Craftin’ Desert Diva February Release Event Card #2

Okay, I am back again today with another card featuring the new stamp pack Whimsical Wishes over at Craftin Desert Divas.  For me, this little dragon was just begging to becomeek-gorman-cdd2-13-1-copy a little piece of art, so I granted his wished.

I pulled out the dragon and stamped him along with the “Spread you Wings” sentiment onto some good quality watercolor paper.  Then, using my water reactive Stabilo pencil, I sketched out a little scene.  I so wanted it to look like a little baby dragon about to fly for the first time.

I pulled out my Daniel Smith Primatek watercolors and started laying down some color.  I tried to erase the Stabilo marks the best I could, all the while keeping the image dream like in it’s colors.

After letting the image dry, I pulled out my Fancy Frame Dies and die cut the watercolor paper and with the largest die.  I adhered the watercolor paper to an A2 card with 1/2″ Score Tape, my all time favorite adhesive.  (Well, that’s not quite true, 1/4″ score tape is my favorite, but since I was working with heavy watercolor paper, I needed the heavy duty stuff).

I know this is sort of a simple card, but just had to make that dragon his own bit of art work.
