Geisha Gal

“Geisha Gal”

Oriental is the theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight!

While sitting and wondering what on earth I was going to do, a girlfriend rang and asked me if I could make a Japanese card for her to give to a friend.
Go figure!!!
So, there was no getting out of it….

When I gave it some thought about what makes a card oriental,
 I kept coming up with red, gold and panels.
And I know that sounds simplistic, but at least it was a starting point. 

The fans are stamped onto some glossy card that has been worked with AI’s.
Then UTEE’d, with some flecks of gilding flakes added between layers.
The panels are worked up with barn door and wild honey DI’s, water splattered, sprayed with forever red glimmer mist and then stamped on.
The geisha girl panel was stamped first, masked, and then the colour added afterwards!
She was carefully coloured with copics.
(scary moment!)

A little bit of kindy glitz here and there, a tussle or two added, and the card is done!

Please, pop on over to FSC and checkout the awesomeness of the fashionettes…
So many different ideas on what is oriental! All sure to inspire you to join in the fun.
