Creative Card Crew Challenge: Asian Flair

Hi ya friends,
Welcome to a brand new challenge at Creative Card Crew! This week we challenge you to create something with an Asian Flair (Patti L, this one's calling your name! Hee! Hee!)
Here's my card:
 This is Chinese Tilda. She's colored with Copics. I thought that I would color her Kimono with a black Sakura glaze pen so it would have that look of silky shine. That dark black kinda washed out her hair a bit- so we'll just call her Nai Nai---> grandmother :)

Here's a closer peek at that:
I added some gold accents to her Kimono and parasol. The rest got some touches of my gold & red Viva Decor pen. Finally, I embellished it simply with some gold buttons & some rolled roses. This was one of my absolute fav Tilda collections (Bon Voyage) & I'm so tickled to have gotten to get this girl inked up!
Our sponsor this week is the fab Bunny Zoe's Crafts who carries loads of Magnolias & other fabbie things to tickle your fancy!
Be sure to linky your Asian creation by Monday night to the Creative Card Crew blog & check out the amazing work of the DT.
