I cannot believe that I am now entering my third term on the Gingersnaps Creations design team. Pop along to the blog and see the newest DT members and contributing artists. This month, April we have a new overriding theme - the Far East; and this month's Chestnut challenge is "Geisha". Now I dont have any oriental stash at all - so I called upon Christine Costello (what would I do without her!) who kindly allowed me use of her Stampington Puccini Muse - this is one gorgeous stamp!
Puccini was stamped onto tissue paper, which I had sprayed with a selection of gold, olive and raspberry coloured mists - though I do like texture think I may have been a little heavy handed with the PVA. Oriental charms were added to finish along with a sentiment. This is my first easel card - sure it will not be my last as I did enjoy it and I have seen some amazing easel cards out there in blogland that I can only hope to aspire to ... but we all have to start somewhere! I think it because I don't over embellish ... and use mainly inks and paints but maybe I should invest in some embellies because I always gush when I see them!
Gingersnaps - you have a whole month to post your work!
