and onto my card using 'Sushi Bar' from The Alley Way Stamps
I used the sweet little crane image from this set - my sister in law was married last summer and had a thai themed wedding and had the most beautiful display of these little origiami paper cranes hanging in the reception venue.
I stamped the pretty little flower included in this set using versamark ink onto a kraft cardstock base and used Antique linen distress ink to sponge around the edges. I stamped the crane image twice onto some colourful rainbow patterned paper, cut around it and then cut an extra 'wing' and used foam adhesive to add a little dimension.
I used more pretty MME patterned paper for the background.
I stamped a few of the little sentiments from this set for extra interest behind the bird. For the main sentiment i added the extra 'U' by from the word 'Sushi' by inking it up separately. I wanted the bird to appear as though it was hanging decoration, so suspended it from the top of the card using some natural button twine and a little triple twine bow!
Stop by the DYSU blog for more wonderful inspiration from our great team and enter the challenge for your chance to win wonderful prizes!
and here's one of those cranes that came home with us after the wedding, with it's little stamped counterpart!
