Wee dreamy dragon recuperates

This is a get well card for a friend recuperating from an operation. I was inspired by this photo and colour scheme from the Fun with Shapes and More challenges.

The colours were perfect for the little wee dragon and I loved the photo so much I wanted to use the elements to make some papers in Craft Artist.

I used the colour matching on the software to get the right colours for the papers. I added a starfish motif to the background paper and coloured it orange. I then used a waves and chevron paper recoloured to match the challenge pallette. I layered onto shimmery mango card from my stash and coloured all the edges and sponged the edges of the card with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink.

I added sweetheart bloom flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and flower gems from stash.
The Dreamy Dragon image is from Wee Stamps and I coloured it with Promarkers. I added a touch of glitter to the middle of the flowers using my Sakura Glitter Pen. I painted the sky using alcohol blending solution to get a sky effect and then painted colouds using my new Molotow white acrylic pen.

I also made the inside. Using Craft Artist meant I could save ink and money by digitally layering the inside.

    Seen many angels, fairies, birds, butterflies and dragonflies entries for our wings challenge, but this was the first dragon card! Very cool. Thanks for sharing with LLC.
