a card with Geisha Anya

I received this Geisha Anya image from a very sweet dear friend. My order of some new Copics also just arrived on the same day, so I couldn't wait to color her!!

This card is based on the sketch of the I Wanna be Just Like... challenge at the Club Anya blog. I think the colors of her kimono may have made her a little more "grown-up"... I really really enjoyed coloring her. She is so on my list!!

I have had these Japanese Washi sitting around for a while and I thought that they would be great with this Geisha Anya. Just a little worried that it might look a little too busy... What do you think?

ingredients used:
cardstock: Papertrey Ink
patterned papers: Japanese Washi
stamps: The Greeting Farm, Hero Arts (sentiment)
markers: Copic
ink: Memento
brads: Making Memories
gem: Heidi Swapp
white gel pen: Uni-ball Signo
die cutting machine: CuttleBug
dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four

Thanks for stopping by!
