Geisha in Distress
I've not had much time to craft this week - having a heavy week at work and also building work at home, I've been struggling to stay awake past 9.30! So I've made myself stay up tonight as I feel grumpy when I don't get time to craft!
The geisha and the background paper are from Debbi Moore oriental CD and I decided to grunge them up. I sponged 'Antique Linen' ink pad over the geisha image and then melted multiple layers of clear embossing powder over the top. My intention was to crack it but it wouldn't crack!! So instead I randomly stamped a crackle stamp over the top of the ep. I coloured the edges with a gold pen.
I crumpled up the background paper and distressed it using black ink, water and a distresser tool. I added an oriental charm that was part of a lovely prize package I won a while back from CD Sunday . I have no idea what it says so hope it's not inappropriate!
I'd like to enter:

Eclectic Ellapu vintage
Creative Card Crew charm
Addicted to stamps anything goes
