I Heard You Were Dragon – CTD434

You guys! It’s been over a month, but I finally got crafty again!!! Thanks goodness for good friends and regularly scheduled Crafty Saturdays! I can’t remember when I went this long without crafting. I moved at the beginning of January. And I had to clear out my storage unit. So my life for the last 2-1/2 months has consisted of moving boxes. So. Many. Boxes. Right now, I have a temporary craft room set up in my living room. My craft room is currently filled with boxes I need to sort through after emptying my storage unit. Anyway, Crafty Saturday gave me an excuse to take a break from boxes, pack up my crafty things, and spend the day crafting with friends. I took the opportunity to play along with the Color Throwdown. I used gold ink to color this cute little dragon’s horn, wings, claws, and belly. I used copic markers for the rest of him.



Stamps: Macical Dragons, Wavy Colring Book BG (MFT)
Paper: Smooth White, Cement Gray, Black Licorice, Gold Sparkle (MFT)
Ink: Black Licorice Hybrid, Cement Gray (MFT); Delicata Gold

So here’s a pretty good clue that I’m running short on time – I make a card with no stamping involved. But, when it’s 9:30 on Sunday and tomorrow is a work-day, you do what you have to. 😉 So this is my (non-stamped) card playing along with the Color Throwdown.



Stamps: None
Paper: Primitive White, Kraft, Gravel Gray, Wild Cherry (MFT)
Ink: None
Dies: Stitched Flowers, Words for Friends, Blueprints 13 (MFT)
