Asian Influenced Card

Here is a card that I recently submitted to CS Designs as Guest Designer for September.  It is another Asian card.  This is a card that was created with a classic style in mind.  The image is Framed Geisha 2 by CS Design.  She is colored with Copic markers.  The image is placed on a background of designer cardstock on which I did a technique call Cuttlebug Highlight using an embossing folder and gold ink.  As an added embellishment, I included a scroll made with a Spellbinder diecut.  Small thin corners of gold foil add a final touch.

I am submitting this in Crafty Boots' "Anything Goes" challenge.


  1. Love it, Vicki, it is awesome. Everything is lovely including the flourish at the bottom. Love the greens and blues and distressed backing paper.

    PS: Like your blog template as well - you know me and florishes and distressed backgrounds go really well together... lol.

  2. Vicki this is a great card - love your colouring of the image and the embossed background card just matches perfectly!!

  3. Wow!!! Vicki, this is an awesome card. Everything about it is fabulous. I love how every element of your card just seems to fit so perfectly together. Thanks for the inspiration, the background is so very cool and will definitely have to try this.
