Me and My Dragon

Just popping in to share a card I made with another of my latest purchases - 'Me and My Dragon' stamps by Mama Elephant.

I stamped and watercoloured the dragon and girl on watercolour paper then cut them out. To make the ink for spritzing the background I just loaded some green paint into an empty spritzer bottle using a wet paintbrush and added a little water. A little goes a long way.  

I tried the same with the grey paint at the bottom, using copier paper to mask off the rest of the card. This left too harsh a line though so I softened it with a wet paintbrush.

Aged to Perfection

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

I found a printed paper in my stash this week which reminded me of the rings you get from a coffee cup/wine glass. Luckily I'd written on the back since I didn't have the foggiest idea where it was from (a free CraftArtist kit called 'Mexican wave').

MFT Comic Strip

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

One of my favourite challenges for inspiration is the MFT Sketch Challenge, the designers always adapt the sketch so well. When I saw the sketch for this week it reminded me a little of a comic strip on it's side
