Nikko Maple

I have this Dover book of vintage luggage stickers that I wanted to work with. The image in the upper left hand corner is from the book - - from the Nikko Hotel in Japan. I printed it on newspaper and distressed the heck out of it using sand paper and ripping it. I matte gel'd it onto a background made of Joss paper, which I think is really beautiful. I then applied the stamp and colored in the birds with gel ink. The flowers were cut from art paper and embellished with a glitter center. I finished it off with two inked edges and one edge bordered with silver thread. I have 7 of these.
