Washi Shapes for Chinese New Year

I am in Hong Kong today, so thought it fitting that I make a card for Chinese New Year (which is 1/31).

 I used a Michael Strong Kimono die and mounted it on dimensionals with a piece of Mulberry like cardstock I bought in China last year as the backdrop. I used a Copic Marker to color a piece of Silk Ribbon for the sash. The Kanji says Happy New Year. I cut toothpicks for the top and the bottom of the banner. 2014 is the Year of the Horse.

 This is such a fun way to use Washi and a fun new way to look at your dies. We'd love to see what you create!
