Myth and Magic

Hello there,

This one was scheduled, as we are enjoying a little sunshine along the East coast (hopefully!) - so I hope it arrives where and when it should! Lol.

We have a new challenge starting over at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week Caz has chosen the theme of


Here's what I created for my DT inspiration ...

Now, this is a topic that I love - anything mythical, magical (or fantasy for that matter) - so away I went to see what I could find. I decided to use this gorgeous little dragon image by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff and coloured it with just a graphite pencil, shading it with a paper stump. I have also picked out some tiny areas with colour too, just for highlights. 

It started out as a card, but while I was colouring my daughter came home and popped her head around the craft room door to see what I was up to. 'Ooo, I like that - what's it for?' she asked. I told her it was for my blog 'And then what?' she asked, grinning! Needless to say, it has now turned into a little hanging plaque which will end up in her room (as she also shares my love of the theme)!

I hope you will come and join us over at the challenge.
Hugz, Jan xx

  3. Hope your little summer break has been refreshing and wonderful. I adore your little dragon, your colouring is spot on, cleverly coloured with a pencil and paper stump. A fabulous new technique. Pleased he has ended up as a hanger and not a card. Thanks for your wonderful inspiration for Cardz 4 Guyz. Caz DT
