The Dragon Leaves Wealth & Prosperity in his Path

December 31st 2011


The new challenge at So Artful is "Dragon" or "New Year" and Carla has two great photo inspirations for you! I have chosen to make a "Dragon" themed card for this challenge - my FIRST challenge as a So Artful DT Member!!!! I hope you can join us by linking up with your creation this fortnight!


My card uses a metallic gold base card with some real Japanese paper glued to it (a relative of mine recently returned from having spent a year over there and I have the most amazing collection of Japanese papers/stickers/fibre/beads etc. to use on my creations!!!!). The "Asian Square - Sakura" Digital Design is from Chris at CS Designs and was perfect for my card - the image has been coloured with Copics and I sponged Gold Lumiere paint around the edge. I found the free dragon clipart here - it was just what I was looking for and I used a "Karate" Font to make the "Best Wishes" sentiment. To finish off I added a Japanese bead and some fibres to the spine.

Beautiful! Love that soft torn edge on the specialty paper. It sets off the gold so well. Happy New Year and best wishes for 2012!
