A Moo of Moos - Happy Chinese New Year

In reply to Ali's moo here, I decided to do one with a Chinese New Year theme. It will be the year of the ox, beginning on 26th of January, hence the "moos" on my moo!! It is a tiny little thing, 1.1" x 2.8", and was printed with 4 of my ox images. The larger one is covered with diamond glaze, sprinkled with some cosmos glitter. I used Glimmer Mists in reds and a splash of lemon zest, and trimmed it with a narrow red organza ribbon. Red is a very important colour to the Chinese, especially at new year. So "Xin nian kuaile" - Happy New Year!! The other phrase you hear, "Gong xi fa cai" means wishing you prosperity, so I wish you that too, moo!!
