Year of the Dragon at Rainbow Lady's Challenge

Get your sunspecs out as this card is a bit on the bright side lol. Our challenge this week at Rainbow Lady's Challenge is 'Year of the Dragon'. I was tempted to go all oriental for this one but then I decided to use this cute little dragon stamp instead.

The stamp is 'Dragon Luck' by Lisa Victoria from Sweet Pea Stamps. I've coloured him with promarkers and inked around the edges with distress ink. I've used a background made with lime green cosmic shimmer mist, which I brayered (with an old hard rubber brayer not my trusty speedball lol) to create the texture. I've also added a panel of cuttlebugged card again inked with distress inks. To finish off I've added some lime green scrunchy ribbon, a couple of fabric flowers and a button.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Catered Crop: buttons
Crafty Catz: Something new
Delicious Doodles: All things new
Deep ocean: sparkling and/or glitter
Emerald Faerie Garden: Green and gold/yellow
I love promarkers: anything goes
Marks Finest Papers: border punches
(my embossing folder was a Christmas pressie from my lovely friend Ann)
Stamptacular Sunday: texture
Truly Scrumptious: something forgotten (my dragon stamp)

Thanks for visiting today

  3. That background simply glows & he's a very endearing dragon. Love the contrast you created by giving him a Marigold to gaze at.
