DRAGONS LAIR DESIGNS CHALLENGE 'Hearts and Flowers'


Another DT blog....back with the Dragons Lair today....and with romance in the air it is a time for 'hearts and flowers'

I decided this month to use one of the card kits from the Dragons Lair STORE, I usually use the
digital images or papers and elements from the different collections but there are some gorgeous card kits that you can make as are or embellish to your heart's content...


This card comes with the card front and pyramage, a tag and a flower and a matching insert...I tend to like extra dimension and so printed out an extra sheet and so I could decoupage the actual frame too.....


I have developed a bit of a fascination with nail varnish and the way they can be used on cards, I tend to pick up a new type each time I am in a eurostore (poundshop) and this card has three very different types on it....
The moon is covered with a clear varnish that has gold hearts in it.....


The flower has one of my favourites, it is a lovely rich black with very fine glittery colours in it, I went around the edge of the petals and from the centre of the flower. The flower centre and around the tag (which I threaded some ribbon through ) I used my newest find....a liquid gold varnish, I have a silver too that I can't wait to try.....


I couldn't decide whether to use the insert cut around the edges or not and so I actually used one whole and placed a trimmed one on that, it makes it look very lush...


Please pop over to the Challenge blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have done and enter your own projects....

I hope you liked this and thank you for popping by.....love and hugs xx
