Woodware Design team Challenge - Two Colours

For this week's challenge we had to choose two colours to work with. I chose pink and green - well I'm not sure if I've followed the brief exactly as I've added gold and you also have black and white in the mix. However from my teaching days I do remember that black and white are not considered colours because you use them to alter colour tones. 
Away from the art lesson! I really enjoyed this challenge and I think it shows.
I've used another favourite stamp; FRP022 Cherry Blossom
It is a wood mounted stamp but there is a smaller variation in a clear set;
FRCL070 Oriental Ladies
I've used the greeting from that set.
The kimono is paper pieced from a scrap of pale green stripy paper. I've shaded over the top with green pens.

For the border I used the Woodware Crafty Edger with the Japanese Fan cassette [love it!]. The flowers are made using these three punches: Cherry 821-82, Grass 1 821-68 and Stamens FPC1-01

I have used lots of Mark Richard bling for decoration: 3mm Nailheads and Gems. I also highlighted some of the coloured detail with the clear Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen.

Of course if you know me there has to be a bit of ribbon. I've also used Gold Hat Elastic RIB901 to tie into a knot around the card. It looks like Japanese paper cord.

I start the week off and I hope you will go to the Woodware blog through the week to see what my other team mates have done for this challenge.
