Those Patio Lanterns!

Yes – you can sing the song – if you remember it!!!!! And you are Canadian!
Not quite a Christmas image – but perhaps a Chinese New Year one? Regardless – who doesn’t love those beautiful paper lanterns!!!

Paper Lanterns:
Card dimensions – 5 ½” x 3 ½”
Materials: CS – (Bazzill); Paper – Accademia (Fabrianno); Ink – Black StazOn (Tsukineko); Stamp – Paper Lanterns SD065 E, Swirl SD042 G (Sunshine Designs available at The Stamp Barn); amber grosgrain ribbon (ribbon share TexasJodiLynn), foam tape, Tombow markers, water brush, Sakura glitter pens.

You can’t tell from the photo – but I stamped the image twice – 1 for the main piece that is matted, and the second to cut our each lantern from and pop it up on top of the original – adds great dimension when you do that. Don’t forget to make your lanterns shine with Sakura glitter pens carefully blended on top after you colour. Makes them look like they are shining (it didn’t show well on the photo though)

And here is the colour chart for the paper!

Until next time, have a great day!
