Oriental with mizhuiki knot
I wanted to have a go at mizhuiki, but didn't have the cords, so I improvised and used some scoobies! They actually work quite well, and especially if you are new to this, as they stay put while you get the others in place. I found it helped to stick down some small pieces of double sided tape to attach the ends to. Otherwise this was a very simple card- I used the Black with Gold flecks from PDA card & paper, Chinese Dragon stamp, and an Oriental character stamp. Both stamped in gold ink & embossed with Gold detail powder onto red card, then matted onto black, then gold textured card. Add a panel of Washi paper( Hobbycrafts) to the right of the card, mounted the main image offset to the left over this. Mounted the character to the lower left, and the mizhuiki knot with silicone glue.
I've added some links to sites with details on how to form mizhuiki knots, and also where to buy the proper cords.
