Having fun with cranes

Hidee Ho!  It's been a couple days since I last posted so thought I'd pop in real quick and share a card I made a while back.  Now normally I would probably share this on Friday, but I have something else scheduled for that day.  This gal has waited long enough I think.  lol...


I made this as one of the sample cards for the last stamp show.  This is Yoko from Sister Stamps.  As you can see I had a bit of fun with her crane.  I consider this a CAS card what do you think?  Used the largest of the reverse wonky rectangle Spellbinder dies for the main image.  Left the die on and stamped Yoko then I used DI brick red and sponged all around her and the original crane. 


Can you tell which one it is?  Just follow the string to the end. (woo hoo interactive post - lol)  Colored her with Copics as well as a couple of the cranes.  The other ones I paper pieced using the same washi paper as you see in the background.  Mounted it onto white cs and then all onto black Tsumugi cs.  The border was from an EK Success border bunch that I punched on both sides.  Sometimes that gets tricky, you have to make sure you don't trim too much of the strip of paper and then you have to remember which side to start your punch on.  O yea, I handwrote that sentiment.  Besides skin color I think I only used 5 different Copic markers here.  Just tried to see if I could get away with not using a lot of markers for this one.


Well, that's all for today.  If you have time stop by tomorrow when I will have not 1, but 2 posts.  One for Flutterby Wednesday challenge #199 and a sponsor spotlight post for Lollipop Crafts.  Mahalo for stopping by today!  Hope you are all having a lovely day/evening.
