Me and My Dragon - Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight

Hi there! Today Mama Elephant is featuring ME AND MY DRAGON stamp set and coordinating Creative Cuts for Stamp Highlight. This amazing set of the cutest dragons definitely has become one of my all-time favorite!

My card today is an encouragement scene card with a fun wobbling dragon. I used ME AND MY DRAGON set along with the new Kingdom Trio Creative Cuts, they go perfectly together. Let's take a look!


To begin, I stamped the dragon and the little girl with light gray Copic friendly ink on smooth white cardstock for no-line coloring. I colored the images with Copics. It's hard to see in the photo but I created texture on the dragon by dabbing him with a small cheesecloth that was dampened with Copic Colorless Blender. I also used a white gel pen to add details and highlights. I went over the eyes and nose with Black Copic Multiliner darken them.

I die-cut the city panel with black cardstock with a die from 
Kingdom Trio Creative Cuts. I lightly applied white pigment ink with a finger dauber and added details with a colored pencil to add interest. I stamped the sentiment on this panel and embossed it with white embossing powder.


I die-cut the mountain panel using dark blue cardstock with a die from Kingdom Trio Creative Cuts. I also added white pigment ink here as well. 

I created the night sky on the A2 sized front panel using Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, Fired Brick and Black Soot Distress Oxides. To make the stars I splattered Copic Opaque White that was diluted with water.

To assemble the card, I adhered the mountain panel to the front panel, with double-sided tape. Then, I mounted the city panel with Foam tape on top of the mountain. Lastly, I taped a handmade action wobbler made of thin craft wire and attached it to the dragon and then to the front the panel to add that interactive fun. The best part of the wobbler for me is when the recipient takes the card out of the envelope the dragon will pop up and wobble on its own. So fun!!! That's it for me today.


You can watch the dragon wobble!
