Have you seen the new Asian dies recently released from Die-Versions? If not, you should definitely check them out. I want all of them :-).
For today's card, I used the new Pagoda die. I started out by die cutting it out of white cardstock and a piece of red fun foam. I used my Copic markers to color the pagoda. Bright yellow paper was adhered to the back of the die cut for the little cut outs.
Once I was happy with the coloring, I heat embossed the entire thing with Clear embossing powder by Ranger. I love how this makes it look like the pagoda is painted with glossy paint. Then I adhered this to the fun foam for more dimension.
For the background, I started out with a piece of watercolor paper and used a Dreamweaver stencil (Cherry Blossoms) to add the flowers using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I free-handed the mountains in the background using the Zig markers. The sky was also watercolored with these Zig markers and a aqua brush.
