Challenge 4 at the library has Memoirs of a Geisha as it’s inspiration book. I have not read this one and know nothing about it. However you do not have to know the book to take part in the challenge because you can use the cover as inspiration.
With such a striking cover I went with the colours for my card and got out my very old acrylic stamps. It was good to get back to physical stamps rather than digi stamps for a change.
Oriental lady and writting acrylic stamps from stash (not sure of origin but may be Dimension Fourth and they are now sadly out of business)
X-Press It card
red and black card
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
white 7×5″ card blank
black Polychromo pencil for lady’s hair
skin – E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
kimono – R29, R39, R59, R89
C3, C5, C7, C9, 100
The lady and writing are stamped with the black ink, coloured in and trimmed down. The panel is then edged with a gold pen before matting and layering on red and black card.
If any of you have read Memoirs of a Geisha I would love to know what you thought of it.
Thanks for dropping in. Take care.
