Memoirs of a Geisha Movie Theme

Memoirs of a Geisha is one of my favourite films.  I love all the imagery in it and the scene with the cherry blossoms is so beautiful.  I've had this image from The East Wind for ages but just hadn't got round to colouring it up.  It's one of Aurora but I can't actually find it on the Etsy listing at the moment.

Anyway.... she's been coloured with Copics - yes I'm finally getting round to using them :) AND she's in my favourite colour PINK!!

The image was cut out with a Spellbinders die and then antique linen distress in applied to make the white of the image fade inot the background design paper.

I've used design papers from Lili of the Valley and Prima Marketing which have been distressed.  The oriental pictures you can see in the back ground are form a clear stamp set from Lili of the Valley.  I've coloured some of the cherry blossom in a pink rather than just leave them as outline images and then around the image and cascaded down the card are some tiny paper flowers which I got in Hobby Craft.

Mustn't forget the film strip from Tim Holtz to finish off the movie inspiration
