Gung Hay Fat Choy !
Well, it's the 10th of the month and that means.....Tag Along Time! Yeah, Unlike last month, I am on top of it. I planned out my monthly tag for the year long swap. Going with my 'Theme' of 1950's Housewife, I also wanted to incorporate the Chinese New Year.
I was able to find on Google, (man I love Google) an image of a Chinese woman that looked the part.
Well, I simply took that image into my handy little computer program and enhanced her blouse to cover those veggies right up. Now how do you like that? Google & I are a team not to be outdone.
Once I had my image correct, I needed something Chinese.
I found these great lantern stickers from my friend Martha. You know, Ms. Stewart.
Well I am fixated on going by E's rules and being creative with our one time purchase, so I made my own lanterns with a Fiskers paper Crimper. (sorry, I forgot that photo).
My sweet pea pumpkin head and her new kitty come to check on my progress often. they think I am nuts but love me anyway.
I inked the edges for a more aged look, after all, they are from the 50's right? Popped up my layers to different dimensions, added a bit of bling to the top of each lantern, my favorite clear jelly roll pen to her blouse, ( hard to see in photo, but it glimmers nicely in person) and Walah!!
February's Tag complete before the 11th hour this time. Had fun, now.......What to do for March???????????????
