Shine Bright


Welcome to another Challenge at

our theme for this month is 
Anything Goes 



For my card, I am using the image, "Dragobiscus Flower Pot Hatchling" and I used both colored pencils and markers on the image and highlighted the dragon with a couple of coats of 'Wink of Stella' to make the baby dragon really shine.  I cut the image out and a pale lavender frame with a set of stitched oval dies from MFTs.  The dark pink front panel was embossed with a swiss dot folder by cuttlebug.  The pink plaid paper is from Core'dinations.  .  All mounted onto a pink side fold cs base.  I added different-sized sequins to the top corners.

Always Shine


 This was a cute, fun card to make.  

CAS is just stressful for me … I constantly want to fill that white space.  The image is from SheepSki designs and is completed with Ohuhu markers.   I ran out of Wink of Stella (I don't know how I managed that) but before that fun stick came to be there was another and I happen to still have a jar of FantastiX ink in Champagne Mist that I covered over the sleeping dragon for that shine.  Besides the coloring, it's just a lavender card stock base.  

I'm going to add another close-up of the ink on the dragon so you can really see her shine.
