Geisha Girl

This is fun. For the first time since becoming a Creator at Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet, I've actually been assigned one of my own digi stamps to create with for the One Stitch at a Time challenge blog. :)
 
The theme of the new challenge is Use a Digi and my OSAAT teamie Jane picked my Geisha Girl digi as the image for us to work with this week.
 
 
It was a lot of fun creating with one of my own images. :) I've been doing quite a bit of "proper" drawing lately and the thought occurred to me that digi stamps might look quite nice shaded with pencil, rather than coloured in. And I thought this pretty geisha image might be just perfect to try this idea out on:
 
 
I think she looks rather lovely in black and white. :)
 
I teamed her with one of my favourite die-cut frames (a Sizzix die)...
 
 
...and some gorgeous oriental-themed papers by Dovecraft which I've been jealously hoarding (and occasionally forcing myself to actually use) for quite some time! :D
 
 
I finished things off with some thin black ribbon and a couple of pearls.
 
The challenge runs for a week and you can use any kind of digital element (doesn't have to be a Stitchy Bear one) to enter - digi papers, digi stamps, computer-generated sentiments etc. Entries using a Stitchy Bear product will be in with a chance to win our main prize and entries without a Stitchy Bear product will be entered into the draw to win a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.

Yes, I agree, she does look good in black and white and that background is beautiful. Hazel x

Ali, you've transported me back in time and I'm imagining a young gentleman with his pen and sketchbook in hand whiling away time drawing his favourite Geisha lady in a very upper class salon. I love the elegance that you have created with your artistic skills and the beautiful papers. Love Ingrid xxx
