Hello Dragon {Scrapy Land Challenge #63}

It's the first Wednesday of the month and you know what that means 😊....time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge!  The theme for the first Wednesday of the month is always Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.

I needed a quick note card and came up with this one, using the following dies:

Die-Versions: Oriental Dragon
Penny Black: Doodles

I started out by die cutting the dragon from white cardstock and then coloring him with Copic markers.  I then added a greenish/blue glitter over his scales (the company that made this color is no longer in business) and a mixture of light colored glitters was added to the other glittered areas.  (Tip: I keep a bottle of mixed glitter on hand for glitters that have been contaminated with other colors.  That way I don't waste any.)

The middle part of the Sue Wilson Designs die was used for my background and my sentiment was die cut from a strip of leftovers.

Although this is a small notecard size, I know the recipient will love it...both for the subject matter as well as all it's glittery goodness.😀

Now it's your turn to join us for this Anything Goes using any brand of die Scrapy Land carries.  You have until April 16th to join in on the fun.  The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.

While you're visiting the Challenge blog, be sure to give a nice warm welcome to three new design team members.  (You can find their links on the Scrapy Land Challenge.)  

We can't wait to see what you create!

Wow! This is certainly full of drama, Anne! Beautifully colored and glittery, too! (what a shocker!)

I have the SW die, but have only used the outside frame so far. I love this pretty filagree work, and am looking forward to drying it out for myself! Gorgeousness! Pretty spring green colors, too!

Anne, I am so impressed with this design! I love how you've colored the dragon and then added the glitter--it really makes him look like he has slimy scales--fabulous! That Sue Wilson die looks like a must have and it looks great as a background for this amazing dragon. Great idea to save your 'extra' glitters like that--I do that with embossing powders:))

I am super excited to be one of the newest members of the Scrapy Land Design Team! Thank you for the warm welcome! Sending hugs!
