A happy Chinese New Year

Hi Everyone
Today, 31st January, is the start of the Chinese New Year and to celebrate this event our challenge this week over at Crafts4eternity
So we are looking for any type of project that features this theme.
For my DT piece this week I have used the fabulous stamps from Paperartsy Lynne Perrella collection LPCO22.
using a colour combination of red and teal on white cardstockout came the gelli plate and various small stencils.
I then just roughly brayered some matching paint onto manilla card stock and stamped my image 3 times.
Painting her cheeks in the same matching colour palette.
 To add further interest the fish (Paperartsy plate LPCO24 partial stamping)and chinese words, don't ask me what they say? using white embossing powder.

and finally some contrasting black stamping with Chinese text.
So why not come and join in with us to celebrate this Chinese New year with your Oriental make 
and for any of you celebrating this event, A Happy New Year to you.
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave your comment I love hearing what you think.
See you soon
