Welcome to my new blogging buddies Norma, Tan, & Carol! It's so nice to have you here, I hope you get inspired. ;)
Before I get to today's LFF #17, I wanted to say Arigato to Nadine and Thanh for linking up. Although Nadine didn't want the stamp (she was the guest designer for Sister Stamps so she already had Miyako) I was so happy that she linked up. That means the winner of the Miyako stamp is Thanh!! Woo Hoo!! Thanh be sure to email me your snail mail address so I can get Miyako out to you. Here is what she had to say about the Sister Stamps line:
"I would love to win a Sister Stamp because I've been so excited to see some Asian stamps that really represent the Chinese/Asian culture. I love the lion dance ones and the fans and lanterns. Even their eyes are perfect. ;) I have had to hold off because of Christmas presents, but look forward to putting in an order soon. Thanks for the chance to win. :D "It's so true what she said. I whole heartedly agree. Now here is my share for this week. I have been wanting to use some of my neglected Copic colors. Especially the blues. I had a fun time with the FBW #190, Anything with Wings challenge post so I thought I would make another one using one of my creative friend's handmade dragonflies and cute little Kiyomi from Sister Stamps.
Here is a very simple design that doesn't really need a lot for it to work. The card is actually 4x4, I just enlarged it a bit so you can see the details. I replaced the butterfly that comes with Kiyomi with the dragonfly. The dragonfly in orange really gives this a pretty amazing feel especially because it's so much bigger than Kiyomi. Sorta looks like she's in the distance and reaching to pet it.

The dragonfly is sitting on a (Tim Holtz) mini paper rosette. The rest of the card is dark blue cs (Recollections) layered with an origami paper (Aitoh) and the frame to match.
