2nd Stamp Carnival in Japan

2nd Stamp Carnival was held in Tokyo about a month ago. Unfortunately I could not make it due to the distance and the cost of the airplane ticket.

While I had to stay here, I made ATCs for the event swap and 2 cards for the card contest.
Although my cards were not chosen for any awards, I had a lot of fun with making these ones. The best part is that I could participate any ways for the only stamp event in Japan!



My ATC for the swap

I made 2 versions for the ATC. I stamped the hydrangea image and colored with the Copic markers. And I masked the image and stamped the swirl image and the definition for the background. I sponged some ink to added the colors and outlined the hydrangea image to emhasize the image. I stamped the sentiment "bloom" and cut it with the xacto knife.


Here is the close

The entries for the card contest

The theme for the contest was "Summer"

The Sunflower card:
I colored the image with the Copic markers. As you can see with the close up photo, I added some glitter with Stickles on the butterfly and the flowers.
For the back panel with the flowers, I stamped the flower stamp and colored with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. After all the coloring were done, I stamped the canvas stamps on the panel.
The stamps are from Lockhart Stamp Company and Papertrey Ink

The Beach card:
I colored the center image with the Copic markers. The card was made the same process with this card I made before. When I made this card, I was really into making beach scenes! I thought it was a nice summer card.
The stamps are from Stampin' Up!

You can look all of the award winners here (the site is in Japanese only) Many stampers in Japan make the stamps with curving erasers. Some of them are unbelievably talented and make you wonder how they do that!
