Geisha


Hello! I'm popping in for a quik post. I made this last night and had fun making it. Most of the supplies used were purchased from Hanko Designs back in October or November and I just now had a chance to use them. The paper is called pink Tsumugi cs. Broke out the un-used Kodomo wood mounted stamps and Kodomo foam stamps. The image to the left named "Chinese borders" includes the two stamps (top one and lower right corner) I used to make the border and the other set of stamps are foam stamps named "Chrysanthemum set". I paired them up with Geisha Anya from The Greeting Farm. I just love this little gal. My very first card I received that featured a TGF image was this little girl. She's one of my favorites. I colored her using the black/white on kraft cs tutorial from Jen Shults again. I wanted sorta vintage and this was the easiest way to go. I also colored some of the flowers using the same coloring. I embossed the pink Tsumugi cs (also purchased from Hanko) using one of my Japanese Cuttlebug folders to give it more texture. (Hope you can see it.) After cutting out all the images I popped them here and there. The borders, flowers, even the flower in Geisha's hair was popped. I punched out some small flowers to hide where the border images come together and I tried to make them look similar to the chrysanthemum's. I gemmed them and colored using Copics, so yes I did use some Copic coloring in this card but very little. Here are some angles of the card to see where all the popping occured...

I'm thinking of submitting this for the FFF over at TGF. I think it qualifies. Hope you all have a great Tuesday!! I'm outtie for now!
Hugs,
Leanne
