Cute Card Thursday - Magical Animals


I am praying this works as I have been trying to upload photos all day and Blogger wouldn't have it!
This cute dragon was brought specially to make my son's 3rd birthday card - hence the 3 star brads. It is my 3rd attempt after the ink ran on my beautiful first attempt that I did with Cathy's distressed inks (which she took home with her :-( ) The second attempt the paint ran again on the edge of the wings, so on the 3rd attempt i used my sakura pen for that part instead and voila. The main part of the dragon has been coloured with H2O's, and I have used 2 shades over laying on the tummy to give a greeny silver effect (sorry light poor her to show the shine). I have also decorated the inside of the card - not shown with the dinosaur papers from the same pack of basic grey. I hope you like x
