Turning Japanese

Good Morning All, I can't believe its the 1st of September already, this year is just flying by, I thought I have have a little play with this fun oriental image from Sherri Baldy, I have coloured her with my Graph'It markers, backing papers and card are all from a great pack I got in Lidl some time ago, Tim Holts die cut butterfly border, the rose, the coin & gems are all from my stash.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

How darling, Kevin - and such a great use of the butterflies to give that Asian feel! This is a beautiful box - incredible how you still were able to use butterflies, ribbons, bows and blingy pearls to give this such an Asian Flair! Your coloring is amazing. hugs, de

Teresa Arsenault said...

Kevin, I saw this on my Ipad last night and knew I had to come by and comment this morning. This is absolutely gorgeous. I love how you coloured her bow to look so shiny. And is that an authentic Japanese coin? My mother had one in her jewellery box when I was little. My father had given it to her and I guess he obtained it during his duty in WWII. Mum was a war bride from Scotland. They met in England while he was on leave and she was working in a munitions factory.
