Oriental Little Beauties

As many of these have raised embellishments
on them, they proved difficult to scan.
My photos are not that much better,
but at least they aren't all blurry!

These were made by adding 3 layers of deep green
embossing powder to chipboard,
stamping into it before it cooled,
and adding shrink plastic and metal embellishments.

Shrink plastic & metal embellishments mounted
onto oriental printed mirror card
- coloured red with a Stazon pad -
and layered onto black glossy card.

The left hand Little Beauty is an air dry clay
embellishment (Krafty Lady mould) mounted
onto a handmade scrunched magazine background.

The centre one is stamped (Curtis Uyeda at Paula Best)
and embossed and layered onto a handmade background,
and the one on the right is stamped
onto black card with Versamark,
brushed with Pearl Ex and sealed with hairspray,
then mounted onto gold mirror card.

The Little Beauty on the left is stamped
and embossed onto printed paper,
layered onto black glossy card
and finished with a peel off.

The one on the right is an air dry clay moulded
embellishment (Krafty Lady) mounted onto
black glossy card and finished with red peel offs.
