Lantern Sketch

Here's my third submission in my bid for the DT of the new Inkspirational challenge blog.

I think I largely kept to the sketch, but I used the idea of  a triangle of  the same thing in decreasing size, and substituted the butterflies with lanterns.

I stamped Bo Bunny lanern stamps onto black card and heat embossed in gold. Then I paper pieced them in Japanese paper. I used a notch punch and embroidery thread to create a border.

As well as the Inkspirational DT call, I'd also like to enter this for One Stop Craft Challenge 'heat embossing'.

This is a truly stunning card Marina. Brilliant idea to use lanterns which are so pretty. All three cards that you have submitted for DT are worthy of the appointment. Michelle x
