Ok...on to the card for the challenge...lol! I used no other than the precious Geisha Anya (a digital stamp) from The Greeting Farm! I have always loved the Asian look...so I had to out-do myself! This card took me almost 3 hours to put together from beginning to end! WOW...a long time to sit...but worth it in the end! The card measures 9X4! I made 2 copies of Geisha to give some dimension to her kimono & flower! Can you believe I made the hair "pins" from toothpicks and colored them with a black Prisma marker??? How's that for using what you got...in the kitchen! LOL! The scroll was made using bamboo skewers! They're not for meat or veggies anymore! And how cool is that DP? The black is flocked!!! It feels so soft! I also used something else from my forgotten stuff...you see the tiny gold grains on the kimono belt (don't exactly know what they're called)? I had gotten that as a gift about 2 years ago!!! I keep opening boxes and keep finding stuff from EONS ago! Good thing I'm sticking to my resolution...well...at least this one! *rolls eyes* The smaller flowers are punched using Marvy Uchida punches. I don't know if you can tell on her face make-up...but I made it white using a milky white gel pen!!! LOL! I couldn't find my chalks! What I did was that I colored in her face with the gel pen little by little and "dabbed" it on using a Q-tip! I think that's what took the longest aside from the headware! Ahhh...I also used some "dusty" stamps from In Joy Rubber Stamps called Chinese Wishes. I hadn't used that in like 2 years as well! *puts head down* Anya was colored using Prismacolor markers. I plan on framing this card! Whatcha think?
