Images of the Orient

This is a really simple card, using 9 squares punched out with a Woodware Lever punch, which punches 1 3/8
squares.They are arranged on black card in a grid with a narrow gap between them.This was then matted onto a medium blue card, then onto a Square Black card base.They were all punched from an assortment of stamped images, keeping to a blue/purple colour range. I felt it needed something to offset the visual weight of the Gold Kanji letter in the bottom right, and fortunately the Oriental coins I have are a pretty good colour match.This had a couple of strands of Mizhuiki cord threaded over a piece of cocktail stick, all held in place with a couple of glue dots.

  1. I think I need to have a look at these shape punches. The effect is so good. I am sure I could not do as well with the guillotine and certainly not with a blade. I like that one lots. By the way, I think you and I had the same system for following the WOYWW blogs this week. I seemed to be the next one after you on most of my comments. Thanks for the message of congratulation on the birth of Rosie. She is cute, just as much as her big sister.
