My Fantastic Followers:)

I absolutely love anything Japanese..(even though I have never been there).. I love their lifestyle, their art, interesting food and the Geisha! I have always been fascinated by Geisha women and their traditional dress and makeup. The colours are always so striking and breathtaking.  So I couldn't miss out in making a card for SISTERHOOD OF CRAFTERS   
Japanese challenge..and if you missed out on seeing my other Japanese card that matched my red room click here so you can view it...
This card is more of an artsy type although I stamped the background with some Japanese stamps I had in my stash, used a black and white image and then coloured parts of her clothing with BG49 AND BO6 copic markers to give a striking effect. I also used a fan I bought from a Japanese shop and coloured parts of with a black copic marker. I also used dimensional magic for the flowers and her dress.
Well I hope you like it and as always thanks so much for visiting me!
