My friend challenged me to use her geisha drawing to make a card for Chinese New Year's. I found an origami kimono on UTUbe and made the pink kimono. My copics saved me since some of my folds left the white back of the paper showing so I colored them in. ( I also left a stack of kimonos with BIGGER white folds showing on my table. I really should learn to clean up after myself!)
I think the drawing is incredible --- and really puts me in the mood for Chinese food for dinner. I wanted the rabbit to be just peeking from behind her kimono. Unfortunately my round punches are at the bottom of a plastic tub till the carpet gets installed ( and today we found out it is delayed a week ... ugh ) so I had to cut out her hair by hand. I think it ended up looking just a bit more like mouse ears than a geisha hairdo.
The word " blessings" is a punch my sister sent from HongKong, with translation and specific directions as to which end was up.
