Here is a card for Sunday's Featured Stamper Challenge. Featured stamper is Julie. Check her gallery out, she has lots of inspiration and great cards. I was drawn to the colors she used in this Geisha.
I used the same digital stamp from "The Greeting Farm" and colored it with Copic markers. Flower was colored a separate time and then added some clear liquid embossing and popped it up with double sided foam tape on top of the first flower. Used paper from the Fleuriste paper pad of Cosmo Cricket for the background. Distressed the edges with Walnut stain and a distressing tool. Added some dragon flies from the Kimono Silk stamp set of Hero arts, just behid the Geisha which was mounted onto a beige cs that was cut with the Labels 1 nesty. Used a scallop stitch on my sewing machine for the edges of the card. And finally added a cut-up flower and decorative brad on the corner of the background paper.
