Midnight Madness Challenge Week 12 - MMSC12

Happy Friday to all of you,

After a few days for not doing any paper crafts, I think I should really get some cards done. Today, I didn't use a Magnolia stamp, but instead using Anya from the Greeting Farm just in case you get tired of my friend Tilda, lol. I am doing this card for the Midnight Madness Challenge for Week #12.

I received this image from an image swap I participated a while ago. I still have quite a few stamps that I never get a chance to use them yet. Oh well....

Since today's image (Anya) has her Kimono outfit, I wanted to stay in an Asia theme. I remembered a few years ago when I went travelling in Japan, I bought a little foam flowers stamp set from a craft store, but never get a chance to use them. Therefore, I used this set for the very first time on this card. Be honest with you, the quality of this set is pretty bad. However, I managed to use it, but not sure if I would use it again????!!!

Here is this week's sketch for the Midnight Madness Challenge.
Here is my finished card:


Here is a closer view to show the way I did my ribbon. I kind of cross weaved it.

Closer view on the image coloring. Couldn't color her without putting eye shadow for her. LOL

Here is the stamp set I got from Japan:

Closer view on the flowers using the above stamp set.

Ok, that's all I have for you for today. I would like to show you where I hold all my copic markers next time. See you soon!

I saw your message over at the Club Anya message board and came to check out your card. Your coloring is fabulous! Geisha Anya is my favorite of all the Anya's. I have some of these foam stamps too. I've never tried them, so you have me wondering now. Hope you do more Anya's soon.

What a lovely pairing of colors, red purple, and a unique way of tying the ribbons on the side. Love your details, Cabio. I'm a big fan of anything Asian. Lol. Thanks for sharing your talent with us, hugs~Jeni & MMSC DT
