Kokeshi Flop Book

In store today is our demonstration day so we hope you can come and join us.

This is the front cover of my Flop book where I started with Flirty girl in the middle, I then masked her and stamped Lucky Cat and Dancing Girl. I then masked them as well and stamped China Girl and Bunny Hug. These were also masked before I stamped the Weeping Willow. I stippled some clouds using more Eclipse Masking tape. I coloured the dolls using Chalk Pencils.
The background is the Weeping Willow stamped in Versamark and then when dry I covered with a light purple inkpad. I then stamped the Japanese background stamp using a dark purple inkpad.
The fans have been stamped with a dye based inkpad and then coloured with a waterbrush from the same inkpad.
The page of China Girls was created using Eclipse masking tape.

Again the Lucky Cat page has been created by using lots of masks. and the fan page was created in the same way as the previous fan page. Paper Cord added for embellishment.

This is the back of my Flop book.
