Yumi and Fumi Handmade Challenge #21 - Team Fumi

Hi folks,

Today I am sharing my Team Fumi creation for Challenge #21 over at the Yumi and Fumi Handmade Challenge Blog.

Challenge #21 is an "Anything Goes" challenge and you have until this Friday to link up your challenge entries at the Y&FH challenge post here.

Don't forget - you can now use ANY stamped image!!! It has to be a coloured image - "sentiment only" cards won't be eligible to win. If you use a Y&FH image, your name will be added a maximum of 1 extra time after the last name in Inlinkz.

What's up for grabs? The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to the Yumi & Fumi Handmade online store while the Top 3 will receive a 10% discount code to be used in the Yumi & Fumi Handmade online store. AWESOME!

So, here are my projects. Yes, you read that right. Projects. I could not help myself. I really wanted to use images from the Kimono Series and I could not decide between the two stamps that I had from that series (the other two arrived the day after I finished these two so you could have been seeing QUADRUPLE!)  - Yumi with Fan and Fumi with Gift.

I used the same layout for both cards, the August Sketch for You to Try from Reverse Confetti, taking a wee liberty with the Yumi card by changing the layering of the panels and flipping the sketch for the Fumi card.

The most handy tool for colouring these images was my white gelly roll pen from Sakura. I wanted to recreate the look of the kimono on the package for the Yumi stamp so, after colouring the images with my Copic markers,  I added the little dots with the gelly roll pen to Yumi's kimono and to Fumi's gift.
