Dragons Dream TIO "Oriental in 2 colors"

This week at Dragons Dream we are creating something with an Oriental theme but only using 2 colors. I got to bust out an old stamp of mine. Did some embossing on metal to add a little texture.

The entire tag is sprayed with a new product I'm really jazzed about. It's called Moon Shadow, and the color I used here is Bucket O'Blood. The company is Lindy's Stamp Gang. These have a walnut or sepia color base and then when you tilt them the hidden color shows through... Awesome product!!! They are having a Labor Day sale right now, so you might want to hop over to their website and take a look.
Took some alcohol ink to the beaded antenna's ... thank you mom for never throwing anything away. These were perfect for my butterfly, and added some embellishments to finish off my tag.
Ja mata. じゃまた。(see you later)

Toni, I'm a huge fan of Lindy's. The customer service there is wonderful and so personal. Your oriental tag is very beautiful. I love the stamp and the embossing you did on it.

Love the gold on the butterflys wings and the antenna on her. I am glad I didn't throw those away glad you could use them. mom

Fantastic piece!

I'm wondering ... how'd you manage the gold-plated wing edges?

Is that a metallic, embossed paper or embossed metal?

Oh this is lovely, Toni... been using these for a while now - you might also like to try starburst stains. They are mica with colour pigment instead of the walnut ink!! FABULOUS.
