 I made this triple layer card for the Yahoo OSA (oriental stamp art) swap group that I am in.  I learned the technique this past weekend from my Stampin Up demonstrator.
The kanji is a huge wood mounted stamp from Judikins stamped in Tsukineko "Galaxy Gold" fast-drying pigment ink. The geisha stamp is from Inkadinkado (wood mounted) and embossed and colored with copis.
The four little stamps in the corners are wood mounted hero arts stamps also embossed.
I added glitter in the cherry blossom flowers and waves.
The coin is a brad I got from Michaels.

I made this "Surfer Anya" (The Greeting Farm stamp) for a new Yahoo group I joined called "Just Cards"...they have a few themes for August, this one was Triple layer Ha! Wish again I just learned! I embossed Anya and colored with Copics.

"Hogs & Kisses" wood mounted stamp by Rubber Stampede  I bought from Tall Mouse in Anaheim for a whopping $2 !!!

Mermaid stamp by "Judikins".... close up view of the bikini top encrusted with rhinestones as well as in her hair and tail. Glossy accents on a couple of flowers embossed on purple paper, I believe by Cuttlebug...Yeah I'm not too good with the Glossy Accents yet! lol
I recently bought this clear stamp from the Carson Stamp Convention in July by "Techinque Tuesday".  It comes with a couple of other phrases "Hey girlfriend" and "Nothing beats a great day shopping!"
