Oriental Card for Crafty Bloggers challenge;

To Make the card Red Bazzil card
Gold Mirri card
A4 red card taken from stash.
Peony Card from a pack that I think was called Oriental Blossoms.
The coin was one from a shop that has since closed that was based at the Plymouth Barbican.
Red ribbon.
Versamark inkpad.
Red Tinsel embossing powder.
Red and Black Flexi marker.
Ivory Pro-marker
Oriental lady stamp ....this was a set off of QVC many years ago.
 And the Character stamp in the corner was one I found in my basket that I did'nt know I had.......I don't even know if I have stamped it the right way up!

This seems more difficult than it actually is the trick will be for me to explain it, so you my wonderful peeps can understand it. OK! take the Lady stamp and ink her up to her neck in Versamark leaving her head and face blank once this has been done take the red flexi marker and dab onto her lips she now has bright red lipstick! then take the Black flexi marker and colour her hair and eyes make sure the rest of the "bits" that are round her hair are coloured in too. Now stamp (THIS IS WHEN I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER) and lift you should now have an image of her face with the dress being in Versamark. Now add the Red Tinsel Embossing powder, and heat gently the sparkle is unbelievable.  Add red ribbon if desired and  trim if needed and set aside. Taking a red A4 card I scored on 8inches so the 8 inch square is the back square part of the card.I folded along that line then trimmed just a smidge as the end on one side was a bit battered! I then cut the back piece slightly smaller and added the character and embossed in Red Tinsel in the right bottom corner. Glued the back smaller card onto the main red body so as to leave an edge of red card showing. and then  did the same to the front adding the coin and ribbon.
I then simply matted and layered my lady coloured her face in ivory and her neck though her neck looks pink in the photo I have no idea why unless its the reflection off the red tinsel?
Well that's all for today TTFN. xx
