Papertrey Ink's WCMD Challenge #1: Japan

11:43 PM

Off it goes with Papertrey's around-the-world tour ;-) First, I'll visit Japan! Among the things that remind me of Japan is... the sakura flower, manga comics, sushi, colorful birds, origami, kimonos, quality paper, Copic markers, beautiful Kanji caligraphy ...and a funny overnight stay at Narita airport (Tokyo) with a friend some years ago :-) Of course, I couldn't get all of this on the card so I decided for the following:

My little sakura flower is handcut from vellum and the flower center is stamped with one of PTI's Mod Squad stamps. A tutorial to fold the bird can be found on Flickr.

Happy WCMD to everyone!

Stamps: PTI Mod Squad
Ink: Colorbox chestnut
Paper: PTI stamper's select, Basic Grey offbeat, vellum
Other: Copic markers (B05, E33, 0, RV29, R05), Rayher waxed cotton string, glue dots, Pentel white gel pen, clear embossing powder, Faber-Castell Ecco pigment pen
