Dragon Card

Hello! I hope you have had a great day, mine has been pretty good, especially considering it is a Monday! The weather here has been so nice, it's been hard to go to work. This afternoon when I got off work, I was able to transfer some of my herb plants into pots outside. Hopefully they will all survive and can be used soon in some recipes. I thought this card would make a great birthday card for a little boy. Or possibly a get well card if needed. I usually wait until I am ready to send a card before adding the sentiment. I colored the dragon with Copics (G20, G21, G24 and G28, the belly and spots YG00) and the bird (Boo. B02 and B05). The papers are all from The Paper Studio. I have had a couple of emails asking about the colors of Copics I use and then when I listed them yesterday, I had some good feedback on that. I will try and keep track of the colors I use and will list them when I can.

I am not sure who made this stamp. I have a box full of stamped and printed images waiting to be colored. Most I have stamped or printed from my collection, but there are several that I have either won as a part of blog candy, swapped or borrowed. Since I am not much of a scrapper, when I go to a crop, I will stamp a bunch of stuff or print several sheets of digis to take with me so I don't have to pack everything. Since I am using more digis now, I will print at least two of each image and then several sheets to take me. You know how crops are, I end up doing a lot of talking and visiting so I come home with a few colored images ready to make into cards and then a bigger stack of images to be colored! Right now, I am working on getting these images colored and card ready. Most of them I know the company they came from but there are a few that I am not sure of and this is one of them!

My daughter is trying to complete her "dragon training" by collecting all the How to Train your dragon toys from McDonalds. This card makes me think of her! It's lovely, Gina!
