Did you know that this year, 2012, is the Year Of The Dragon? What a fabulous year .. as I love Dragons .... it was not long ago that I actually found out I was born in the Year Of The Dragon also .. way back in 1976 .... (and to top it off I'm also a LEO! ... what a combination!)
Do you know what year you are ... perhaps you are an Ox, or a Rabbit, maybe a Snake .....
Over at Stamping With The Dragon we have another challenge starting and the theme of this week is
The Year Of The Dragon (so you must have a dragon on your entry project please).
I have used one of the brand spanking new digi images called Rupert With Chinese Lantern ....you can find it in the store here.
For my background I stamped a fireworks stamp in perfect medium (a clear slow drying stamp pad) and then brushed on some gold perfect pearls (gold shimmer powder .. I have heard that eye shadow words too .... haven't tried it myself though).
I have used two brads that I thought looked a bit like Chinese style coins ... I may be totally incorrect here and my apologies if I am .. but I remember years ago seeing things like this in Chinatown.
The ribbon is from my stash .. isn't it lovely! and the word "imagine" is a rub on from Kaisercraft.
Don't forget to head on over to Stamping With The Dragon (click on the header of this post) to see the gorgeous projects from the DT.
Enter your own project for a chance to win a prize .. can't wait to see what you create.
xoxoxoxoxo Happy Year Of The Dragon
PS ... when you leave a comment I would love to know what "year" you are ... just for fun :)
