Going Japanese

My card today is one my friend has asked me to make for her friend who is jetting off to Japan, so I've tried to combine it with two challenges.

First is ColourQ with these colours ( not what you would  immediately pick for an oriental card!?)

and secondly, Paper Players who have this sketch   

Here is my card

I cut the four panels in white, stamped the images on them, and then laid them down onto dark grey card which was on a white base. The Buddha was stamped in Archival ink so that I could use my Aqua Painter to colour it with washed down black ink, and then positioned him on 3D pads.

Marilyn was really pleased with it, what do you think?

Supplies :
Card = Whisper White, Naturals White, Dark Grey and white base FMS
Stamps = Inkadinkado and Baroque Motif 
Inks = Real Red, Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Black and Archival Black
Tools = Aqua Painter

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you can come back soon.
