Our new challenge starts today on the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog with the theme of Crop It!
For those of you who know me, and my recent computer situation, you're aware that this post is sort of a miracle, as for once I worked ahead and had this completed before the crash. Yay, me! I've used the adorable Little Kitsune Anko (simple version) available HERE on AW.com and HERE (jpg only) on Etsy. I thought this little cutie would be adorable not only peeking out from behind her fox mask, but also a very detailed fan cut with a die by Tattered Lace from specialty crinkle matte gold paper. I've made a little tassel from two shades of red floss to dress up the end. The screen die behind her is Die-versions. The card is triple matted in the colors of her kimono and the corners dressed up with Asian inspired stickers and a small sticker sentiment.
Here's a closeup of Little Kitsune Anko (simple version) available HERE on AW.com and HERE (jpg only) on Etsy. I chose the simple version so I could paper piece the sleeves of her kimono with one of the papers from the Mori Girl paper pack by Gecko Galz.
I printed a cropped version of her arms and mask twice so I could pop them for dimension. Her face and mask were colored with Copics. I've positioned her arms and mask closer to her face so that she looks like she is peeking out from behind. Kitsune is the word for fox in Japanese and is a frequent character in in Japanese folklore. This fantasy creature can have up to nine tails depending on her age, wisdom and power. This little chickie is just a beginner, I'd say having only one tail so far (and it's cropped out!)
If you'd prefer to have fun with coloring a more detailed version of her kimono, you can find the fancy version HERE on AW.com and HERE on Etsy. Either way, I think she's a doll, don't you?
