Edited: I thought the eyes needed a bit of highlighting, so I've coloured them with a glitter gel pen. I think it looks better this way.

I used the new Heidi Grace printed paper that I bought yesterday, and all of the stamps, except the 'birthday' word, are the Heidi Grace clear stamps. The 'birthday' word is by Stampa Rosa. I added a pearl and some purple Kaiser gems to the stamped flower centre. I don't normally use a lot of printed paper on my cards, but I like the colours and how this came out.

The geisha and the flower stamp are by Stonehouse Stamps, the kanji is by Pink Cat Studio. I've kept the backgrounds on both cards fairly plain, so the main image would be the focus of the cards.
This geisha is another Stonehouse Stamp. I've just added some punched Sakura flowers and a white brad at the bottom of the card. These cards are very shimmery, you probably cant see that from the photos though.

This one uses part of a Cuttlebug embossed hearts piece, inked with a darker blue, The letters are from a Hampton Arts alphabet set and the border stamp used at the top is by Kelly Panacci.
This one uses a Cuttlebug embossed piece, swiped with white ink. The round tag is also a Cuttlebug one. The boy word is stamped using Hero Arts alpha stamps.

I used the dark colours as I didn't want the card to look too girly.......I'm planning on giving this to my DH for our 34th wedding anniversary. I'm getting well ahead of myself here though, as our anniversary isn't until April!

I've coloured the image with Prisma pencils and Gamsol Magic technique.

I've been neglecting my oriental stamps lately, so here's a card I made using a Tin Can Mail image that I haven't inked before. The background piece uses the Technicolor Dye Ink technique from the Dec 07 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter and I've just stamped over it with Black Versafine ink.
The dragonfly embellishment was plain silver metal, which I've coloured with a green 'Sharpie' pen, then added some KindyGlitz to the wings. Apologies for the bad photo, I couldn't seem to get the colours right.
