Earth Wind and Fire challenge at PanPastel UK

Hi, I'm back again this time with my DT card for PanPastel UK where our theme is 'Earth Wind and Fire', you don't have to use all three but of course I had to try and be clever and do just that lol. 

I'd kind of decided to go with a fire theme and use my favourite dragon stamp from Chocolate Baroque,  I created a background scene with black, paynes grey and phthalo blue extra dark and then more or less covered it up with my other layers lol. I've make some flames with red, orange, diarylide yellow and black pans, matted on black card, the sentiment is stamped on card coloured with the same pans. 

The dragon is coloured with distress markers and then came the tricky bit, well actually it wasn't tricky at all once I'd worked out what to do but it did tax my poor little brain sell for a while lol. I used black and paynes grey pans and swirled them around the dragon with the edge of a sofft sponge, then to create more of a swirly wind effect I used the edge of a pencil eraser to remove some of the colour.  

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Poodles Parlour: winged things
