Medallion of Flowers

Inspired by a color challeng I made this card from the left over part of watercolor paper I died with oxide inks directly from my craftsheet. I used tree colors: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade and worn lipstick.

After the coloring I used the Bold flower medallion in a bed of calligrapy stamp with versamark on the watercolor and embossed the image with silver embossing powder. I decorated the circle with three sticky pearls.

On the top and bottom of the card you see a pair of ginkgo leaves in matching colors as decoration. The card is mounted on silver paper and decorated with a pink organza ribbon before mounted on the pink card. Thank you for looking and have a creative day!

Chinese Chop Signature

Good Morning,  it is Shirley posting today.  I have made a Asian card to share with you. I used the Calligraphy and Chinese Chop Signature along with the Bamboo and Kanji Bookmark.

 

Here is some information on the Chopped Calligraphy Stamp that I received from Annette.  The Japanese Kanji is a personalized signature and “chop” of an artist.  As you already know,  Asian artists sign their work with a stamp, a chop, in red. It is usually a square, a rectangle, an oval, or a combination of geometric shapes with Kanji or Chinese script inside the geometric shape. This design is extra special because it has three parts: the usual rectangle at the bottom left, a large central Kanji with a notation on the right that is smaller. This type of combination I have seen only in twentieth century signatures. Sometimes it will include not just the chop identifying the artist, but where the item was created, an actual date, a title for the art piece  and or a personal comment about the art by the artist.  This specific Japanese Kanji is some of the newest we have found from the late twentieth century.

Thanks, so much for joining us today. Have a great weekend.
