Fantasy dragon



The request along with this card was Japan, fantasy and manga and a dragon! Was stumped for a while but finally came up with this. The papers are from My Craft Studio (rarely use these papers but this was oriental looking) just played about with the colours. The image is a freebie from google, the little girl, lanterns, and Japanese text are all from Simon Says stamp set. The border is using my fiskars border punch, the circle is from my nellies set. I added some glitter, gem hearts and ribbon.

I printed the dragon out twice, second time on vellum, embossed the wings a little and stuck so they are fluttering. (Do dragon wings flutter lol). The dragon's glitter looks a bit messy but in real life its fine, must have caught the light badly. I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Tuesday morning sketches - followed the great sketch
2. Totallypapercrafts - stitching (mine is faux using my white pen)
3. Critter Challenge - use a critter on your card (think a dragon is a critter)
4. Your next stamp - 3d the image (3d the wings and the little stamped image and lanterns)
5. Daring Cardmakers - emerald
6. ABC - Unused stash (my Crafty Studio cd papers)
