Dragons Lair Designs Freebie Challenge

Every month on the Dragons Lair Designs Facebook Page there is a progressive challenge. A free image is made available and the only stipulation  is that if you request the image then you are agreeing to make a project with it for the challenge. If you do not make the project you forfeit your entry to the next challenge. This time around it was a bit of a scramble as there was not much time to do it and it was over Christmas but I managed, it was too cute an image to miss out on.

Materials used:SAM_2576(watermarked)
Free image from Dragons Liar Designs Facebook Group
stamping card
designer paper from stash

grey card
shimmer paper
white A5 card blank

Britannia dies leaf die
silver star embellishments from stash
Polychromo pencils

Copic pens
sliver pen

Print out the image at the required size and colour with Polychromo pencils. Cut the image to size then mat with grey card and layer onto designer paper leaving a narrow border each time.

Cover the front of the card blank with a slightly smaller piece of designer paper.

Attach the topper to the card front.

Cut several sets of leaves from the shimmer paper and colour with Copic pens. Arrange in decorative swag and attach to the card front below the image. Add a scattering of silver star.

I was trying to get my leaves to mimic the swag that the little duck/goose is holding but I did not have any ribbon narrow or light enough to add to it.

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
