All things Asian.........

that's this month's challenge theme over at Die Cut Divas.  Last night I had a tidy up of my Digi images and came across a little Geisha Girl which I got from Sliekje stamps.  I printed it out and made this card..
I coloured it with Copics and Bic Markers and then cut it with a Spellbinders Labels 4 die. Leaving the die on the cut out piece I lightly sponged with blue ink - leaving a white edge on the cutout.  I cut a piece of Washi paper to fit the card base and then added the piece of lime green bazzil to the side with some Washi Tape.  I used a Stampin' Up! sentiment - but didn't notice till I saw the photo that it was stamped crooked.  - Never mind... adds to the hand made character of the card!!!!  ( so says me!!!)

Well that's it more now.... thanks for stopping by. 
PS - 4 weeks today!!!!!   Bought new suitcases in the weekend... now just to make the list of what to take....
