So what's a maneki-neko you ask? Do the kitties look familiar? Maybe saw something like that in Chinatown? Hawaii is known for being the melting pot of cultures and the maneki-neko represents a lot of things such as good fortune and luck. Depending on who you ask here in Hawaii, you may get a different story and meaning each time! For more details check out Maneki-neko on Wikipedia. Each paw raised whether left, right or both mean different things...either way these stamps are adorable!
I went for the traditional maneki-neko colors and used copic markers to color in the details then fussy cut each kitty. I wanted the background to have that Asian flair so embossed red cardstock with Lifestyle Embossing Folder in Tide. Kinda reminded me of scales on a koi fish which a kitty may like...hehehe
Just wanted to share a little piece of Hawaii with all of you. Until next time...a hui hou!
