Fly Free

This little pocket is my submission for the Gingersnaps Creations challenge GC98 Mists.  The challenge is still focusing on the Far East and I just loved this fed-up looking Geisha girl.  Maybe I've mis-read her mood and she is just pensive but I think she wants to broaden her horizons and fly free. 

I used a combination of sprays and masks for the background and then stamped the birdcage and harlequin over the top.

The velvet butterfly behind by Geisha has been inked with alcohol inks, as has the transparency crown and the butterfly wings.
