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.
