Dragon alert!

Back so soon :)  I coloured this little beauty the other night .... and just completed the card now.

I am so in love with this image .. he is from Stamping Dragon Designs  and if you are a follower you will know that I'm lucky enough to be on the Design Team there ... and you will also know that I LOVE DRAGONS!

I really wanted to challenge myself with colouring him this time, and I always struggle with red so that's why I chose it.

 I just love the questioning look on his face .. he is just lovely.
I coloured him in the following Copic Markers:-
Wings - R14 and then some glitter glue
Body (light areas) R20, R22 and then over the top with C1 just to 'dull' it a bit
Body (dark areas) R24, R27, R29
Leaves - YR13, YG95, E08

The base card is a gorgeous green shimmer bazzill cardstock and I stamped a lovely leaf stamp with a red ink pad to make my own background.

I'm really pleased with this card and to be honest I don't think I want to pass it on ... I think he will sit on my desk for a long time :)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Copic Oz - Complementary Colours
Crop Stop - Challenge #41 Falling Leaves
Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog - #174 Falling Leaves

ok got to go now ... got lots more colouring to do :)
See you soon .....
