My last Challenge at Delicious Doodles

Good morning!

Well.. today marks my last challenge at Delicious Doodles :(  I'm so very sad!!  The theme for this challenge is Welcome In The New Year. Okay.. I think I went a little off mark here LOL But I wanted to make something nice and different for our last challenge. So just think of this as a Welcoming in the New Year with your friends! ;) And it is a Christmas Gift for my daughter.. so she gets to begin the new year with a new box!

For this challenge I used Endless Love which you can still pick up until the end of the year at Delicious Doodles.  After that her images will be at Card Making Downloads. Okay... so I created a box. I used Golden Gel Mediums Light Molding Paste to add some texture on the box. I also cut out some different gears and layered them in the paste around the box.Then I painted the box with dark purple, the gears were painted with gold paint and the edges of the flowers. I added some leaves to the flowers around the box, added a gem in the center and ribbon around the edge of the top. I also added a blingy swirl on the top. Everything was covered with a couple of layers of Matte Mod Podge. The image was colored with my Copic markers and I tried to give the dragon some texture with the dots.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin:E000, E00, E01, E11, E13
  • Fairy Wings: V0000, V000, V01, V12, V15
  • Dragon: V12, V15, V17, BV08, 0
  • Dragon Eye: G000, G07, G19, G29
  • Heart: R24, R35, R46
  • Hair: C3, C5, C7, C9; G000, G05, G19, G29
