Oriental Lady



I've had this lovely Personal Impressions stamp for ages and decided it was time to get her out for a play.  I treated myself to the new limited edition Promarkers at the weekend and had itchy fingers to use them.  They're beautiful muted colours and a couple of them are fab for pale skin tones.  This image was coloured with a mixture of Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
I bought a lovely pack of Papermania oriental papers at the SECC in October which until now remained unopened.  Some of them are bold and bright but I decided to use this more subtle one.  The plain, neutral cardstock is Papermania Capsule Collection and the blue card is textured metallic effect from Payper Box.
The corner die is Marianne and is so useful.  The leafy border punch is Martha Stewart and the embossing folder I've used is Cuttlebug.
I've added some texture with raffia and finished the card with a coin charm and a few pearls.

I'm entering this card in the following in the following challenges -
The stamp Man - texture
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
