Laughter in the Rain
I had so much fun with this card. The background was made by sponging ink on a piece of large plastic ribbon. I'd had it for ages and just came up with this idea. I thought it went so well with the dragon's spots. They kind of remind me of dragon scales. What do you think? I also love his bright yellow skin. I've always coloured my dragons green so I really enjoyed the change. This is going to open up some possibilities. The flowers were coloured with copics. I just love this technique! I'll never buy anything but white from now on. The dragonflies were given to me by my friend. They are from a Creative Memories punch. I tend to be careful of using dragonflies on my cards since they have been adopted by the palliative care society here in BC. I sometimes worry about sending an unintended message. My mother would be so offended by having a dragonfly on her card - as if I was wishing ill.
What I really like about this card is that without a sentiment and with such bright colours it can be used for so many purposes: birthday, encouragement or just because.
