Geisha Girl - AFA DT Post

Hi everyone! This week over at Anyone for Anya the theme is Asian Element. I grabbed the Geisha Girl over at CC Designs and had a lot of fun colouring her up! I love her sweet kimono and hair accessories :) I used the March sketch over at I Heart 2 Stamp as inspiration for my layout...I changed up the extent of the background square, turned the rectangle into a circle, and used my flowers as the circle embellishment :)



I have used some gorgeous papers from My Mind's Eye - these are prob my new faves! I've also used some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a paper butterfly from my stash, and some black rhinestones from Kaisercraft. I distressed all of the papers using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo.



^^ This photo is kind of a weird angle but I was too lazy to retake LOL! I coloured up Geisha using copic markers, and these are the colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E53 E00, E11, R11
Hair: C3, 0, B60
Kimono: (Red) YR02, R22, R05, R29 (Brown) E31, E35

Don't forget to play along this week as there are some great prizes up for grabs! :D

Thanks for stopping by!
