Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
They're here! These adorable stamps from The Greeting Farm are finally in at Summer's store, Roses on Paper! I absolutely adore every one of them and can't wait to play and create with them. I couldn't resist getting some of the digital stamps and this Geisha Anya is too adorable. Doesn't she look so quiet, yet confident? I sure wish I was like that sometimes! The Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge over at PCP offered up this movie to watch for inspiration for a card. The heroine in the movie, played by the beautiful Michelle Yeoh, inspired this card. I can just see her pushing this kimono off her shoulders and kicking some serious butt!
She fits into a couple of different challenges I was working on. The layout is from the sketch from the Jacksonbelle Sketch Challenge blog, and for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge group. I colored her with copics and highlighted her with my gold Spica glitter pen and white opaque pen. I also used some Center Kisses on the corners and on the flower in her hair. The gold is pale and the ruby in the corners are very dark so they don't show up as well in my picture, but they're just beautiful to work with.
I hope you enjoy these cuties. I know I am! Don't forget to participate in our Design Team Challenge on our blog. Our extremely talented, Peta, but out a great challenge. I'd hate for you to miss out on the opportunity to win a little bit of shopping dollars. And you need to stop by Summer's PCP Store group to read her exciting news!
And I just want to remind everyone that we launching a new illustrator and stamp line over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! You can get the opportunity to win a great little shopping dollars and wait until you see the images! They're very fresh, and exciting! Stop over and take a peek! Lots going on everywhere!
