Geisha Dreams

I haven't created many oriental themed cards for a while and I do so love anything oriental! 

I recently bought the new Asian Bundle set of Cuttlebug embossing folders and these have prompted me to go oriental with a few projects.  I used two of the folders for this card, the cherry blossom embossed on gold mirri card for the background layer and the Geisha embossed on red card for the main image.  After embossing, I dragged a gold Brilliance ink pad across the layer and the raised areas collected more of the ink, highlighting the image.

The Let's Get Stamping challenge on this week gave us a sketch and a twist of not using a stamped image, on our card.  So this card fits that challenge perfectly.  The requirement to have some stamping on the card was met by the stamped sentiment which is from The Greetings Farm.

The flowers were punched from piece of japanese paper I have in my stash using a Martha Stewart punch, with a flower shaped bead added to the centre of each one.

I added a piece of black card under the red image layer, rounded all the corners and the card was done, without a single bit of colouring - most unusual for me these days!!!

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you'll stop by again on monday when the Queen Kat Designs Blog Hop is happening and my blog is one of those you'll visit along the way.
