Dragon Potion.

Good morning!!  It is Wednesday.. we are halfway through the week! Yippee!! I have so much to do this week. I'm working to get it all done. We will see how it goes today. If I can get the majority of it done today I will be in good shape! That is is this week.. work work work. I'm trying to craft at night. I'll be coloring tonight. Last night I was able to finish a card I'd been working on for the last couple of days. That is what I am sharing today. This weekend it is races... I can't wait until the weekend. Racing and Crafting... it can't get much better than that.

Here is my card for today:









This is Dragon's Tear from The East Wind. The image is colored with my Copic Markers and I also used Chalk Ola Chalk Markers. I've done a small amount of layering on this image to give it more of a 3D look that he is wrapping himself around the bottle. I've used this image for the Texture challenge at The East Wind Challenge Blog. For texture I've done a couple of things.. I've layered the bottle with Diamond Glaze, I've distressed the edges of the patterned paper, I've added stitching. Not your normal way of adding texture I guess, but I think it definitely added texture. I created the Sentiment and added black, white and purple Chalk Ola dots around the sentiment, in the potion and on the black paper on the outside and the inside. I also added clear Wink of Stella over the potion. Under the Diamond Glaze it adds a bit of sparkle. All of the papers are scraps. I think I've finished up some of my Halloween scraps that I love so much!! The Bump In The Night is a sticker.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Green: G12, G14, G16, G19, G29
  • Potion: W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
  • Red: R20, R22, R24, R29, R59
