TIO #7 Challenge - Treasure - Dragon's Hoard

Here is my tag for the TIO #7 challenge at DragonsDream, this week. The theme is Treasure. I wanted to use my lovely dragon stamp, which I have reclaimed from it's wooden block, that had warped, I think. I printed him on to shiny card and embossed with a copper ep. I used my wonderful starburst stains to bodge colour on to his body, and then to the background, after stamping with various texture stamps. Some of the scales have been further enhanced by adding Sakura colour. I cut several "coins" from embossed card and used 3 small Chinese coins from my stash. His treasure includes a golden pear and a blood-red casket, which held my broken heart!! **(thereby hangs a tale) Above the symbol "long" (with a rising inflection) which means "dragon", I have used one of my treasured knots as the tie. I have given this tag to Fred, who is my lovely, lovely new man!!! Woo. Thanks for looking!!!

** see above the poem I have written, to tell this story, if you are interested....

Oh Frankie, I could write reams, but it is better to keep to the point and say that this is just beautiful, like your artwork it all gels together into a masterpeice.

I am so happy for your that you have found new meaning to life, everybody deserves that.
