Combining Stamping and Painting

Hello! Trena here. Many ideas popped into popped into my head when I saw all the lovely Kanji images! I didn't know where to start. :o) My DT Sisters have been creating lovely projects. I get a lot of inspiration from them! I hope you'll take some time to visit our blog each day and get some inspiration too!!

For this project, I combined my love for stamping with my love for painting and drawing. I saw a room divider on line and thought I could make that! :o) Here's what I did to create this Bamboo trifold tag:
  1. Stamped background image off and then onto white card stock twice for the full screen.
  2. I then hand painted the bamboo trees.
  3. Next, I cut them into three panels, considering the size of my tag and gold and black layers.
  4. Adhered the layers.
  5. Added ribbon and cord.
  6. All done!
Stamps: Kanji Images
: white, black, & gold metallic card stock, trifold tag

Absolutely beautiful, Trena! And if not everyone is blessed with your painting skills, they could stamp the bamboo or a similar image!
