Turning Japanese, I Think I'm Turning Japanese - I Really Think So!!!!

Oh do you remember that song from the 80's????
Other than my Magnolia collection, I really don't buy
many stamps these days, unless I fall in love instantly
like I did with this new set of stamps from Hero Arts.
There was no way I was leaving the store without them,
and the Japanese papers I found to go with them are
gorgeous - and the fact that they were quite expensive
didn't deter me, I think I got just about one of each sheet!!!
Even though the stamped image came complete with
chopsticks in her hair, she was just screaming out for
a little bit of modification in the form of miniature hand
made hat pins.

I've taken this weeks SCS sketch and modified
it just a little.
Each of their little dresses has been cut from the
Japanese paper, and after colouring their hair,
the fans and feet with atyou Spica markers I've
then used Crystal Effects for impact.
