Asian Theme

As I've often admitted before, I'm addicted to papers--primarily designer/patterned papers.  I buy the 6x6 or 8x8 pads when I can, and I have a deep dresser drawer filled to the brim.  There are more in a box on the floor.  That doesn't stop me from loving new releases, though.   With the 8x8 Graphic 45 Bird Song pad, I made the following cards.   It had been awhile since I'd used some of my Asian-themed stamps, too.   All of the cards feature paper from the pad. Stamped images are from About Art Accents (Keiko)  and Stampington's Imperial Cargo line (the two larger images at the right), and Inkadinkado (the ginkgo leaves).   Two backgrounds for the stamping were created with alcohol inks and canned air; the geishas were colored with watercolor markers.

Hello Evelyn,
I love graphic 45 papers, and birdsong is no exception, combining them with geisha images is unique, but it works.
All four cards are beautiful in their own way, interesting and complex.
Smiles :-)
