Japanese Influence

Edited 9-17-10: I added 2 pictures. I made a matching box for the card! To view scroll down!

Hello all and only one day to go for the weekend! :-) As soon as I saw this cute Japanese Tilda a LO of my card formed instantly in my Sometimes I just have to look at an image and I exactly know what I want to do with it. I was inspired by a Japanese Shoji (a japanese kind of screen / folding screen which is being used as room divider or in front of windows, made out of wood and paper)

Tilda was stamped onto cryogen white iridescent paper from Arjo Wiggins using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored her in with my Copics (a list of used Copics follows at the end of this posting).

I made the fan using Spellbinders Dahlia die set.. The little tassle I made out of embroidery floss.The DP is from the Basic Grey 'Whisteria' pad and DCWV 'The Far East' stack. Highlights where set with Stickles 'Star Dust' and 'Waterfall' as well as a Stardust gelly pen.

The sentiment is from Stempendous and the swirls stamp is from Hero Arts. The paper flowers on my card are from Magnolia and Whimsy Stamps. Also this tassle is made from embroidery floss and decorated with beads.

Here you can see all the dimension on the card

And here is the matching box for the card:
