ID: Yalpha O

Mailing Due Date: April 9, 2008
4.5"w x 4"h (the O extends 1/4" above and to the side)

I used a dark blue Bazzill Monochromatic cardstock. I just picked up these oversized Monogram letters by MSE real cheap. They were originally $8.99Cdn each and I got them for $2.00 each. Anyway, I stamped the O using my wide applicator of 2 way glue and a piece of mat board and then laying a piece of gold leaf over it. Cut out the mat board and colored the edge a dark blue. Glued it to the page a little over the edges (I'm in an over the edge kind of mood this weekend). Used a 1.5 Parallel pen to write the word Oriental in a dark blue ink in a Neuland style, when dry I went around the edges with a quill nib and Bleed Proof white ink. I found the Haiku on the web and thought it would be nice here. Punched out my Sakura flowers from some decorated papers from eons ago (that Lorraine Douglas class). Used a large rounded stylus to give a 3D effect to the flowers and only glued them on the center areas, so their petals are slightly raised, also added a yellow Stickles dot . Rubber stamped the Dragonfly (Pink Cat Studios - Oriental Stamp Set) onto a piece of green vellum using a dark green Color Box stamp pad and Pearl embossing powder. Cut it out and only glued the body so the wings are free and slightly raised. Now hopefully it will keep it's shape in the mail.
