I picked Vietnam as my theme. I rarely make cookies inspired by Asian countries including my country Japan, so I thought I should make something Asian this time.

Vietnam is one of the country I want to visit one day the most. To me, it's a beautiful country with beautiful nature, beautiful food and beautiful people.

For the round cookies, I put "non La," Vietnamese conical hats on birds. (I've been obsessed with birds in hats.)  I piped @Evelindecora 's crochet piping on their wings. The background was inspired by beautiful rice fields (terrace) and I painted with diluted food colours.

The navy plaque cookies were inspired by Vietnamese indigo dyed cloth.

I adore these!  I really like how your set is more "inspired" by Vietnam than a literal representation of Vietnamese objects. The backgrounds evocative of rice fields are simply beautiful. I am also smitten by the cloth-like pattern of the navy-colored cookies. I wonder if you could have achieved a different, more batik-like effect with a wet-on-wet approach? I know the pattern would not end up as crisp, but this might be something fun to experiment with! Lastly, I wholly agree that one can never have enough birds in hats!

Thank you! Actually I still had some left over round and mini plaque cookies just flooded with white icing after I canceled a few classes due to my fractures and I used them for this set! That's why I didn't think of wet on wet for the indigo cookies. 

I know you love bird cookies as much as I do. Birds fit any theme, any style!
