Now that’s magic!

The theme at Craft Your Passion this week is It’s Magical!We’re sponsored by the talented Didge’s Doodles.For further details on how to play along and for some fabulous inspiration from the DT and GDT’s please visit the challenge blog.

I’ve used Hatched Dragon by Didge’s Doodles.I’ve coloured the image with some Copic Sketch Markers.I was so,SO lucky to win this set from Stamp Something Challenges.I still can’t believe it!They’re the new set of 12 colours. I wanted to use them so badly but was a bit limited as I usually like to achieve depth in my shading when using ProMarkers.So the combinations may be a little quirky and the shading not as deep but the colours do tone well with the papers.I’m still a happy,lucky bunny!I’ve already started looking at adding to them but the prices in the UK are pretty steep.It’s more likely I’ll be going for a set of Ciao’s.Apart from being a bit easier on the pocket I’m not really up on the differences …. if anyone has any advice I’d be grateful.Anyways,back to the card.As this will be a Father’s Day card from my youngest I’ve kept it fairly simple.Just added a punched border (I usually cheat when it goes behind something .Instead of being continuous  I only use the amount of card that shows.I’m frugal,me!) ,some die cut corners and some star gems I’ve had aaaaages.I thought this sentiment suited the image but I will add a Father’s Day message  inside.
