TAG IT ON #28 - YEAR of the TIGER

I am sooo happy that the TAG IT ON CHALLENGES are back...I have really missed them.  Poor Frankie is incapacitated at the mo so the lovely Blackdragon has taken up the post this week to set the challenge.....

"This week, we would like you to dream up your tag on the theme of tiger, either the whole image, or the colours and/or stripes etc etc - for example, I have just been watching the wonderful Joanna Sheen programme and her new Jane Nettley Meyhew disc with that fantastic tiger image ... Please remember to include at least one real stamp in your design. Have fun and please join in to get ME started again (pretty please!!!) and to support the lovely Blackdragon"


Here is my entry....
 
I cut out a pagoda shape & inked up with distress inks to make a tigerish background.  I have no tiger stamps so I overstamped with some Chinese words (no idea what they mean & I hope they are not upside down!!!) and some paw prints.  It was all looking a bit manic so I placed some parchement over the top to tone it all down, tho that has come up rather bright in the pic hahaha
 
To finish off I attached a Chinese coin & some ribbon & beads.
 
Thanks for taking a look today, HUGS for everyone XXX

Well I don't know how you came up with this one... it's amazing!!
I think i would have just gone for stripes soon as I saw the word tiger..lol
Sometimes I go completely out of the box (usually when me brain is in meltdown) but more oft than that I get stuck with one word and can't move away from it with challenges so I am in awe of your fab tag honey....way to go!!!
hugs
