Visiting Japan at The Sisterhood

Hiya folks!

'Tis me again. Second post of the day, scroll down for The Creative Cottage

This week over at The Sisterhood Of Crafters we are travelling across the globe to the island of Japan. What do you think of when you need something Japanese? Dragons, Blossom, Geisha, chopsticks?? The possibilities are endless folks!

I chose to use a couple of my images for my card. These are available for purchase in my shop, Delicious Doodles. My little Oriental Geisha was paper-pieced and printed a couple of times for the layering, as well as on blank paper for my watercolouring. The Waterlilies here are actually taken from my Waterlily image, and has been cut up and moved about a bit to fit the side. The papers are from a Debbie Moore cd.

I added some bling by spreading some metallic gold rub on around the edges of the card, and by dotting some dimension paint in the corners. Real simple, but I think it's quite effective, what do you think?? Does it need some ribbon. . .?

My sistah's have come up with some yummy goodies again this week. Head over to The Sisterhood for a looky!!
