Me and My Dragon

Hello friends! Today’s card features the Me and My Dragon set from Mama Elephant. I immediately fell in love with this set when it came out and I’m pretty sure I ordered it before I even got out of bed on release day. What? That’s a totally normal thing to do.

So I colored the trio of dragons awhile ago, but never got around to turning them into finished cards. I think I was afraid of ruining them? But I finally made the card I’m sharing today.

Techniques Used:

  • No-line Copic coloring
  • Ink blending
  • Heat embossing

As usual, I stamped the dragons and tiny dragon friends in Grout Gray ink from MFT on Neenah Solar White 110 pound card stock. I colored the dragon on this card with an assortment of Copics in violet, red violet and yellow (see supply list for specific colors – I may have missed a few, but that list should cover the main ones). Also as usual, I do a lot of layering when I color – a lot of back and forth between lighter and darker shades. I often add the shading first so that I don’t lose my lines. After coloring all the elements with Copics, I went back in with colored pencil to add details, like fur on the wolves. I added some white highlights with a gel pen.

To make the background, I die-cut the pieces from the Kingdom Trio Creative Cuts (also Mama Elephant) from scrap card stock and used them as a mask, or stencil, to blend in the mountains, sky, and kingdom with Distress Oxide inks (Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and Black Soot). I also cut the terrain die from that trio from some scrap card stock in Steel Grey. I adhered that to the panel with foam tape and adhered the die cut images to that piece, using foam tape for the upper parts of the dragon.

I stamped the sentiment (from the Sentiments from a Yeti set) in VersaMark and embossed it using Brutus Monroe in Alabaster. I finished the scene with some white gel pen stars and adhered the whole panel to a top-folding A2 card base.

And that wraps up this card. As always, thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend! Hope you have time to get crafty 🙂
