Dragon Baby

We’ve got a fun new challenge at A Day for Daisies this’s to Add Sequins.  Easy peasy.  Sequins add that little touch of sparkle that’s perfect for cards.  

I’ve paired this adorable little dragon from the store called Dragon Flight.  I think it’s just adorable, and I couldn’t resist making it into a baby card.  

I printed the digi on XPress It Blending card stock and then gave the guy some really deep blue and green colour with Copics.  Then after he was coloured I added the sequins onto his little belly like scales, and finally spritzed him with Mr. Huey’s Shine.  I trimmed him out and popped him up a little, adding an old SU sentiment onto the design.  

He’s just so cute!  I love the sweet little expression on his face.  My kids are big fans of How to Train Your Dragon, and this reminds me a little of that movie/book.   I added a little tab of seam binding onto the side that I coloured with my B26 marker.  

Here’s the Copics I used.  

And you’ll want to check out the rest of the ADFD Team playing along today to see what they did with sequins, and then join us in the Challenge!
