Geisha

I have made this card with a couple of challenges in mind.
Chestnut Theme challenge GS 97 Geishas.
There are some realy inspiring pieces to see at Gingersnap creations.
Also ,
Challenge20  Embossing over  at The Stampman
I used some papers that have been in the box for ages as my background. It is mounted on black,  I got a bit carried away cropping the photo, the black border is about an inch wide.  The Geisha stamp however is called 'The scented house' by Stampington. She was embossed in black, then coloured with cosmic shimmer paints. The small tile is triple embossed, but  its hard to see the symbols on the photo.
Thankyou for stopping by, your comments are realy appreciated.
