Meet Mr. Dragon Pants Face. | Fancy Friday Blog Hop

There he is.
Mr. Dragon Pants Face.
Giving you the stink eye.
A face... oh so perfect for a birthday card.
Wouldn't you say?

Today's project was created for the Fancy Friday Blog Hop team. 
This is a team of current and past Stampin' Up! Artisans so it's safe to say that every month you are in for a real treat. Each month we come up with a theme to help inspire ourselves and all of our stamping communities.  Thanks to Krista Frattin for designing today's colour challenge logo!


Back to that face.
Mr. Dragon Pants Face guy comes from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper.  All I did was cut him out.
Of course, the background of the card is a little more tangly.
First, I applied the Stampin' Up! embossing paste through the brick mask onto watercolour paper. After it dried (or not. more like I didn't want to wait for it to dry.)
...As I was saying, after it dried, I used my emerald envy reinker and an aqua painter to apply some colour to the background. I dropped a couple specks on to the surface as well to look like rain drops.
After it dried... I really dried it this time with a heat gun.
Then it was a "bit of this and a bit of that".

Oh. You noticed the ballon. I cut that sucker right off the one of those Party Pandas (an exclusive Sale-a-Bration stamp set). I cut the twirly whirly string too. I glued it all together and got perfection!

Inside the card, I continued the wording from the sentiment stamp set and added a knight (to fight off the dragon, of course) found in the Magical Day stamp set which I had previously coloured using my Stampin' Up! Blends.

Happy Birthday!

  1. That stink-eyed dragon...I've never seen him used better! I'm kinda scared to look again, though...I think the eye follows me! Ha! Fab card, Cathy!

  2. Such a fun card Cathy! Sounds like how I craft "a bit of this and a bit of that". Such a fun and textural background and the use of the balloon with Mr. Dragon Pants Face is fabulous! Thanks for sharing such a fun card! Love it! Rochelle xo

  3. So stinkin cute! I love this to bits!!
