I was telling my friend Samara that I think I have done myself in with all the holiday yummies. I think the up and down sugar buzzes have zapped my crafting energy. Good thing I made this ahead of time. LOL
Our challenge this week at Papercraft Star is "Tea or Coffee". I won some digis a while back from Cardmadfairy and I picked out this beautiful geisha. She's colored with Copics. I printed her fan out on vellum and colored it with Copics also. She has a piece of torn mulberry paper under her. The cool oriental writing is one of three images I used from the Oriental Backgrounds (112) digital sheet from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay. I didn't have anything to hang the tag from in my light box so I hung it on my Christmas tree so you could see the tassle I added at the bottom. You have to look closely cause it didn't photograph well with the lighting.
The back of the tag has a large mat of more of the oriental writing from the digital sheet. I added two pockets for tea bags and printed the third image to decorate the top pocket.
Here's a close up shot of the little geisha so you can see her fan better. Hope you can play along this week. :-)
