Good Afternoon Folks
The SUN is shining but, it is very cold, and it is suppose to snow, no signs yet though.
I was at the hospital yesterday,  with my OH it could have been very bad
( well, when he saw the GP at 10am on Friday, the Hospital phone at 11.30am
with an appointment for the Monday after,) I am likely to panic a bit. However,
everything turned out good, so I celebrated by doing some colouring.
This is one of Mitzi's images from Aurora Wings called
 Dragon Lore.
I was not sure about this as I have never coloured a Dragon before, I knew I wanted
red & black colour combo and not to make a card.
I also used, go on, you can guess! a
Tattered Lace Die just one little leaf die, but, cut lots of times
I  then inked and embossed with clear embossing powder all the leaves, then dabbed them with
 a gold Tim Holz Dabber
Cut 3 frames from Papermill Direct card in red and black. For the top frame I embossed using
the free A4 folder I received with my EBosser then stroked it with Tim Holtz distressed dabber in Brass.
I added some roses ( well I did have to pretty it up a little, I couldn't go completely dark)
and some brass corners, butterfly and skull, with red gems for the eyes.
I would really like to know what you think, and if you have any suggestions re
colouring of the Dragon
