Red Geisha

Here is my card for this weeks Secret Crafter Challenge of White and one other colour not encluding the image. I like Oriental designs a lot but I don't do as many as I would like to.

The tree is a Sweet Poppy stencil and black embossing paste with a little bit of glitter thrown in.

The Geisha is stamped and coloured with Tria alchohol pens. Then I have cut here out and popped her on the card. The Card base and layers are cut out with large dies, I have used a punch just to decorate the corners of the picture and a bow to finish it off.

I have also entered this card into the following challenges;
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Delightful Sketches - Autumn Colours
Prairie Fairy - Suger and Spice
The Artistic Stamper - Autumn Colours
Marianne Design Divas - Dying to Die Cut
Cute Card Thursday - Tree-mendous
