Crane of Peace at Sweet Pea Stamps

Hi all! I have a little inspiration piece from ching chou kuik’s fantasy art collection at Sweet Pea Stamps. This little beauty is “Crane of Peace.” I have created with the digital image, but she is also available as a single rubber stamp, or from sheet 53, plate 249 at the store.

I hope you are ready for purple, ‘cause there’s a lot of it. I didn’t mean for that to happen, but that’s the way all of my elements worked out.

I colored her with my Copics and did a little highlighting with a white pen and Spica pens.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, E11, R30
Hair: E50, E25, E29
Kimono: R21, R22, R24, R29, R89 &
V20, V22, V25, V28, BV08
Background: YR01, R21, V20, G93, G97

My framed die cut is Spellbinder’s Card Creator Die A2 FiligreeDelight.  After I cut the pieces I painted the cut with violet Viva Décor 3-D paint. I also touched the edges of the main image.

My flowers are from my stash. I did some dry brushing with white and violet Viva Décor 3-D paint. My little butterflies are from a very old Martha Stewart punch. I added white and silver Viva Décor 3-D paint. My designer paper is from Heartfelt Creations.
