Geisha Girl

Well, it's been awhile again since I posted. Busy summer, that's all I can say!

My card today is for the One Layer Simplicity challenge 19-Strip Down-mask a strip down the front of your card and stamp away! Will also enter in the following challenges: Crafty Cardmakers #146-no patterened papers; Get creative challenge #22-no printed papers; Marker Pop challenge #76-Anything goes using markers

I really need to look into a new camera. The one I have just does not do this justice. But it is what it is, right?

I first stamped the geisha girl in momento black, then stamped again on post-it masking tape and cut it out. I placed it over the stamped image on card base and then masked the strip down the front and added Pebbles chalks to form a soft background. I removed the masks and colored the image with Copic markers.  

I added some clear Wink of Stella marker to the flowers on the umbrella and kimono, but my camera doesn't capture it well.
