I am part of the making-greeting-cards.com yahoo group and Flora sent out some stamped images as a challenge for us to make a card with it. It was good to see the variety of interpretations of the image. For me, after I had colored her with watercolor pencils, she just looked joyous. I wanted to put some kind of Chinese writing but not knowing Chinese didn't know what to do. I found a site that had some; this says "dance" I hope. Inside, I put "dance like nobody's watching".
This was a fun challenge. I really like the way she turned out. Simple.
I thought that "cheongsam" was a place, but it is one name for the traditional Chinese dress. This is a more modern variation. I learned that I know very little about China. :) Now with the Olympics is a great time to get more educated!
By the way, if you click on the picture, you can see every little imperfection!
