Glorious Geisha

Hi there 🙂 I was thrilled to be asked to be a Guest Designer at Arty Divas today. It’s a wonderful challenge ATG challenge blog with amazing inspiration from the design team. Thank you so much for inviting me to join you <3

I chose to use an image by Sheepski Designs, called Gorgeous Geisha, for my project. I picked my papers before I colored her up with my Copics, so I could match things up nicely.

I started layering the papers I’d picked out beforehand, and really wasn’t “feeling” the result, until I added the black border die cut and black mats. This really seemed to tie things together well. I die cut the asian inspired elements, the bird and the branch of blossoms with an assortment of different manufacturers dies, and arranged them on the card layers. To cut down on the starkness of the black border piece, I dabbed a paintbrush over a gold ink pad and lightly dusted it with the gold. Love the final result…and it’s flat, for easy mailing, which is an added bonus!!! Once again, I’d like to thank Arty Divas for asking me to guest design for them, and encourage you all to check out their fabulous blog!!
