Well Hello all,
My oh my it's been awhile since I've been on my blog! For that matter, it's been awhile since I've done any stamping.
We were gone for a little over two weeks on vacation, and had a glorious time. We rented a vacation house on Cape Cod with friends. Nothing but relaxing. Reading, hiking, beaching, dining out, dining in, happy hours each evening on the porch. You get the idea. And boy, it's been hard to get back into the work groove again. Can I say I'm counting the years until retirement. In the scheme of things, it's not too many years away.
On to my card. Yesterday I got out my stamps, paper and ink and made a card for LeAnn's CAS challenge for The Paper Player's . LeAnn's challenge is to make a CAS children's birthday card. (happy 4th birthday to Cassidy) Before we left on vacation, I received some new stamps from Sugar Pea Designs and I had ordered this super cute dragon set. I knew it would be perfect for this challenge.
I stamped this little dragon onto white card stock with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored him with Copics. I moistened a textured paper towel with Colorless Blender and blotted the dragon's body to make the skin bumpy like "scales". I masked him and stamped the dashed border three times, once each in red, yellow and orange. I trimmed the image, rounded the corners and added the baker's twine, then used some dimensionals to adhere to the card base, also in white. The sentiment comes with the set. Lastly, I added some yellow Stickles to the flame on the cake and some glossy accents over his eyes, toes and cake icing.
