Oriental Crane (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with another sample using the 'Oriental Crane' set of clear stamps. While I love rubber stamps, clear stamps are perfect for creating a little scene as you can see exactly where you are stamping.


The background was created with distress inks (Tumbled Class, Peeled Paint and Tea Dye), blended on to Southfield White card and then splashed with water to give a mottled effect. I over stamped the background with dragonflies and bamboo stamps from 'Moonlit Waterfall'. 

I stamped the image with versafine ink and coloured with distress markers. I used some black card for matting and layering and added an oriental coin charm attached with some shimmery braid.

Thanks for visiting today

  2. The coin charm with the shimmery braid looks brilliant, especially with your speckled background & the pop of blue in the water around the crane's legs The speckles look almost like oriental blossom somehow.
