31DC2014 Day 26: Kamon Inspired Pattern

For today's Inspired by a Pattern prompt I chose this image representational of Japanese kamon, emblems or crests that identify a family. This particular kamon is repeating in a beautiful tiled design. During my trip to Japan a few years ago I noticed similar images at every temple and castle we visited. Most of them consist of a floral or botanic motif. I loved discovering the different variations of each kamon from place to place.

Various kamon displayed at Himeji Castle.

This red goes perfectly with this pattern, don't you think?

What I used:
Orly Siren- red
Konad Special Polish black
MoYou London Suki 06 stamping plate

Last year's 31DC2014 Inspired by a Pattern.

My trip to Japan with my husband was our final "hurrah" before starting our family. I wonder how many years it will be until we can go again? Looking back at these pictures now sure makes me miss it!
