It's new challenge time at Crafting with an Attitude. Our sponsor this month is Lemon Shortbread and this is one of their images called Japanese Cranes. 

The colour inspiration for this came from a painting I saw and really liked.

I coloured it with Polychromo pencils. I have layered the image using navy blue card. Then cut the edge decoration from some oriental blue leafy papers. I have added an oriental charm and coin to the top left corner. The corners on the image have been die cut and the sentiment is a peeloff one. 

I am quite pleased with the outcome.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges

Word art wednesday - Inspirationa; words
Arty Stampers - Monochromatic
Crafty Animals - Animals
