New Challenge #122 at Glitter N Sparkle

And yet again
the hand of fate has struck.

Part of me is say thank goodness this month is finally over,
as most of it has been so hard and upsetting.
We unfortunately have had another death in the family,
my Partners father,
who passed away yesterday morning.

Hence this posting being a day late,
but I am sure that you will all understand.

So this week's card is asking for some peace,serenity
and a new start if at all possible.
Also I loved the look of the Sketch over at Ike's World.

The Theme at
Anything Goes

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Crafty Sentiments who are offering
3 Images from their store.

Ike's Art who is offering
3 Images from their store.

Pattie's Creations who are offering
3 Images from their store.

My 1st Project this
week is:-

Chinese Dragon Digi Stamp
from Ike's Art
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I used an A4 Sheet of White Card
which I folded in Half and cut to make 
a 15.5 x 12cm Base Card.
Next I cut a 15 x 11.5cm piece of
Green Cherry Blossom Paper
then a 15 x 6cm piece of 
Green Written Symbol Paper

Then I printed my Image
  on White DC Paper
and coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens

                                                           Dragon -   Ivory
                                                                              Pastel Beige
                                                                              Dusky Rose
                                                                              Meadow Green
                                                                              Cool Grey 1
                                                                              Cool Grey 2
                                                                              Cool Grey 3
                                                                              Cool Grey 4
                                                           Flowers -  Blossom
                                                                              Dusky Rose

Using a Black Gel Pen to make the 
Lines and Dots on the Flowers,
so they matched the Background Paper.
For some Sparkle I dusted the 
Comb, Eyebrows, Spines and Tail
of the Dragon with 
Iridescent Mint Green Glitter
(Glitter Magic).

Then I cut the Image out
to a 8cm Square.
And using Pearlised Beige Card
(Ross Card)
I cut a 8.5cm Backing Square.

I used a Strip of 2cm Silver Glitter Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
across the middle of the Card.

To finish the Card off
I added a White Ribbon Flower
and 2 Pink Dew Drops
