Dragon


This image was given to me by my lovely friend Alison, who has some amazing stamps, in case you're wondering, this one is from a company called Sweet Pea Stamps (they can be bought in the uk here).

I followed an old sketch challenge for the layout & keep wondering whether I should have added a sentiment, but I can always add that if I find the right person and occasion to use it - that's part of the problem, I keep making loads of cards (probably have over 100 already made) and only have a few occasions to use them, by which time I've made loads more. Card making is a very dangerous addiction, steer well clear!

As usual I have coloured the image using promarkers and copics - I've even managed to run out one of my copic pens through using is so much, ah well, it was bound to happen sooner or later, another trip to the craft shop me thinks!

I could not tell you the company that makes the papers I've used but they are soo gorgeous, they are glittered so beautifully, but I do know that I bought them at Just Tracy's, and if she doesn't have these, she always has the most beautiful papers in stock (along with everything else designed to keep us in the poor house, but craftily happy!).

Tracy is also releasing her own range of stamps at the end of the month, and I can't wait to get to see them all - have seen a few designs and they look absolutely fab.

I've started to do my own doodling again - haven't done any for years and have found that if you don't use it you lose it, but hopefully as I do more, it will get better and then I may be able to use my own images on cards, now wouldn't that be brilliant!

Anyway, hope you love the dragon. Will be back soon, off to have a play with a couple more challenges and see if I can get to grips with my new Cricut Gypsy - may even have to treat myself to the SCAL software now that my Cricut firmware is up to date.
