MFT Dragon cards

I finally broke down & bought the My Favorite Things Magical Dragon stamp set. So Monday evening, I sat down & decided to color me some Dragons. Once I was done, an idea popped into my head & I just had to make a card.
I had bought some Gina Marie banner dies and I decided I wanted to use them. Here is the card I came up with. I used my Prismacolor pencils & gamsol to color the dragon. I stamped the fire/smoke clouds on vellum & then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then cut it out by hand and used my Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter pen to make it sparkle. I also used my SN Clear Glitter pen to color in his horns & wings. I then used some Tiny Star Confetti to put around the card. I decided a kraft color card base would compliment this card.

Sorry the lighting is so crappy, it was 11pm & I couldn't get out of the shadow to take the picture...I'm working on getting a box to take my pictures in. All supplies used will be at bottom of the post.

                  Now onto my 2nd card & the one I am super excited about. I had gotten a brick stencil from Amazon a couple of weeks ago & hadn't used it yet. While I was coloring the dragons, the idea came to me. So I stopped coloring & got some Texture paste, mixed a little Antique Linen Distress ink with it & put it on a A2 card base. Once that was dry, I then used a die (I had gotten it a week ago from a FB resell site so I don't know the name of the die or who makes it, but I LOVE this die, I also got one with circles instead of squares) to make the "windows". I used some Tumbled Glass Distress ink to sponge on some blue behind where the windows would be. I then popped the panel up on some fun foam and applied to a A2 card base. Once that was done, I then put some foam dots on the back of the small characters and placed them in the windows and then glued the dragon on the left side. I used a smaller banner die and used some Antique Linen to sponge the edges & top of the banner & glued right  under the dragon.
I used my SN Clear Glitter pen on the horns, wings, crown, shield & feather in the cap. All supplies used at bottom of post.
I love the depth of the characters on this card.

Thank you for looking at my cards. Feel free to sign up to get notifications when I make & post new cards. My goal is to post at least once a week & hopefully twice a week.
