Geisha ATC

I was recently asked to be a Visiting Artist at the Gingersnap Creations blog for the month of April. This month's theme is The Far East, and the first challenge of the month has the more specific theme of Geishas. So I created this Geisha ATC.

Geisha Altered Art

I started with an ATC size (2-1/2" x 3-1/2") piece of heavy paper that came in a paper elements pack from K & Company. It has some lines on it and the butterfly.  I distressed the edges with a bit of red ink. Then I stamped on the Asian text using black ink. Next I created the Geisha image by stamping it onto some card stock and then embossing it. Then I attached it to the ATC in relief using a piece of foam core. I added a red flower gem to her hair for a pop of color. I also added a piece of scrap burlap for some texture, along with a flower element that I added some more gems to. And I finished it off by stamping out the letters to spell g-e-i-s-h-a.
