Hi, we are having a Design Team call for the Crafty Cardmakers team over on the blog for the next few weeks. Please pop along and if you want to enter just add DT to your entry into our latest challenge, A World of Fantasy. For that challenge we would love to see your creations that involve either Fairies, Dragons, Unicorns, Goblins or similar fantastical creatures as the MAIN focus of your design.
I should also like to announce the impending launch of a brand new mixed media/altered art style of challenge blog on 5th September at The Mirror Crack’d. We have a really talented team assembled for the new blog and they are already delighting me, as I am sure they will you, with their creative talents.
Anyhow, back to today’s challenge. This post will be quite picture heavy as I find that the lovely Luminarte Silks don’t show up in every light as much as I would like them to!
I made this card for my Son-in-Law’s birthday as he is a huge dragon fan. The dragons are from Chocolate Baroque and I coloured them in with Luminarte Silks, gorgeous transparent, luminescent paints! I also stamped two onto transparent shrink plastic, which I also coloured with Silks and then shrunk them. The fabulous sentiment was part of the same stamp sheet from Chocolate Baroque. The background paper comes from a Dragon CD by Jem’s Designs.
