It's ages since I posted as I've been tied up with other things. However, at the last minute, here's my entry for the
CRAFT ROOM challenge 'Going Oriental'.
I painted the small canvas with artists's acrylic in Black Mars and then cut six twinchies from red card. These are squares of card 2" x 2". After heat embossing the edges of the twinchies with Blonde Moments Fresh Red Iridescent, I heat embossed the individual images from a Kanban Chinese stamp set using black embossing powder. I stamped each image on paper as well to form a mask and used these to cover the embossed images while I stamped over the top using gold StazOn and a large blossom stamp from the same set. This gave a nice, subtle background to each twinchie. These were then glued into place using Glossy Accents.
To finish the hanging I sprayed four wooden chopsticks with gold spray paint and using the hot glue gun, stuck them to the sides of the canvas. Then I twisted red and black embroidery floss together to bind each corner.
