Oriental Tag Swap

I made this tag  for a tag swap at Inky Fun tampers this month. The theme of the tag exchange was create something with a oriental theme.  I went through my unmounted rubber stamps and found some stamps that I made the tag with.  I have had these rubber stamps for a very long time (10 or more years) and no longer remember the company that made them. Anyone recognize the maker? 

I embossed my tag background and edged it with gold paint.  Then I added my stamped images on the the tag making a collage.  My images were stamped on both pattern paper and white paper that I coloured.   The butterflies were die cut and added to the collage. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
