A Geisha and some Gingko

Happy Wednesday everyone! I guess by the time you read this the day is probably almost over. Late post, sorry.

This project was a lot of fun to make. After I decided what DP I wanted to use, I then picked my Copic colors. I was stumped on a layout so I headed over the Splitcoast Stampers and picked out SC#278. This one was perfect because I wanted to keep Chris’s design of Geisha2 square and I also wanted to incorporate Stamp Zia’s gingko leaf stamp. After I colored all of my elements I made them 3D with foam tape. (Photos really do not show that.) The DP is really had to see because it’s covered but it is the actual bottom layer.


Being a part of Chris Stern’s design team has been wonderful. Her designs help me think out of my box and are so inspirational. Please take a few minutes and check out her images.

Also, CS Designs is having it’s first challenge. Check it out here and you really don’t want to miss out on this one! There are so many chances to win!
