Hetty goes Oriental

Hello TJers!
Today I share with you the cards I made with my Faux Design Paper technique. If you start making a background with this technique, you can't to it on a small piece, so i had enough to make two cards with it.

Card 1:
stamps: bamboo from Stamp Francisco, crane Michael Strong and Geisha from Marije Radher
and there is also some out of the box technique (October 2004). The geisha is colored with watercolor crayons. Flowers from my stash.

Card 2:
Stamps: bamboo from Stamp Francisco, crane Michael Strong and girlgeisha from Hero Arts.
Here you see also the Washi paper piecing technique (August 2009). Flowers made from the left over washi paper with a punch.
成功 chinese for: Succes!
