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!

PROJECT DETAILS://

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!

  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
