Graphicus Challenge

I'm really sad about The Next Level not running anymore , due to Anne being ill. It's a fantastc blog, full of inspiration and ideas, so hopefully, it will start up again some time. Mondays just won't be the same without it.

I'm posting a card today made using Elusive Images stamps. I have stamped and masked a dragon, then stamped and masked a tree from the Tall Trees set. I have then used Distrss and Adirondack Inks to colour my background. I then coloured my dragon and the tree base with Inktense pencils and ran a waterbrush over them. I edged my picture, my sentiment, and my paper, which came from my Graphicus Guild paper pack with Brushed Corduroy DI. I love the sentiment 'Meddle not in the affairs of Dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup' awesome or what?

I thought I might enter this card into the Graphicus challenge for July as I have used shades of brown and green within the same third of the colour wheel, therefore falling into the 'Harmonious' category. I might be pushing my luck a little bit, but I really like this image, so I'll give it a go.

Anyway, hope you like it, Judith x

Awesome! Gorgeous images and fab colours. I love that sentiment - I was thinking I might have to put it into a sign for my classroom door!

Great card! Love your use of colour and the fab sentiment, the background is really effective too. Hope you'll visit Bee Crafty's blog and check out the challenge and designs there :)

Oh, I love this! Your background is fab. I've held off from this set as I wasn't sure how to use it, this have given me lots of ideas... :)

I was lucky enough to see this card irl and it truly is a work of art. Absolutely beautiful!

Hope the migraine has completely gone by now Judith and that it didn't spoil your day with Jo and myself too much. I had a lovely time and so enjoyed seeing your gorgeous creations.

Wish you lived closer so I could join in your classes.
