Uncle Peregrine

Uncle Perry is Rupert's favorite uncle and he's stopping by to say hi. You can find him and all the other dragons in the family at Stamping Dragon Designs.

Spellbinder's Grand Labels Eleven (#6) was used to cut out the card base (and then folded in half) and Wonky Rectangles (#1, 2, 3) was used for the accent pieces.  To give the card base a bit more interest, I ran it through the Grand Caliber with the Retro Circles embossing folder by Sizzix.  I added a little Shimmerz paint to Perry's horns and Copic markers were used to color him in.  I put a little colorless blender on a piece of cloth and ran it over his belly for a faded look.  (Instead of him turning grey like the rest of us, Perry's coloring begins to fade as he gets older.)

You still have time to participate in the Favorite Embellishment challenge going on now at Stamping with the Dragon.

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends!

Copics used: BV0000, BV00, BV01, BV04, BV08    YR000   colorless blender

This is a charming design, Anne. Scrolling down, I have been catching up on all your recent fantastic cards. Love the pop-up soccer dude, and that 3-D butterfly is really beautiful.
