'Arty' or a 'Scrappy Mess'!?

Okay, don't laugh, this is me trying to be "arty".

At Just for Fun this week the challenge is to use 'Corrugated Card' and as this is an inky/get messy challenge blog, I've tried to create an 'aged' piece but I can tell you this is harder than it looks.

I tore some of the paper off of the corrugated card, then gold embossed a chinese dragon onto it.  I cut it out with a circular nestie (had to roll it through 3 times), then aged and coloured it with various distress inks.  I mounted the dragon onto another piece of card, which I had aged with torn strips of paper and various inks.  Added a chinese coin and some raffia.





Thanks for visiting and I don't mind if you have a giggle - after all this challenge is "Just for Fun"!

Hi Suze. Fab project. Corrugated card really suits this oriental theme. This reminds me of those beautiful oriental lanterns that you see that have the silky tassels on.

Fabulous and certainly ART can imagine that the stamping and embossing onto the corrugated card was no easy job but it looks wonderful. the background card from the first picture thought this was corrugated the strips are very effective. Thank you for sharing with us at Just for Fun XOXO Zoe
