Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #67 ~ Sketch Challenge

Happy New Year!!!
everyone, it's year of the dog this year, hope your enjoying all the festivities, a busy week indeed with pancakes and valentine's too.

We have a new challenge on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
This Fortnight's is a little sketch...

I was inspired to create this piece in celebration of the Chinese New Year.
 I've used the Blunt bangs Long with the head & torso mixed media templates,
 with of course the female face stamp... to give a different look, I omitted the eyelashes stamp and simply drew in a suggestion of them with black copic liner pen.
having rekindled my love of copics coloured away, I thought I would bring out this vintage patterned paper from about ten years ago(I know).
Remember the old days when we would matt with gold mirri? hahaha I thought it fitted this style though so went with it...
although I do like the layered gold washi, also pretty in keeping with the theme...
I also used washi on her kimono, for the edging, which inspired the stamping on the rest of her kimono using the flower from the Oriental Zen Stamp with distress oxides, I then coloured the grey with copcis, impressed how the oxides don't 'bleed' good to remember if you ever want to stamp something in a different colour...
and I just had to finish her off adorning her hair with the large Peony & Bud flower, also coloured in copcis, in case you were wondering...

I'm entering this into a few other challenges, thank you...
