Year of the Dragon - 2012

ANYTHING GOES CARD SWAP
SIGN UP IS STILL OPEN UNTIL
November 15th!


Here's a poster calendar that I did  since early this morning, I went to bed last night and dreamt about how I was going to create this poster calendar.  I wanted something to hang in my craft space  on the wall.  This is a new stamp from Sister Stamps and I really like this image alot.... Because it has the firecrackers this suppose to symbolize chasing all the bad out and bringing in the good.  The images were inked up with copic and memento markers, added gold stickles to add sparkles from the firecrackers, gold paper from S.E.I (moonrise), spellbinders wonky rectangles & ribbon banners, computer generated on 2012, red cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid, leaf from I/S (Island Scrapbooking laser cut), pop up dots, and hot glue... I'm still starring at it and debating on how to add my gold ribbon on the top for hanging yet.....I didn't want to over power this poster.......
Now, my hubby and DD want this same thing to hang on their office wall.  So I will have to work on their request and post those up later when I get them finished.... Right now my mind is over whelmed with tons of projects that I need to finish up.....
Thanks for taking a peek....
Hugs to you all~
