I have made this card using the Oriental Crane clear stamp set from Chocolate Baroque. I stamped the crane onto white card with Memento black ink and coloured it with Coloursoft pencils. The blue shading in the background was done using a duster brush and broken china Distress ink. After trimming I mounted it onto black card leaving a narrow border. Next I stamped and coloured the little oriental scene and the Birthday greeting on the left hand side of a larger piece of white card. I edged this piece with narrow black peel off strips. The back layer is a piece of oriental style paper from my stash cut to fit the base card, and then the other pieces positioned on top with the crane panel mounted with foam tape.
This card is for yet another man in the family with a birthday this month.
I am entering it in the following challenges, Stamping Sensations - The Great Outdoors Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes Make It Monday - Anything Goes CCEE Stampers - Pencils Please
