No Better Friend

It has been so much fun guest designing for Whimsy Stamps these last few months! Here's one more card to share.

This little dragon from Whimsy Stamps is irresistible... his name is Freddie. So cute!

I started off my coloring by misting the watercolor panel and dotting in some paint with a wet-into-wet technique, and that gave me the undertones for the dragon as well as a matching background color.

I added in more details with Zig and Akashiya Sai markers and a little more watercolor.

Here's a look at the full background panel - I did this in 3 layers on my Gelli Plate - 1) a solid light yellow layer, 2) a layer of darker yellow pressed with an open embossing folder, and 3) a stenciled layer of light green.

Here's the combination - and the dragon image actually fronts a mini card that's mounted on a flat card base. The sentiments are from a new clear set called Magical Birthday Wishes, which is full of sentiments that are perfect for whimsical and fantasy stamps!

So much cuteness! I'm adding this to my etsy store - I've got a few cards in there, tucked in with the usual pendants and prints. Take a peek! 

I've got one more Whimsy project to share - next week! Take care!
Thanks for stopping by!
