Geisha Card

I love receiving Jan's cards in the mail.  Here she has used the Cheery Lynn Lattice Frame Die #114 in black card stock covering beautiful multi color Washi paper underneath.  There are hints of gold outline in the flowers on the Washi Paper (does not show up in the photo). 
The floral stamp is from Hampton Arts by Lynette Anderson Taylor Designer Flower. She stamped it on black card stock using Versamark Ink with gold embossing powder by Judikins. Those flowers are using Twinkling H2O's. Note this image is behind the lattice screen - the Lattice Frame is cut out for the image to be behind.
The Geisha image is a stamp: Bamboo and Butterfly Geisha by Inkadinkado #97878-DD. It is stamped on white card stock using black Versafine ink and clear embossing powder.  She is colored using Copics. And, when I get her cards, I frequently wonder: how'd she do that?  Well, on this image, she explains, she made a mask for the Geisha's dress and umbrella, then used a 'kewl Tool-course' to stipple gold paint.  Nice look!  I have to tell you her fussy cutting on this image (eliminated the butterflies) is really  perfect. 
And, inside the card............always a nice touch: the words friend (in Chinese)............
I am glad to be sharing this card with you today..........have yourself a crafty day!

OMGosh another fabulous card by the amazingly talented Jan! At first look, I thought that was washi paper behind the lattice...but no, she colored each of those blossoms?!!! Wow, Crazy! Lucky you to be the recipient of such a treasured work of art!
