Dragons Dream Tag it on Challenge

China Blue
Just found this challenge and love the name aswell as the challenge. My mum loved all things oriental so I have grown up around Chinese and Japenese symbolism. It was inevitable that I'd be drawn to oriental crafting.

I bought a willow pattern stamp many moons ago and havn't found the right project for it to go on but this is the one. With the willow pattern being a scene I thought I'd make some paper shutters out of parchment and have them opening to reveal the scene through the window. The button on the top is one that mum put on a dress she made for me when I was about 11. Click on the pics to have a closer look

Cardstock - Kanban
Paper - Stamping Up
Stamps - Kodomo Inc
Embelishments - Stamp Man
Ribbon - Stash

I really enjoyed this challenge and their themes are a bit different and other worldly which gives loads of scope to experiment and use different techniques. Will definately play again!

I've been doing these tag chellenges from the start and have thoroughly enjoyed them so I'm glad you've found them too. Your Oriental tag is beautiful, I love the unusual shape. Can't wait to see what this weeks theme is.
