't I wish!!! LOL  I just LOVE this Anime image from InStyle Stamps!  Her name is Mykai, and I could hardly wait to use her.  So much so that I am not quite arranged and organized in my new studio, but I HAD to go ahead and use her.  I have, somewhere, some great papers to use with an oriental look and, of course, I can't find them NOW... but never fear... they will turn up somewhere! 

I began by coloring Mykai using my Copic markers.  I cut her out and placed her on top of my pendent Nestabilitie which I used Gina K's Pure Luxury Metallic card stock, Silver Lining.  My pendant is mounted on top of a piece of black card stock which I scored diagonally using my Scor-Pal, making diamond shapes.  Instead of using it as most would with the scores being embossed... I turned the piece over and the scores are now raised on my paper.  LOVE how this looks. 

Again I mounted the entire piece on top of another piece of the Silver Lining card stock.  I used my CLEAR rhinestones and colored them with my Copics to get just the right shade of red I wanted.   A simple knotted piece of silver string and my card is done!

On the inside I kept it clean and simple.  Using a piece of DP and more Silver Lining card stock.  I wasn't sure what sentiment I wanted on this card so I just left it blank to use as a note card or just a personal message.  I used my EK Success Wave Flourish punch on both a piece of red and black and mixed them together for a simple but fun corner embellishment.

Did you know that if you go to InStyle Stamps Blog, and click on the "Shop Now" button on the left, you can get a 5% discount on your order with InStyle Stamps???  AND... if you buy digi images, which is what my card is made from today.. that is a really big discount as most digi images are under $5!!!!

You really should check out all the adorable images over at InStyle Stamps.  And if you're a fan of Anime drawings, Virginia has some very very cute ones available as well. 

Have a great day!! *smile*
