Year of the Dragon


“The Year of the Dragon” is the current theme for the Stamping Dragon Challenge. Simply use a dragon on your project to enter in the fun and maybe win a few free images. It is sponsored by Dragons Lair Designs where they have dozens of perfect images for this theme.

This card is made  mostly with American Crafts Cardstock. The oriental theme border and the little black swirl where both cut on my Silhouette Cameo. The red fiber and the little medallion both came from my stash. I also used Charcoal Tim Holtz Distressing Ink around the edges of everything. The image itself was colored using Copic markers. The dragon has C00, C1, C2, C5, C6, W0 and W2. I intensified the shadows on this image so it would look like most of the light was coming from the lantern.

I've shared this card with the following challenge sites:
