Hi crafters. I had an idea for a japanese inchy card. I wanted the bamboo to look like black ink painting so I used the Impression Obsession bamboo stamp with a black soot distress stain dauber and did a single stamping. I cut a red inchy from scrap and embossed 2 layers of Gina K red hot embossing powder on it. I next stamped the Kaisercraft oriental calligraphy stamp on the left and a wood block egret which says Stampscapes on it. I embossed these in gold. I left some of the stray powder on. I felt the egret wasn’t easily recognisable so I stamped on top with black StazOn. As it was a wood block stamp, it isn’t exactly on top but I didn’t want to start again. The main problem with the inchy was chasing it while embossing. I tried to stick it to the wooden board but it kept blowing and I tried to support it with a paint brush handle.
I mounted the inchy on a gold paper circle with a black thick one underneath to make it more stable.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
My choice is diecutting.
I used gold paper and gold embossing.
