What’s the time Mr Wolf?

Happy Friday!  It’s a dull and miserable day here in Dorset.  Grey and rainy.  The dog is tucked up in her bed, and I’m catching up with work.  On the bright side, it is perfect crafting weather. 😉

Today there is a fun blog hop going on with SCACD Stamps.  I’m in the hop, but you will need to pop on over to the Quixotic Paperie store blog – Quixotic Inspirations – to see my full card!  Make sure you join in as both Susana at SCACD and myself are giving away some blog candy to commenters.

Here’s a teaser…

My card features the gorgeous “What Big Eyes” from the Susana Loves Stamps range by SCACD, plus a couple of the Dies by SCACD diecuts.

Enjoy the hop!  I’ll be back here on this blog later today with my latest Bellariffic Friday card.

Magnolia World Journal – Ice Dragon’s Holiday

It has been a little while since I first posted my altered SMASH journal, a couple of months actually!  Life has this nasty habit of interfering with stamping plans.  Anyway, I finally got round to some “just for pleasure” stamping and colouring recently and it just so happens that I ended up masking and stamping a little Magnolia Stamps scene.

I have a thing for all things fantasy, especially dragons, so when Lilyrose the Dragon was released earlier this year, I was incapable of resisting.

I masked and stamped the little scene using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card (my absolute favourite for colouring with alcohol based markers) before colouring with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (full details below).

I coloured the dragon with my blue shades, then when finished, used the Colourless Blender pen to go over the colouring and remove spots, to give the impression of scales.  I really like the effect, it adds that little extra detail that I enjoy in a coloured image.

The wording on my page?  *grin*  When Paul saw this, he commented that Lilyrose looked like an ice dragon, so the idea of a cute little ice dragon taking a holiday somewhere warmer came to mind.  I went with that theme when choosing my paper (also by Magnolia).  The stickers are from an Echo Park 12×12 kit.  I embellished with Make it Crafty Lasercut Chipboard and the gorgeous Dies by SCACD – Garden Corners.

That’s all for now!  Hopefully the next little scene will pop up a little quicker. 😉Magnolia Stamps - Lilyrose Dragon Scene - www.quixoticcards.com
