Puff, Missed That One

Hello.  Welcome.  I am one of those late people.  No, not dead!!   Just often a bit last minute.  Take birthdays.  There's a good chance the card will be late, or I remember the week before and then promptly forget, cos I already remembered, and totally miss it.  So this works for me....

I was inspired by the sleeping red dragon cake in the Stamplorations Cutplorations challenge.  I also went with navy and silver that is also in the picture.   I stuck a piece of drywall tape to the tag to act like a stencil and then added blue acrylic paint.  I removed the tape.  OK, not the best stencil in the world but I quite like the broken pattern and how the paint crept under some of the lines, but you can still see the pattern.  I stamped, embossed and coloured the Stamplorations flying dino, who I thought looked a bit dragony, with distress inks and gave him googly eyes, cos you can't go wrong with a googly eye or two.  Then I cut Stamplorations Oh frap! from silver mirror card and embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.  A bit of shot silk ribbon and we are done.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
