A for Asian

For the twinchies swap this month on the Bubbly Funk forum the theme is A, so I've used A for Asian. And, of course, Chinese New Year has just started and it's the year of the dragon, so I've used a clipart picture of a dragon that I found in Publisher.

I covered a piece of gloss white card with a mixture of terra cotta, butterscotch and red pepper Adirondack alcohol inks, also using a little blending solution. I then printed the dragons spaced out on the card before cutting into twinchies which I then stamped with the HOTP writing stamp using archival ink.

Unfortunately, because it's a dismal day, I've had to resort to a flash photo and it was impossible to get one without some glare because of the shine of the gloss card. The colours look much richer IRL.

I'm linking these for the following challenges:
