December has been very busy, probably for many of us. Hardly enough time to make all the cards which leaves no time to blog and read blogs. So I’ve got tons of cards still to show. Don’t worry, I won’t post them all individually, I’ll post them in groups.
However, ofcourse I’m not going to post in chronological order, that would be too easy now, wouldn’t it? So here is a card I made this week for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #6
The dragon is from the set: Here be dragons. Unfortunately the white embossingpowder was too thick for the text, and the white gellpen has got a heavy flow. But I do like how the dragon turned out a lot, I like the colous of the wings. The text says: Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
The background is from a sheet of which the previous card was made as well. The yellow looks less yellow in real life (I think it might be the lamplight) or the printed colourchallenge looks more yellow in real life – the difference between the challenge colours and my card colour (the olive/light green or greenish yellow).
I stamped the dragon, coloured with distress inks, added some purple glitter and highlights. Stamped the dragon breath in green and turqoise (the swirls are also from that set, as is the text).
I made backframes for the card and added some bister to the frames as well, as if the dragon is spewing his fire even outside the middle frame.
The colouring of the dragon-likes is fun and quick with the distress inks and a waterbrush. My next card focuses on a waterdragon, they just go very well with bister it seems!
