Default Japan - Tea - by DCinkit - Friday, Dec. 11 - 8 pm EST - DEC15VSND

Challenge Title: Japan for Tea
Hostess: Diane ~ DCinkit
Keyword: DEC15VSND
Date: December 11, 2015
Time: 9:00 pm EST

Konnichiwa.

Hello. We have now reached Japan in our journey around the world.

Before we had kids, my husband and I hosted Japanese Foreign Exchange Students on several occasions, which led me to choose this country. We made friends among the students & the host families and enjoyed the activities we all did together.

The challenge is to honor Japanese by recognizing their tea ceremony. At the basic level, the Japanese tea ceremony is a gathering of friends in order to share in a ceremonial event. It can be a causal occasion to a more formal ritual.

Use any images of teacups or teapots or your own idea. Your image does not have to be an Asian style and can be a western or English style if need be.

Bonus ~ add the sugar: Make it a friendship card

If youd like to further recognize the Japanese culture/style in your creation, consider these ideas: (choose any if desired)

CAS style Make it Clean and Simple

Color feature bold, bright colors or soft pinks & greens

Minimal foliage use subtle fern leaf, bonsai tree, cherry blossom branch

Flowers from the simple flower blossom to the exotic are in Japan

Origami paper especially if its from Japan

Asian type design stamp create your own DSP or background

Sentiment use Japanese words or Asian style font


Be sure to tell us in your card description how you were inspired by the Japanese tea ceremony and/or friendship.

Doumo arigatou. Thanks a lot.

Wonderful cards so far!! Thank you for participating in my challenge. I am off to bed after a nice hot cup of (decaf) tea - not feeling too well. I'll be back in the morning to catch up with commenting in the gallery and making some of my own cards.

Have fun on your stamping trip around the world!!

Diane, this was fun! I hadn't used my Asian stamps for quite awhile. And I had an Asian paper stack that I had only used once.

Loved using these old stamp sets, and I have always loved Asian themed anything.
