Going Geisha

Hi everyone - no post from me for over a week as I haven't had chance to do any crafting ... but yesterday (Friday) I managed to get a flexi day off work, so after a good old lie-in I sat down to have a play. First of all I had to polish off my DT work, but after that I couldn't wait to get colouring one of the new LotV geisha stamps. I actually bought both the cute geisha girls from Port Sunlight 3 weeks ago while they were still on pre-release, so it's been very frustrating that I haven't had opportunity to play with them until now!

Stamps: LotV "Aimi with Lantern"; scroll and second lantern from Geisha Companion Set; sentiment from geisha sentiment set;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: LotV "Nitwits" collection - promises;
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Hobbycraft, Crafts4u2Do and The Hobby House; birdcage charm from The Hobby House; Dovecraft dragonfly brad; ribbon from John lewis;
Tools: "peony" nestabilities; Martha Stewart "garden trellis" edge punch; Cheery Lynn "Fancy Flourish" die.
