Not so much dragons more Dragons Lair Designs Facebook Challenge. This is a new progressive challenge I came across while catching up with various groups and friends on Facebook. The Dragons Lair Fan Page is a closed group so you need to request to join. You then request the image on the understanding that you will make and post a project using it. If you do not enter you will be excluded from the next freebie image. The image for the current challenge is a great one for those tricky male cards.

acrylic greetings stamps
black archival ink
red, black, and cream card stock
15cm white square card base
various designer papers from stash
I printed out my images to the required size, one for a card and two for ATC’s, then coloured them with the Copics. I cut the background from the centres of the images and backed them using designer papers then cut around the outer edge of the images to form my toppers.
For the card I used the card blank to make up an easel card and covered the front and inside with the red and cream card leaving thin border of red one each edge. I attached the topper to the front then stamped ‘cheers’ in the bottom right corner. I stamped ‘happy birthday’ onto a scrap of the cream card and matted it onto a slightly larger piece of red card then attached it inside the card with foam pads to make the stopper.
To make up the ATC’s I cut the blanks from red card then added a smaller piece of black card on top before attaching my image. I used the ‘cheers’ stamp on cream card matted onto red card and attached it to the bottom of the ATC.
