Mama Elephant April Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hello, all! It's time for a new challenge over at Mama Elephant Blog! Here is the new challenge.


And here is my take on it.


Growing up in Taiwan, we all know about Thousand Origami Cranes. Even though I don't have a thousand cranes on my card, I am hoping that the thought counts and it will brighten up someone's day! =)


I love the light, airy feel the photo gives and decided to try and get that same feel with watercolor. The background is brushed with a very light blue/aqua.The paper cranes from Origami set are white embossed and watercolored and the sentiment is from Smitten set.

That's all I have. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this challenge and all the challenge details here! The challenge starts today and ends on May 5th, the winner will win a member spot on the challenge team! =)

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
