Greetings from a Geisha

Hello.  Welcome.  The hot weather continues and the birthdays keep rolling on.  Here's one I made for a friend.  

I used PaperBabes MaryLeeDee Kimono clear stamp and my design was inspired by their mood board.

I had previously inked this panel with distress inks in a random sort of way and didn't like it, but it seemed to work for me today!!  I cut it with Poppystamps Diamond Background and stuck it all back together on a dark green card base.  

I stamped embossed and fussy cut the geisha and coloured her with Promarkers and gel pens.  I die cut Poppystamps Hampstead Bloom using green and blue card and added some red rhinestones to the flowers.  The happy birthday is from Happy Little Stampers Birthday Friends stamp set.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
