Hello to you.
Beware, beware because here be dragons!
It is St George's day today and over at the Less is More challenge we have the perfect theme for you. This week we'd like to see
Saints & Dragons or Heroes.
I've definitely gone with a theme of dragons for my DT cards! One for Harry Potter fans, one oriental themed, one masculine themed and one cute one too.
First for the oriental one which was amazingly quick to make.
The image from the Tanda Stamps 'Dragon and Fantasy Set 1' was stamped in archival black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I cut around the image and added it to a layered panel.

Next I have my Saint George and the dragon image. This image is perfect for masculine cards and I use it a lot.
The Tanda Stamps image from the 'Medieval Knight Set 1' was inked up and coloured with watercolour pencils.
I added a wink of stella to St George's armour then inked the panel up in clear versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder a couple of times to create a tile.
This was added to a couple of paper layers, and the sentiment was computer generated.

Now here is my cutie-pie image.
The Lisa Victoria 'Bubbles' stamp was inked in cobalt blue archival ink and coloured with water colour pencils which I went over with a water brush.
Glossy accents were added to the bubbles.
A wink of stella was added to the dragon.
The sentiment is from hobbycraft.

Finally the Harry Potter themed card. The quote
'Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus'
comes from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone (or Sorcerer's stone depending on which country the book was published in).
That means...Never tickle a sleeping dragon. Pretty apt for this little image from Funstamps called sleeping dragon.
It was simply coloured in Promarkers in Apple, Grass, Emerald, Lush Green, Cool Grey 1. 3 & 5. The image was raised on 3d pads and the sentiment was handwritten because my printer conked out (bet you never would have guessed!
Well my fellow teamies have created some amazing inspiration for this one so do hop over to our challenge blog and take a peek. You never know, if you visit their personal blogs you may find even more samples to ogle over.
I can't wait to see what you all create this week.
