 I recently purchased the cutest little dragons, prince and princess stamp set from
MFT (My Favourite Thing) and when I was stamping the characters onto the masking tape
I just feel in love with this little character. His face is so expressive.
I stamped him onto the front of the card, coloured just with greens
this time. Time to play latter, I had an idea. So coloured with greens
then masked. I sprayed repositional glue on the Tim Holtz

broken glass stencil and placed it over the top of the masked
dragon. I blended with 'Tumbled Glass' Distress ink and just faded out
as I went rather than do the whole front.

When I peeled back the stencil, you need to remember to go gently cause
it can grab hold of the card and tear little bits off. The spray is fantastic to stop 
movement of the stencil and also prevent anything going under then stencil and when its
a really fine stencil like this one if its not stuck down its very easy to catch the strands
and colour under them.
The card is finished off with this sentiment ' Things are gonna get better' - perfect 
for this card. I think I need and 'Oooops' one as well.
It turned out just how I wanted.

This next card was a quick one. I printed out the jug and flowers which
are images from Power Poppy. Love their stamps but sometimes
I want it digital so I can control the size. Here I have only printed it out in a 
smaller size.

Coloured with Copics yellows, purples and green. The jug is in very pale
blue/green colours.

Cut the image out with my wonky stitched square die second size down.
Used this yellow and white patterned paper and added the 'with love' sentiment, a few
clear drops on the petals and one yellow sparkly up in the corner.

Perfect for a birthday coming up.


With Love card -without using the

With Love Card

With Love card using my favourite Copics.

I think my cute dragon fits the critters.

My dragon with his wonderful sentiment.

I'm hoping my dragon card is CAS enough.

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Oh Aileen, this little dragon is just the cutest I've ever seen, her little face has a look of "I totally understand", just beautiful, and that amazing stencil, my goodness, I love it, it could very well be used as a fabulous spider web. You just reminded me that I need to get some stencils ASAP, I have 2!!!!! this is just not right!!
Your second card is gorgeous, this pitcher of tulips from Power Poppy is divine, those flowers look like you just picked them out from your garden. As always, your coloring is amazing.
Thank you for sharing!!

Both wonderful designs Aileen, I like the fact that you can change the size of a digital image too, it's been ages since I used any digi images.... so much stamping to do and so little time, you know how it is lol.
