ABirthday Dragon

I am having so much fun playing with my watercolors these days - my collection of colors cost approximately $13 and I have had them awhile now.  I have only had to replace the white.  Colored this one up for the Outlawz Paper A La Mode Challenge (Anything Goes) and the Splitcoast Stampers color challenge:  Sugarplum, cucumber, and denim. 


The image is from Connie Fong - she is one of the sponsors of the Paper A La Mode Challenge this week.  It is called Torri the Dragon - Birthday Girl.  Precious! 

This card was an adventure.  I started doing the bg in blue, but it wasn't cooperating and I was getting lazy.  I thought about throwing it out, but decided to splatter on some more colors and put on some distress inks.  I ended up loving it more than the original picture in my head (that hardly ever happens!). 

Hope you have a great weekend.  I am off to some garage sales and then my first Grandson's first Birthday party.  Should be fun!

  3. So glad you kept going with this one because the background is outstanding. I love it as much as the precious image. The piercing along the bottom is a nice touch just like the banners along the right side. Fun, fun card. Enjoy the weekend.
