Only You Card

Close-up of Dress

I knew that I wanted to use this beautiful image from Tiddly Inks to create an oriental themed card.  (The image is called chi and you can find it here).  I have seen people use patterned paper to paper-piece clothing.  But I wanted something really unique. So I used a oriental floral stamp from an old Close to My Heart Stamp set to make a pattern on her dress.  I colored the dress using my Copic Sketch markers and then created a mask around her dress-then I stamped with versamark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I also embossed the chopsticks in her hair to match!  I used a gold leaf pen to color in her shawl.  I put the card together using the Tiddly Inks Challenge Sketch (shown below). 

I plan to enter this card into the following challenges: (see below) the World (China) it!
