I am thrilled to join the Art Neko Design Team and happy to post my first artwork. As the publisher (writer, creator, photographer and head bottlewasher) of the Technique Junkie Newsletter, I hope to use many techniques to show off these beautiful Art Neko stamps. I hope I can do them justice!

The crane on this card was colored direct-to-stamp with waterbased markers, misted with water, and stamped onto watercolor paper.

The crane was matted in blue and layered onto a black cardstock piece (yes, that was black!) that has been brushed with gold and blue metallic paints. I layered that over a blue cardstock piece that had been embossed using a Cuttlebug folder. I added some paper piercing, grommets and ribbon with additional layering to highlight the crane image.

This crane image is available on the Asian Beauties 6 Sheet.

Thank you for looking at my art!
