Dragon Training 101

     There's a new "Anything Goes" challenge at Through the Craft Room Door today and we have a wonderful sponsor in Little Blue Button.  They supplied images for the DT to use and I chose this adorable little "Princess Eris," who's obviously working with the fairies to get her dragon trained.  OK, I can hear some of you (most of you?) saying, "Where are the fairies?"   Don't you know you can only see fairies if you truly believe in them?

     I colored her with ProMarkers and Copics, then added some glitter pen to her crown and the dragon's wings.  She's cut and matted with two dies from Spellbinder's.  The purple dp is from DCWV, "Violet Leaf" stack.  I added sparkly ribbon and a bow and little gems for some additional blingy sparkle to the die cut corners and the ribbon.

Very pretty Connie, Love the purple and Blue and those three little gems add a sweet, soft touch. I was sore sorry to hear about your strep throat. That is so very painful and you had it so long. Glad you are back in the saddle again.

This is so sweet. It reminds me of the Donita K. Paul books where he has 'minor dragons' that are about the size of a house cat. I love her books.
