Cardmaking

Magical dragons

Happy hump day crafty people!  How’s your week going?  I hope all is well and you are finding some creative time in your week.  Today I’m sharing a card which I am entering in the Back to Basics challenge.    This time the prompt is to use paper piecing in a project.

I had a flip through my stamps and decide to use this cute dragon from a MFT set.  Like many crafters I’m sure, I have a lot of corners and scraps of patterned paper so I pulled out a pretty green piece that I could use for the dragon and a spotty piece for a balloon.  Once I had stamped the dragon I added some alcohol ink and then fussy cut him out.

The white panel was part of a gift with Die Cutting Essentials magazine.  I used a blending tool to add some mustard seed distress ink.  I spritzed it with water and blotted it before sticking down the dragon and his balloon.  I mounted the panel on some yellow card to compliment the ink.  To finish it off I heat embossed the sentiment on dark green card stock (another wee left over scrap!) and added a strip of glitter card.

I hope you like this little sunny card and thanks for popping over to the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog.
