One of my nieces loves Oriental decorations. I made her a decorative screen last year. I made this Chinese Lantern for her birthday this year.
I used black card stock and added some copper chalk ink and gilder's paste. (I will be using the gilder's paste a LOT so more info in that later :)
I used my branch with my cherry blossom files. I used one set of petals last year but decided to use 2 sets of petals per flower this time. They are inked with Barn Door distress ink and finished off with a pearl that I colored yellow with a Sharpie marker.
