The Golden Dragon

It’s a Fantasy/Fairytale theme at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week.Please take a look at the challenge blog for details on how to play along and be in the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop.Don’t forget to check out the beautiful DT work while you’re there.

And here’s some good news!The sale from last month is continuing throughout September.Check the ad in my sidebar them click on through to visit the store.

For my card I’ve used the delightful Louis & Daisies from Digi Doodle Shop and coloured him with AquaMarkers.This time I’ve used them on smooth card.That’s because I changed my mind at the last minute – I was going to use my ProMarker/FlexMarkers.I also thought it would give the chance to play too.I’m quite pleased how they worked.I’ve teamed him with some K & CO papers and just had to let the little ladybird poke out a the top.I’ve also added a piece of hessian.I found an A4 6 sheet pack in The Works and there are different colours/weaves in there.The flower is die cut from felt and I’ve sandwiched a hessian one between.This is a bit of an experiment as I’m not sure how it will last because of the weave.Dries clear PVA glue has been smoothed around the edges in an effort to hold it together.I did however lose some tiny bits but not enough to spoil the flower.Fingers crossed for the rest of it!!The button atop has been threaded with a strand from where I frayed the piece at the top of the card.Not only does it bring everything together it meant I didn’t have to throw it away!

    Lisa this is gorgeous. The hessian looks great, especially the flower and I love those DPs. Louis looks great as a “golden dragon”!!

    Fabulous layout Lisa and I see we both love Louis. Sorry I am not around a lot but the house move is hectic. Especially when hubby clearing the loft breaks through the ceiling and you are waiting for the insurance assessors! As you know we have sold and waiting to exchange contracts.

    The hessian is a great addition to your card. I really like it. The photo of your dog is adorable. How funny that he would not look at you.
