I joined a Yahoo Group called Oriental Stamp Art- I am finding it to be an active board with alot of inspiration, tons of mingles and swaps....... I joined a Mingle for a card with two or more Cranes images a few weeks ago- my partner should have rec'd my card by now, so I thought I would post it today.
Art Neko (and is on sale for just $1.00 currently.......). The sentiment is from SU Kanji.
I colored the image with Copics. The cranes are stamped twice- I fussy cut them out and added shimmer with a Sakura Gelly roll pen. I added some texture with an embossing folder, and took out a stippled pink UFO that is very shimmery and added that under the image, added a piece from the MS punch and under the sentiment. There is a gold shimmery threads in the Washi paper too.
This is the Crane Mingle I received from Chris B:
The Crane is legendary in China for being the prince of all feathered creature on earth.
Next to the Phoenix , the Crane is the most favored all Chinese
bird symbols. The Crane is the ancient symbol for longevity because of its exceptionally
long life span. In many legends, the spirits ride on cranes, which are also said to bear the
souls of the departed to the heaven.
Thanks for stopping by!
