Art Impressions Challenge - Child's Birthday

This week's Art Impressions Blog challenge is Child's Birthday.

Sharing another Front and Back card to celebrate a special birthday.  I started with the idea that this would be a card for a little boy, but actually it will also work for a little girl who digs dragons!

I stamped this cute, friendly dragon onto Cryogen and also on a piece of design paper. I stamped the block birthday image onto design paper.

I colored, cut and glued the design pieces onto the dragon. Next, I had to think about placement, considering how much of his face will show on the inside. I laid my pieces over the front of the base card, trying different size die cuts to see what would work. I used a pencil line to mark where the die cute will be set.

On the outside I drew in a frame with dots and added a ground for the dragon to stand on. On the inside I placed the block birthday design paper - I lightly colored in the letters. To give the dragon texture,  I dabbed the Copic 0 blender pen in several random spots.
