Crane Screen

Hi there!!! Today marks the start of a brand new ATG challenge at Creative Fingers Challenge Blog 🙂 This time, we are being sponsored by the fabulous Lemon Shortbread stamps <3 The DT was provided with some lovely images to work with, and I chose Chinese Japanese Cranes. I had ordered some Asian inspired dies quite a while ago, and was sure they should be here by the time my project was due, but Canada Post strikes again, and I’m still waiting for mail!! So, I had to come up with something else….last minute, as I was waiting… I thought of the screen idea, and started to map things out after I’d colored the image with my Copics. The first time I colored, I didn’t “math” right, and cut the panels the wrong size, so had to start all over…..I don’t math. I traced the screen template that I made up onto black CS, and carefully cut it out and scored it to make a three panel screen. I decorated it with an Asian stamp that I embossed in gold, and then finished decorating with a gold gel pen. I cut the panels from the image…..did it right the second time, lol. I had some black pinstriping tape on hand, so used this to section off each image. To hold the pinstriping in place and to finish the panel off nicely, I embossed the edges with gold. I stamped some bamboo, and embossed it in gold on the back of the two outside panels, but the pictures really were icky, so you have to believe me that it looks good, lol. The back of the middle panel is left blank for a sentiment or short note. I like that this can be used as a card, then as a small piece of decor, as well.

I’d like to enter this in the following:

  1. This is really lovely, the image goes so well with the Japanese screen and cutting the image into sections makes for a striking creation, many thanks for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations August challenge.
