CAS: Cute Dragon



 This little chap helped me make Top 3 at Crafting with Dragonflies


The theme this week at Less is More #273 is Saints, Dragons or Heroes in honour of Saint George's Day on the 23rd April. According to the legend Saint George, the patron saint of England, slew a dragon to save a maiden in distress. The cards at Less is More  must always be CAS cards.

Here is my card:


The image is a digi stamp from Pretty Grafik Design (who have an 80% sale at the moment). It was printed onto white card and coloured with Spectrum Noir markers. 

A dragon shaped mask was made so that inks could be blended through a Dylusions Lucious Leaves stencil for the background.  I used Memento Dandelion, Nautical Blue and Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers inks.

The sentiment from Hobbycraft was stamped in Ranger Jet Black ink and heat embossed with clear WOW powder.

I'd like to enter these challenges:

Less is More week #273 Saints, Dragons or Heroes

Crafting With Dragonflies week #55 Masculine

Dream Valley Challenges Challenge #130 All Creatures Great and Small
