You Make Me Happy Dragons

Hello Friends!
I worked on these cute little dragons this morning and just took a couple photos once we returned from the movie theatre (We saw Pitch Perfect 3.). I am a bit bummed with the shadows, but lighting is not at its best since it is so dreary outside. I may try to retake pictures tomorrow morning if the sun is shining, but I was excited to get it done.

First, I stamped each dragon on 110lb white cardstock and then heat embossed the stamped outline with clear powder. It helps control the color from seeping outside its lines. I used my new Tim Holtz Oxide inks (faded jeans, broken china, and wilted violet) to watercolor each dragon.

I used this week's sketch from My Favorite Things. A random winner is selected each week and the prize is a $50 gift card to the shop. I hope to win one day!

Lastly, I heat embossed the MFT stamped sentiment from the All About You set with white powder. The black strip sits on pop dots so it is level with the dragons.

Until next time,
