Try A Sketch on Tuesday ~ Challenge #645

We have a new sketch at Try A Sketch On Tuesday, which we hope will inspire you to get crafty. Here's the sketch.

Here's my take on the sketch

I made this card for a friend who was traveling to Japan to wish here a good vacation and safe travels. I made the "background" red and gold paper. I started with Local King Rubber Stamp's Chinese Symbol (1) background stamp and some red cardstock. I heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder. I then dusted off my Creative Memories' Custom Cutting System to cut the curved edge with one of the Creative Memories' blades. I adhered it to a light gray A2 card panel and trimmed the edges. For my little geisha, I used a un-named Japanese stamp set. I stamped the girl with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added color with Copic markers - E50, G82, R22, R32, Y15, YG67 and fussy cut her. For the sentiment, which sadly is not so visible, I used Waffle Flower's Konnichiwa stamp set and gold embossing powder. The sentiment says "konnichiwa" which translates to hello. I glued the girl into place with tape runner and then adhered the A2 panel to a white A2 card base to complete my card.

We'd love to see how you were inspired by our sketch in our gallery.
