Dragon Wishes

It's Tuesday which means, another layout challenge for you all. I've popped together something a bit different for today, and I hope you like this weeks challenge. So, here's the layout:

And below is my example. Not only is it an example of this weeks layout challenge, but it's also the perfect example of why I should NOT be allowed to use bold brights and why, I'm still very much afraid of using colours outside monochromatic tones. I am very sorry for this card, but I just couldn't get it right and I ran out of time to re-do it for the fifth time.

I've used my cuttlebug embossing folder for the 'dragon scale' look. I've also tried to draw little dragon footprints around the edge of the card. The image has been water coloured with watercolour wonder crayons...my favourite colouring medium to use.

* Stamp It Dragon Birthday Stamp, Bold Birthday Stamp Set.
* StazOn Black Lovely Lilac & Gable Green Stamp Pads.
* Pixie Pink, Whisper White, Lovely Lilac, Gable Green & Water Colour Cardstock.
* Water Colour Wonder Crayons, Aqua Painter & Markers.

As always, I'd like to show you the creations made by my readers during the previous week. They are fantastic and I'd like to thank you all for once again playing along. For those requiring more information on the cards, if you click on each card picture a hyperlink will move you across to the artists blog if they have one. Of course, the cards below are the cards I know about, so if I've missed you in this post, please make sure you leave a comment so we can find your creation.

Hey! I have an extension now (just a few days but it helps!) so I'll see what I may be able to do!

I finally had a chance to play with one of your layouts. I love this one! You can see my contribution on my blog.
Love the little "feet" border on your sample!
