Dragon's Breath

      This is another of the stamped images snail-mailed to me by a friend after I lost my entire collection of digital images in a flash drive crash.  I'm not sure how she did the circle behind the wizard but it's a fantastic addition to the image.

     I used water colors, ProMarkers, and added white gel pen to his beard and on the dragon smoke.  The image was cut with a Tonic Studios die and I inked the edges.  I first tried the image on a white card front but it just didn't give the nighttime look I wanted, so I swapped that out with black CS and thought it was perfect!

     The sentiment was printed and cut by hand.  I wanted a completely simple card because it's intended for a male recipient who just isn't into fuss or frou-frou of any kind.

Wow, what a very cool image! I love the "dragon smoke" and your details with the gel pen and your watercolor! So glad you're at least able to get some images to play with! Fabulous card!

What a fabulous card with this gorgeous image! So sorry you lost all your digis! I had a faulty flash drive some years ago and many of those digis are now only showing up partially and are useless. So frustrating!
Thanks so much for joining us at Allsorts challenge!
