C.R.A.F.T 57 - Inspirational Photo - Purple & Green

At C.R.A.F.T this week, we have an 'inspirational photo' for you to use as your muse!
Aren't those delicious colours?

I had a major problem this week! Despite the fact I chose this pic in the first place, I couldn't find my mojo! I was beginning to panic a little because this has NEVER happened to me before!

We've just come back from a break in a beautiful area of Scotland - Dumfries and Galloway - and I thought perhaps I'd forgotten to pack it or Nic had put it somewhere daft, so i emptied the suitcases and did all the washing but no, it wasn't there.

So I put a small post up with my news about my new DT place and my friend and fellow C.R.A.F.T DT mate Claire contacted me to say I'd left it at her house when we visited her!

Phew! What a relief!
Claire posted it back to me just in time for me to use it for today's project and I'll leave it to you to decide whether my mojo has suffered for its adventure! LOL!

The dragon is one of Phee McFaddell's wonderful images coloured with my trusty Copics. If you care to visit her site, she has some fab 'freebies' (legal ones!)!

I used papers from DCWV's 'Once Upon a Time' set and altered the colours with my dye inkpads (Adirondack and Archival were the only ones with strong enough colours to make a dent!) and encrusted with 'gems' for the dragon to feast on!

That's pretty much it really - those papers do all the work!


  1. I love your dragon - fab card - very medieval indeedy. I'm sure your mojo was just giving me a wee hug - certainly didn't leave you for long! Cheers Claire x

  2. love this, so lush, love the way the jewels are around him, makes the card complete

  4. Gorjuss!
    What a fab idea with the gems!! Reminds me of Harry Potter hee!
    I love going to Dumfries and Galloway, gorjuss walks there for the dog!
    Hugs Melly xx
