I was in the mood to make a card tonight and had colored this adorable Sweet Pea dragon by Lisa Victoria. In fact, I thought he was so cute that I colored him in purple, then stamped him off again and colored him in green.
Mojo Monday (week 193 already!). I was about to use the purple version, but then I discovered a large piece of the Bazzill bling in my scraps pile. It matched the green guy perfectly. Then I happened to remember that I had this cool embossed paper that looks like scales, which also seemed perfect for a little dragon. Unfortunately, I suck at cutting straight angles. You'd think cutting a square into quarters would be easy, but I somehow mess it up every time. Maybe I should measure instead of eyeballing it, but that's too much like effort. Oh, well.
This little dragon is colored with copics. I highlighted the scales along his back and his wings with a green stardust pen. I used a red stardust pen on the flames, and liquid applique on the marshmallows.
I'm entering this card in the Do You Stack Up (DYSU) challenge for this time around, too. This time, the challenge is to make an animal inspired card. Well, dragons are animals, too, right? Make believe ones, perhaps, but animals nonetheless. Even if he doesn't count, I hope the paper with scales is enough animal-like stuff to count for the challenge, at least. Come on, pretty please???
As always, thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week!
