Rainbow Dragon Card (RCC #16)

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Rainbow Dragon Card.


This Rainbow Color Card (RCC) is the sixteenth card I made for a Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2018 personal challenge. If you want to find out more about it, just follow the link provided. :o)

To make this card I used stamps from a SUPER ADORABLE My Favorite Things 'BB Magical Dragons' stamp set. I LOVE this set so much!!! Dragons are so adorable... 


How I made my card...

I stamped an adorable Dragon on a watercolor paper and colored him in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the Dragon, traced edges with black marker and softened him with a stylus ball on a soft working mat.

For a background I used 'Oh My Stars! Mini' ARTplorations stencil. First I stamped the Dragon on a white cardstock paper panel and colored him with black marker. Then I placed the stencil on the panel and spread a white structure paste through the stencil directly on the panel. I left the structure paste dry on air. As the stencil is smaller than the panel, I repeated the process until I achieved enough starry background. :o)

After the panel dried completely, I glued it on a white top folded card base and glued colored Dragon over the black one.

Lastly, I heat embossed a sentiment in white on a black cardstock paper, cut a stripe, glued foam tape on the back of it and placed the sentiment on the card.
