Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #527-Shades of Green

 Hello my Crafty Friends!!!

Today I am here with a card for the new Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #527-Shades of Green. I used a digital image from  WWW.CRAFTYSCRAPPERS.IN, our sponsor for this challenge. 

Isn't this little dragon a cutie? 

Below is the badge for this weeks Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #526-Shades of Green.


I used a photo program to make this little scene with the clouds and my little dragon. I printed it out twice-once on printer paper and once on *Neenah White Cardstock. I started out by cutting masks out of printer paper, covering the clouds and the dragon, and then shading the background using *Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

Next I used my Copic markers to color in the dragon and shade the clouds a bit. I used a *Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Die to die cut my panel and two scraps of green pattern paper. I adhered all to an A2, green, top folding card base, as shown. 

I then did a technique I have NEVER done before to get the little "scales" on my dragon. I used a two colors of green colored pencil-a dark green and a light green-and made tiny circles all over the dragon. This gives the illusion of scales!! I LOVE how it came out!!

I covered the clouds and the wings with a *clear shimmer pen. I used *Glossy Accents over the horns and the wings to make them stand out. My last step was to adhere the sentiment, which was also gifted to us. 

I encourage you to come on over and play with us this week. I so want to see your take on this challenge!!! Hope on over to the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #526 to link up your creation!!

That is all from me today. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!!
