I am so excited.....so I need to share it...
Before I get to my latest card, I have some news. Those that know me will remember that I used to be a member of the Stamping Dragon design team, due to changes in the company the design team had to be downsized and so I had to go.
Stamping Dragon in all its forms has now been taken under the umbrella of the name Dragons Lair Designs...and I was asked to come back on board with the Challenge Blog to help the new design team leader....then she had to step down due to ill health...and I was asked to step in.
With much trepidation I had to agree, the Dragons have always had a special part of my heart and I had missed them....
I have managed to write my first Challenge Blog and am so looking forward to what lies ahead.....I only have a couple of DTs and only tried for one other. I have only applied for DTs for designers that I already use their designs and who I respect and I am quite happy with my two special DTs
So, on with the card,
ANYTHING GOES at Dragons Lair Design Challenge
I almost forgot about my own card but soon managed to have a play,
I used Jiggy's Autumn Leaves
I coloured the image with promarkers and gave it a subdued background by using cream and grey ranges of promarker all over and then using a blender pen over the top of it all. I find that, not only are the colours lightened, but it also gives almost a sponged look...
I had a pack of papers and card that I found in Lidl years ago, one of the pieces was Autumn leaves with some of them glittered and glazed. I mounted the image onto orange card and then cut the leaf card to size, rather than losing the leaves behind the image I decided to cut around some of the leaves and use them like photo corners...
I really liked the way that the leaves had the glitter but the glaze over them stopped it being too rough and bright....
So that is it, a new role and a new card...
