Dragon Rain - ALASC3

Dragon Rain - Ah! La Carte #3 use their sketch  (they now have a Mr. Linky. Please play along. Thier challenges are really fun!). I loved this little dragon stamp I purchased from Sweet Pea Designs. The first thing I did was brayer the background - sky colors (Color Box sky blue, Hampton Art Stamps tourquoise, Close to my Heart outdoor denim in that order) and ground colors (Encore! Ultimate Metallic green, Color Box olive pastel, Color Box dark moss in that order). Then I stamped the dragon in Stampabilities black. Then I colored with Copics (yr07,e37,yg63,bv23,yg23). I used a black glitter gel pen from American Crafts to outline my image and my Signo white gel pen to add the rain drops. The lotus flower is from Basic Grey's All Natural set and was stamped 3 times in the 3 shades of green inks I used ont he background. Then I used black with the outline stamp. The Oriental elements all came from a RAK from my friend Danielle Brault-Charbonneau in Canada. The flourish is from American Crafts faux leather stickers (yellow I colored orange with my yr07 Copic marker).
*** This will be my last post before the end of the weekend. Going to enjoy some time with family. If you are traveling for the holiday, be safe! If you'r not traveling, be safe!
I hope you all have a truly wonderfully blessed Easter weekend.
