September DT Day at Meljen's Designs.

Good morning!

Today is my Design Team Day at Meljen's Designs. And I am loving working with the little dragons, so for this inspiration I have used Sleep Little Dragon and created an ATC with it:

I colored this little cutie up with my Copic Markers. I used the Colorless Blender to add some texture to him. I did a bit of decoupage on him.. his belly is rounded and popped and then his hands and feet are popped as well. I stamped the white paper with a couple of different stamps. I added the green and orange gems. I wrapped the twine in the middle and that is it!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Orange: YR02, YR04, YR09
  • Green: YG01, YG05, YG09
  • Mouth: R39, R59, RV69
  • Tongue: R22
