Can Dragons be Cute?

Thank Crunchie it's Friday which also means it's Fab Friday at Tiddly Inks.  I've got a little trio of cute dragons to share, each on their own tag.  They're quite large so I cut the tag shapes by hand.  The edges are dimpled using a dressmaker's wheel and inked to give them some visual texture.

Walkies

Today's card is the first inking of a Xmas gift from a lovely blogging pal.  I've coloured her in Copics and added some clouds with my shimmer chalks.  The papers were so pretty that I didn't want to cover them up, so the embellies are minimal.  I thought they looked a bit vintagey so I used lace instead of ribbon for a change and think it looks much softer.

This project is to support the challenge at Sugar Bowl and also there's a new challenge at As You Like It Challenge.

Bunny Hop

I needed to make an Easter card for my brother-in-law and this is how it turned out.

I admit that it's still cute, but it passed hubby's approval.

Although I'm sure I caught him rolling his eyes as he nodded his acceptance.

Long Time No Tilda

I've not used a Magnolia Tilda image for what seems like ages, so I've ended her hibernation with today's card, which uses one of my favourite Magnolia images.

She's been water-colour painted with DI reinkers, and boy did I find that hair difficult!  I spent at least an hour just on her locks!  But by the end of it I was quite pleased with the finished result.

She's for a colleague's birthday which is in a fortnight's time.  I just hope she likes pink!

Spring Bunnies

I'm not doing too well with the New Year's Resolution because this is one of my new stamps from WRS.

I'm trying not to neglect my older images though, and want to have a mini-mission to use some of my existing stash.

But today isn't one of those days! :0)

Happy Mother's Day

I've made a gift for my MIL for Mother's Day using the image I'm showcasing today, and I wanted to make a card to match.  She's called PomPom (the image, not my MIL!), but I think she must be retired now as I can't find her in the store.  She was one of my earliest Lilis and she's been one of my favourites, but I've been busy with new images lately and haven't used her in a while.  So today I'm rectifying that. :0)

The sentiment was printed on vellum using Word (I created an arc in WordArt to match the curvature of the image panel).  I stamped and painted the image in DI reinkers, and used some of my favourite Maja Design papers (I may be a teensy bit addicted to these).  The ribbon actually matches the image more than it appears in the photo, and I added a die cut butterfly (another neglected item in my stash).

I hope it motivates you to dig out your old favourites for some reminiscing!
