Sentimental Sundays DT Post: layers, layers and more layers!

Hi! I'm back!

We've just arrived from running some errands around town and I bought some crafty stuff, but just essentials, like glue, so nothing really exciting!

And I just rushed quickly back home because..... 

 it's Sentimental Sundays time!

This week at Sentimental Sundays challenge #190, the theme is

More than 3 layers
(plus a sentiment)

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Paper Pretties.

They have the cutest stamps and digi stamps for all type of occasions!

So come on, start layering up your cards, check out the amazing creations my fellow DTs have made  and join us this week for this great challenge!

So, this is my 4th card of my blogathon weekend!

For my card this week I used this amazing image by Paper Pretties, our sponsor, called "Fan-tastic".
And then I put layer and layers and layers! aren't layers a lot of fun???!!!

For all the layers, I used some scraps and papers from First Edition Rose Garden paper pad, K&Company and Crate Paper DIY shop paper pads.
I distressed all the paper borders with Tim Holtz distress ink pad in Tattered Rose.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers.

For her hair I used: Black, Cool Grey 5, 4, 3 and 1.
For her skin: Vanilla, Almond, Blossom and blender pen.
For her dress and sandals: Antique pink, Pink Carnation, Blossom and Pink Mittens.

For the fan I used: Blossom and buttermilk.

I fussy cut the image and place it as the top layer, over the circle layer. This circle layer represents the Rising Sun,  as Japan can be know as (having a Japanese geisha as an image, I wanted to have something else hinting to Japan!)

The banner is one of the new stash I got over Christmas. It is from La La Land Crafts and I bought it from Loves Rubberstamps.

I didn't feel the card needed a lot of embellishments, as it has so many layers and papers a very patterned. I just used a few buttons from my stash.

I created the sentiment myself on the computer.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
