This week our theme at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge is as easy as ABC, where "A" is for Apricot (or peachy, orangey colours), "B" is for Bling, and "C" is for Cute Critters. In order to be eligible for our prizes from our two sponsors The Paper Shelter (offering a fabby $10 Gift Certificate) and StampFairy (kindly supplying four digi images )you will need to create a card or a project that complies with ALL THREE elements of our theme.
I have been admiring this cute dragon critter at The Paper Shelter for ages and I finally got my hands on it. I just know that it is going to become one of my favourites. I printed the image directly onto my Basic Grey Curio DP and also onto white several times so that I could colour him with my Copics and Promarkers and layer him up with silicone glue. My card is for our son-in-law but I saw no reason not to use a cutesy image given that the papers and black mats make for a more masculine card.
For the Bling element, I decorated my cake with pearls and clear "half beads" and added stickles to the the beads and the frosting. I also added some Craftworks candy. The candle and the dragon's hat have been glazed to add more shine and the candle flame is also stickled. It's actually very sparkly for a boys card but I really like it.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Basic Grey - "Anything goes"
Sir Stampalot Challenge - "Anything goes"
A Spoonfull of Sugar - "Happy Birthday"
Simon Says Stamp - "Food and Drink"
Crafty Creations - "Red, Orange, Green"
