LOC Challenge 29 - Anything Goes - Dark theme!

Left Of Centre have such a lovely team - really pleasant bunch of ladies and we all love a bit of a giggle!

My very talented teamie Lisa has discovered a real talent for drawing digistamps and has given our followers four of them, which I think is very generous! Hop over there and have a look - you can ask for copies of any you fancy too!

This week the theme is 'Anything Goes' - but with a dark twist!
We have two sponsors this week - Smeared Ink and Limited Runs - do pop over to their blogs too and check out their fab images!

I've had it in mind to add to my dragon digis for a while and have a dragon-mad friend with a birthday on Saturday so I drew a new dragon - Draco -  and here is the card I made for her!  Draco will join his wife Draca and there may soon be the cracking of little dragon-eggs! ;)

I used a sheet of A3 black card scored and folded for the base card. 
I sprayed this with Cosmic Shimmer sprays.
I then did the 'Faux-leather' technique on the front using a Sheena embossing folder to which I'd added a coating of Opalite inkpad in Crystal Blush.

I matted the image onto green/verdigris glitter card and navy plain card which I edged with gold Brilliance inkpad
A couple of antique gold hinges and a brass 'boss' finished the job!

Draco is over on Eiglassing now.

Due to a phenomenally hectic week in which I lost all internet, phone and tv connections amongst many other traumas, I was very late getting this one in this time  - thankfully I have a very understanding boss-lady - I'd sack me! :D LOL!
Hope you like Draco and join us over at LOC to join in the fun!

  1. Hey Teamie - Just so neat. I was sure this was leather! Gorgeous colors. Intense. I like that you describe how you created it...otherwise I would be sure it was leather and not learn from you! Hugs, Samara xox

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely comment Samara - so kind! :) If you're not sure how to do the 'Faux Leather' technique, the instructions are on an earlier post - just scroll back - or I might have put them into 'Techniques and Tips' folder by the time you read this! Hugs Ei x

  3. Why on earth anyone wants to write gobble-de-gook on this page is a mystery to me! Must have a LOT of time on their hands in that padded cell...... ;)


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment!
I will try to respond where time allows.

Lots going on at Chez Eiglas... ;)

I've been home from work now for nearly three months - and it has been wonderful...! I've drawn, painted, had an amazing time with ...
