Dragon Daydreams


Hello, today I have a card to show you that I have made using a dragon stamp from Stamps Happen Inc. I have stamped the dragon with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and coloured with Copic Markers and a White Gel pen. The green dragon skin paper has been made using some paper from Joanna Sheen and has been embossed with an embossing folder. The gold layers have been made using Gilding Flakes from Cosmic Shimmer and the red layering has been made using Distress Inks. I have also made a story book using a stamp from Dimension 4th. The castle, book papers and crown are from Die Cuts With A View 'Once Upon A Time' collection. I have used the 'Fancy Flourish' die from Cheery- Lynn and a Tonic Punch for the flowers. I have also used some ribbons, a cross charm, some bead pins, a Knight button and a bottle of 'Dragon Dust' from my stash. The card has been finished with some Gold Perfect Pearls, Stickles and Glossy Accents. The card measures 7 x 7 inches. I am entering this card as a chance to be on the DT for Crafty Cardmakers and More.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges: 



Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs & Fishes


Hi, today I have a card to show you that uses some stamps from Creative Expressions. I have stamped the images with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and coloured with Copic Markers, then decoupaged them to create dimension. The dotty background papers are from 'My Minds Eye'. The Distressed wood paper has been made by painting some white card with Acrylic Paint, then run through an embossing folder, before being sanded and having 'Weathered Wood' Distress ink applied. I then cut a hole in the wood layer and peeled back the edges to create a sort of porthole. The Text stamp also came with the stamp sets. I then made some sand using some embossing powders and 'Glossy Accents' which is a Tutorial in Tim Holtz's blog. I finished the card with some shell embellishments and some pearls. The card measures 5 1/2 x 51/2 inches.
