Sending smiles from Koala friends

Happy Monday! I am sending you smiles across the miles from China!

It’s been raining all week last week since we arrived in China. I hope the weather will get a little better. Positively thinking, at least it’s not as hot as it usually is at this time of year. My parents and us are going to a photo studio tomorrow for a special photo shoot session to keep our memory. I cannot wait to see how they could make us look like stars.

This card above is a See through window card in my language. It makes people who receives this card feel more interested when they open it as well. To begin, I colored most of images with Copic markers from Pretty Pink Posh Koala Friends Stamp set and cut them with coordinating dies. I also used foliage images from Pretty Pink Posh Bunny Friends Stamp set and cut with coordinating dies as scene building supplements.

I cut the open window on the top part of a A2 white card base using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Diamonds die and set aside. I grabbed a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper to create background. I did ink blending technique by using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, and Cracked pistachio. Then I attached this background onto side of the A2 card. After find the center by closing top of the card, I stamped sentiment with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black on the background.

I adhered all colored images to selected areas using Multi Medium Matte, and I added Pretty Pink Posh Jewels in Spring Green and Shamrock as embellishments.

Here are Copic coloring references for this card:
