Geisha Kitty!!!


On Julee's blog this morning she asked if you had ever made a card that you were really excited about......well this is that card for me!!! I wasn't sure what I was going to do when I started but the finished product makes me happy!!!

I started out using one of my new Pink Cat Studio stamps, Geisha Kitty from Plate #2. Then I thought I would stay with the Asian theme and I grabbed my Far East stack by DCWV. I used that as my starting point and chose my SU markers from there. I also chose a fabulous sketch from SCS, SC105. I get so much inspiration from the sketch challenges.

I stamped the kitty in black Stazon ink on shimmery white paper and coloured in the kitty and her beautiful outfit using Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Baroque Burgundy (retired), Mellow Moss and So Saffron. Then I used my black Sakura Glaze pen to do the dots around the edge, matted it in Baroque Burgundy and Basic Black. Then I cut my Far East paper using my cutting system by Creative Memories. I also cut the Basic Black and So Saffron to mat the original circle. I used Baroque Burgundy for the card base and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Stylized Flower folder. Then I sponged over the embossed flowers with BB ink. I used my square punch to cut a square out of So Saffron and cut it in half, then did three dots on each and placed them in the corners. I added some yummy Prima flowers and an antique copper brad, pop dotted the main image and THAT is my favourite card EVER!!! Well, at least until I make another cool one!! Heehee!! Hope you like her!!

BTW, I didn't know (or remember) that you are from St. Thomas...my parents live there! And I have been in that small library I think you work at! Is Jumbo still falling down the hill?

Kim, this card is great. I so wish you could do classes that include stuff other than Stampin Up. But, your blog helps there. Soo cute!!
God bless. Linda
