A Taste of The Orient.....

Hello lovelies, NICOLA here today with a project for you.

I have made a card today using a gorgeous image from Sherri Baldy which you can buy HERE I absolutely loved My Bestie Cherry Blossom Geisha as soon as I saw her. I wanted to colour her using reds and greys and tried to make her hair kinda black. Now colouring hair dark is not my best thing but I will keep trying to perfect this. You know what they say, practise makes perfect!

So, onto my card and then I will give you the list of colours I have she is....

I have used Letraset Promarkers in shades:
Skin: Putty ~ Almond ~ Dusky Pink ~ Sunkissed Pink
Hair: Warm Grey 3 ~ Ice Grey 4 ~ Ice Grey 5 ~ Cool Grey 4 ~ Cool Grey 5 ~ Black
Clothes: Ice Grey 2 ~ Ice Grey 3 ~ Warm Grey 2 ~ Poppy ~ Crimson ~ Berry Red ~ Ruby ~ Forest Green ~ Warm Grey 1
I couldn't resist embellishing with these black flowers and the sparkly blossoms, I think they go really well with the colours of the image.
Don't forget we have a challenge which you can enter over at the
