Green and Purple Jiggy

This week’s challenge on Stamping with Dragon is “Anything Goes.” Two people will have a chance to win:
-One random winner will receive a free $10 gift Certificate from our sponsor Di’s Digi Downloads.
-A second winner will receive a free Stamping Dragon image as well as a guest place on the Stamping with Dragon DT. Simply use a Stamping Dragon image on your entry to qualify for this second prize. You’ll find all the images at our store here.

This Green and Purple card was made with two images from Dragon’s lair Designs, the classic Jiggy image and the green pattern paper from the Gentle Waves Cardmaking Pack. I colored Jiggy with Copic colors V01, V91, V93, V95, YG03, YG61, YG63 and G40. He is sitting on a puddle with C3, C1 and Coo. After coloring him I painted his wings with a green mica powder and added a few details to his back with my grey Copic Multiliner pen.

To make the card I used velvet purple cardstock from Bazzill, a purple pattern from my personal stash, green brads from My Mind’s Eye and white square eyelets from We Are Memory Keepers. I used my Big Shot to cut the circles with the Nestabilities Dies and emboss with my Sizix swirl envelope. The square brads where colored by hand with my green YG63 Copic marker. I pinched the back with a pair of tweezers and just played around until I liked the look. You can use this technique to color most metal and plastic embellishments so that they match your project perfectly.  

I will be sharing this card with...

Thanks Samara. By the way, the teensy little bow was made with a cheat. I used a fork to make it. Here is the link to my Pinterest post with the How-To for the bow. http://pinterest.com/pin/236368680412464274/
