Dragon Army

  Hiya Everyone, my first DT card today is for 

the 44th Challenge at

 2 Crafty Critter Crazies  

     Now, our November Challenge!

We are excited to be sponsored this month by

The digital stamp has uncoloured and ready coloured images and background and I loved it, then thought I needed a challenge to make this different. My card today is from a second attempt! Why? because I thought Halloween, forgetting this post would be after it! So my second attempt is Winter / Christmas and do you know what I'm pleased with it, I hope you like it too.

I used the uncoloured digital stamp and a background I have used many times, but is perfect for lots of images. I coloured the image and I HAD to have a red dragon of course. (It's on our Welsh flag in case you didn't know!) I paper pieced the image digitally and added the sentiment, it had to be "warm" wishes didn't it? I print and cut it with my Silhouette, when printed the image's skin was paler than I liked, so I coloured the skin with markers. 

I had cut three images out, they were layered, with sparkle pen used on the sword and shield and part of the helmet also the fire and smoke. I added glaze to her eyes. Before I added her to the card, I stamped some trees and added white pen and glitter, also to the snow area of the paper background.

background - Carin Grobe Design (I've had it since 2011)
image - My Little Dragon Army The Paper Shelter
paper pieced papers - Summer Driggs (no longer available)
stamps - Simply Cards & Papercraft #208 freebies
ink - Papermania
sentiment -  Create with TLC 
markers - Spectrum Noir
sparkle pen - Spectrum Noir
glaze - Nuvo Crystal Drops

showing the sparkle and layers,
 although the sunlight has actually made the card lighter than it is.
 I've added it to a tent fold card,
 anyone any ideas how to stop it opening up while placed to display?

I'm hoping to see you in the challenge.

This was my first creation done in Photoshop, the Halloween version, I wasn't going to add it, but actually like it, so thought I would share the digital version with you.
