magical dragons...

  • my favourite things- magical dragons (stamps & dies)
  • SU!- made for you
  • mama elephant- landscape trio dies (before starting this card, i used the cloud die and some template plastic to make a mask)
  • tattered lace- circle dies
  • tim holtz 'tumbled glass & broken china' ditress ink pads
  • memento 'tuxedo black' ink pad
  • copics- V17,15,12. Y38,35. YG25,23,21. RV14,13. E42,41. C00,1. 0.
  • sakura micron '01' pen
  • white funky foam
  • white cardstock
I cut a piece of cardstock slightly smaller than my card blank to form a matt. I created a sky background using shades of blue ink and a mask (I created my own mask using the landscape die to form the clouds). I arranged 4 different sized circle dies according to the sketch and die cut them from the matt. I edged each aperture on the matt using a micron pen to create faux stitching. I also stamped a sentiment in the bottom corner of the matt, following the sketch. I temporarily placed my matt onto the card blank, then glued each cut out circle down onto the card blank in its original position. I removed the matt from the card blank and prepared my images.
I stamped, coloured and die cut my dragon images. Since you only see the top half of the dragon and the rest is trimmed off to fit neatly behind the apertures, I only coloured the areas which would be seen. I used the 0 copic marker to add texture/ scales to the dragons. On the reverse of the sky matt, I glued each dragon behind a circle so they were peaking through. I added funky foam (you could use foam tape instead) to the entire back of the matt, then glued in position on my card blank, ensuring all the circles lined up.
