Green Dragon - Guest DT

Hello Everybody and thanks for visiting me today.

I'm really excited to be able to tell you that today's card is my entry as a Guest on the  Design Team at Delicious Doodles.

This my first time DT and also the first time I've ever used a digi stamp.  This one is called Dragon Shield and is one of the large range available from Delicious Doodles.

As the challenge was to use green I used as much as I could manage.

The background panel is rainbow card which was embossed then rubbed over with Inca Gold.  For the background, right, I rubbed through a stencil on a piece of linen card although unfortunately the texture doesn't show well in the photo.

I printed out the dragon three times so that I was able to decoupage him.  I tried several ways of getting a good golden shield and finally settled on a Krylon pen  and I did rised dots on the edge of the shield and coloured over the top when they were dry.

I put a little glossy accents on his eyes and coloured four silver brads gold gor the corners of the topper.  The wire mesh behind the image is something I picked up somewhere years ago.  It's the first time I've ever used it but I have a large sheet and will be using it again.

Those of you who visit often know how much I love to recycle. Happy Crafting!

I'd like to enter my card into Crafting When We Can  #113

  1. Congratulations on your guest DT spot! I think you've made a stunning card for the team, love the decoupage of the dragon. I did have a tiny giggle at the auto correct typo, wire mess rather than mesh though, I would have been in a right mess trying to stick that down without getting everything covered in glue! Have a great day, Cara x
