Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge # 5 - Memoirs of a Geisha

Happy Saturday Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge movie goers. This week Sankari and I have pick "Memoirs of a Geisha" This Beautiful story might have even been a book you have all read in a book group. But this story is visually stunning. The life of a Geisha is not an easy one. They are subject to making other happy their life. And give up a life of their own. Most girls were sold into the Geisha life in hopes of them having a better life. 

You have to visit SANKARI'S blog and see her amazing, amazing cards. They will blow your socks off!

I used the powerful color of the lips of a Geisha for the main base color with black to represent the charcoal and the white all over face. Gold to accent the purchase price of the Geisha. I wanted to create a piece of silk from the beautiful kimono's. I use mulberry paper with a faint stamped image in Going Grey then wadded up the paper and smoothed it out. I would've love to tie my ribbon like a traditional Kimono buy you know.  A simple Sentiment was added that reflects the appearance of a Geisha "Beautiful".

I couldn't have a naked card on the inside so I did the whole Geisha from head to toe. I have had this stamp set for Ever and finally had a project to use it on. Happy Happy days.

This is the photo I took the sneak peek from. gorgeous!!
Come on over to Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge and find a few links to the movie clips.  Then don't for get to view some of the projects created. Feel free to add your own creation.
