Dragon's Realm

Good evening all

A quick post from me tonight.  I made this card last night using Jem's Designs Dragon's Realm.  Oh my there are some fabulous dragons on here and all have been given names too.  I hope you like what I have made.  I enjoyed taking it into my graphics programme and playing.  With the postage going up at the end of the month I wanted to see if I could get the same effect matting and layering in the programme and here it is.


Recipe & Method

1.  8 x 8 Pearlescent white card has been used for the base card.
2.  Using My Craft Studio Professional programme I have layered the 8 x 8 backing topper along with the topper which I shrunk to fit inside the backing paper. I then print this out and using Spellbinder Die Grande Square cut it out.
3.  Taking the journal into the programme I shrunk this down and then I cut out the label from the sheet of labels and then using the Text programme I added the name of the dragon and changed the colour using the colour picker to match the colour in the topper.
4.  I cut the journal and label out.  I added to brads to the journal and attached with foam pads as I did with the label.  I then glittered the wings of the dragon.

Thank you for stopping by
Hugs

  14. Well, Linda what a lovely treat I have had catching up on all your posts. I have been saying wow! at some and smiling at your amusing ones like the little girafellina. Then I want to thank you so very much for all the lovely comments you have left on my blog and on Kanban facebook. Your support has meant the world to me and,knowing how busy you are, are even more dear to me thank you. Now onto your card. It is totally amazing and it really typifies what is now being called "hybrid" crafting; you have used the design to suit exactly what you want and altered it to get the effects you like and then hand crafted (beautifully) to finish your project. I love your design,Linda and that mini journal is amazing. Vee xx

  24. It's a great disc isn't it... my grandson love dragons and dinosaurs and I think the images are very generic. Lovely card Linda, wish I could find more time to craft at the moment. Love seeing what you make!
