Lovely cards from a new friend in Japan, Masami who celebrated his birthday last week.
The first is to mark Girl's Day and the second is to celebrate life! Not only two delightful cards but a beautiful Koinobori decorated envelope as well.
Valerie from France has taken the idea of using corrugated cardboard, cutting away the surface and painting it and turned it into fine art! She has posted a series of enchanting bird themed etegami on Facebook.
A sandpiper flying low over water from Alison which was
painted in response to Debbie's call for bird etegami.Sorry I can't translate the words but the colours are great, I can almost hear the piping cry of the sandpiper.
