Gingersnap challenges


Fans are the theme for the random red head challenge over at http://gingersnapcreations.blogspot.com/2011/04/gc99-random-redhead-challenge-fans.html AND red and gold are the color challenges AND because they have been following an eastern theme, with Geishas this card came about. My Geisha is from my supply of "OLD" stamps designed by Judikins. I stamped on printed paper for her kimono and on gold for her fans. The large fan in the background is also an oldie but goodie, but I failed to label it way back when and my memories is toooo full of junk to remember who created it. LOL I embossed the gold background and added some oriental paper I found stuffed in a drawer. It is all layered onto a red card. The large fan was stamped onto tracing paper and the colored with ink. It stared out as a mask to do some back ground stamping and then I went a different direction :O





This second card was made for the Geisha challenge, but alas I didn't get it posted in time.


This image was from an image swap, so creator is unknown to me.
I colored her with pencil and layered her on different blues, adding a pot of burgundy. The Japanese characters are from Hero Arts. A 3-D sticker at the top and a metal fan at the bottom finished the card.

Thanks for taking a look, and I do apologise for not posting very often. Spring is a very busy "family" time for us, and this year I am working at a different job that REQUIRES a set of headphones that strap you to a pc, so I'm not always ready to come home and sit back down in front of our pc. BUT I have been stamping...........just not posting LOL
