Avoiding some new paper...

Can you believe I've had the new Basic Grey collection Sublime sitting here on my desk for almost a week now? I was itching to get into it, but I didn't want to "play" until I knew it was going to be good. Tossing away mess-ups might have been BG abuse! *giggle*I based this card on a scrapbook LO I saw online and also the new Blogger Bingo sketch. I love that geisha photo stamp and I rarely have a chance to use it. Recently, I've kept it out and visible to remind me to use it on a card. Last night I stamped it in a brown color on glossy paper and then flipped through my pad of Basic Grey paper and pulled a few out sheets. I fiddled a bit and came up with this! Please excuse my faux pas on using a Japanese image with Chinese characters. *shrug* I have no Japanese "writing" stamps.

I hope this isn't too much of a stretch compared to Julee's Bingo sketch, but I followed the major guidelines and rounded the corners of the image piece! And I added the character stamps on the left! *keeping fingers crossed*

Supplies: Stamps are Oxford Impressions (geisha) and All Night Media (Chinese characters). Paper is Basic Grey and SU CS. Ink is Versamark and Memories. Accessories: ribbon from reallyreasonableribbon.com, Cat's EP, Zig marker, signo gel pen, MM paper piercer.

Dana....this card is just beautiful!
I've been to your site before and you were on vacation and had a guest blogger. What caught my eye was something about trying raw foods or vegetables. I also liked the pharaoh card you made. It was awesome!
