Year Of The Dog Chinese Tag 1

Hi, Sylvia here with my weekly craft offering, an oriental themed tag to celebrate the Chinese New Year, the year of the dog.

My tag was cut from white linen card, coloured with rich red distress inks, stamped with Chinese lanterns in gold ink then some heat embossed with gold powder.  A full moon and images from a travel stamp featuring sights of China were stamped in black ink before matting the tag onto a slightly larger black tag.  The tag was finished with a greeting and Chinese coin and a tassel.

The New Year greeting was printed on a laser printer and foiled, layered onto red and black card and attached to the tag.
