Circle Lanterns Mid-Autumn Festival

Circle Lanterns Mid-Autumn Festival
Mid-Autumn Festival is coming and I made this mini card for my horizontal manager where I will include it with the mooncake.

Since I do not have much lanterns related stamp sets, I decided to use digital stamp which I come across few years back on Chinese New Year Blog Hop. It is Avery Elle lanterns which available as freebie now on their challenge blog. The Avery Elle lanterns is perfect for the mid-autumn festival although it actually meant for Chinese New Year.

Close-up: The shimmer from clear glitter Wink of Stella
I color the lanterns in watercolor pencil colors and used the clear glitter Wink of Stella to create the watercolor effect. The shimmer from Wink of Stella is just perfect mimicking the light from inside the lanterns. I tried to use Copic markers to color the lanterns but the effect is not as good as watercolor pencil colors. By the way, I am using my daughter's watercolor pencil colors! :P

The lanterns is attached on top of a white polka dots with green background pattern paper which attached onto a blue card base. I choose blue card base because this card is for a male manager.

Dimension : 7.62cm x 7.62cm or 3" x 3"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : None
