Sister Stamp's New Year's Release - Day 1 Kiyoko

Hi there everyone!  Are you excited about the upcoming Sister Stamps release on November 1?  This is  going to be another fun release and the images are like no others I've seen!  Today I'm featuring the playful Kiyoko who is participating in some local New Year's activities with her fun sparklers.  

I enjoy decorating our home for various holidays, but I didn't have anything for New Year's so I decided to make a wall hanging.  I created it to look like a scroll and cut down a long 3/8" width dowel (5-1/2" pieces) to anchor the top and bottom of the scroll.  I found the perfect washi paper for the background and secured the dowels with always reliable Scor-tape. I paper pieced the kimono with washi paper and embossed a bamboo image on the red cardstock (no sure if you can see it in this photo).  So happy to have something to ring in the new year!
