Lilo's Fun Friday #25

Happy Aloha Friday everyone!

Today's LFF #25 is a card I made for Mary J who was the winner of my 500th post RAK.  I had a lot of fun making this seriously CAS card.  I decided on a shape card since Mary loves to make them.  If you haven't been by her blog you should definitely check it out.  She has some amazing creative talent and awesome creations.  Hope you like it Mary!

I used Sister Stamps, Yoshimi, as she was the perfect size for this small card.  I die cut white cs (Neenah) but left the die on, stamped Yoshimi in the middle, masked her, inked up a Kodomo Inc stamp called Flower clouds with Distress Inks, Stormy Sky, then using the same color distressed the inside around the edge with Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass.  Once I was done inking up the inside I removed the die and voila a nice white border.  Next I stamped Yoshimi on white cs (Xpress It this time) and colored her up with Copics using soft pastel colors.  You can't tell but the flowers on the fans are the same colors as her kimono.  The rest I left white except light pink line and using my Scor-pal scored some lines on the fan.  I also folded them on the scored lines to make it look like the fans have dimension.  (Well I tried!)  Since I already stamped her on the Neenah paper I fussy cut her including the fans then glued her down.  I used some scrap twine and did another triple loop bow and added a half pearl.  Lovin' this embellishment!  This was all mounted on a pink Tsumugi cs that was cut with the largest Blossom Spellbinder die I have.   All done! :)

Alrighty, I hope you liked my share for today as much as I enjoyed making it.  Can't get enough of these images, they are really too cute and fun to color.  Mahalo for stopping by today, have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!!
