I'm going to enter this card in three different challenges this week...the first challenge calls for an umbrella, rain or clouds, the second calls for three flowers and the third challenge is called April Showers. Here are the links for all three challenges. Fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com, Especiallymade.blogspot.com and creativecutterroom.com.
I knew for this card I wanted to have a somewhat Asian feel, so I chose the image of Mulan and since I was crossing over into another challenge which included flowers, I decided to use the Chrysanthemum since it has a lot of meaning in the Chinese culture.
For this card I used the following cartridges and measurements. Happily Ever After-Mulan (pg 75), cut at 7 1/2 inches and the umbrella/icon, cut at 4 inches. Flower Shoppe-Mum (pg 21), cut at 1 inch and 1 1/2 inches.
Like I've said before, Im big on inking and the colors that I used on this card are...burgandy, antique gold, brown and cottage ivy. I also used Copic markers to color Mulans face and hands...E00, E01 and R20.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and have a look. Kathie
