{2.8.2013} happy chinese new year…

My sweet friend Emily Leiphart (Art from the Heart) has organized a fun hop to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The New Year is on February 10th, but we are celebrating now and through the weekend. There are a great bunch of designers and stamp illustrators ready to celebrate the Year of the Snake.

I couldn’t help but create something as well using my own design.

Just using some Echo Park Dots and Stripes with some washi tape.
