Head to Head With The Dragon!

Dragons Lair Designs have a Head to Head challenge on their Facebook page. The idea is that you buy the kit and enter a project made using it. The winner then recieves the next kit free. So I decided to have a go.

Materials used: SAM_2641(watermarked)
Dragons Lair Designs – Watercolour Elements (the shop is undergoing a revamp and I could not find it there so best to request it on the Facebook Page)
printer card
Britannia flower dies (medium and large)
swirl die
gold peel off greeting sticker
self adhesive gems
brown card
PSX Rosa stamp (PSX are no longer trading but you may find it on ebay or similar selling site)
archiveal watering can ink pad
Derwent watercolour pencils
water brush

I really enjoyed getting back to my roots with a bit of traditional stamping! While I do love the versitility for sizing and manipulating that you get with digital stamps, there is still something almost magical in using ink and rubber.

I used the frame from the Dragons Lair Designs kit and put a brown mount inside the appature to frame the stamping.

The flowers are die cut from a paper I created myself using the image lifted from the tag in the kit and repeated all over the page.

The green swirl is one I found in my stash left over from a previous project.

Before I go for today I just want to say a big thank you to all of you who have left such generous comments on my posts, I really do appreciate it.

Thank you for coming by. 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.
