2 Sisters Challenge 6

This week's challenge is sponsored by Stamping Dragons.

The Prize

The theme this week was monochromatic and we were given a choice of 3 digital images from Stamping Dragons to work with.  OK...I chose Rupert's Wedding.  Have you ever started to make a card and it just didn't seem like it was going to the way you wanted?  Yep...I kept at it and WOW...I really do like this card!
Well..being the image is of dragons, I went with the a green monochromatic card.  Lots and lots of green!  After coloring Rupert and his bride, they seemed to come to life and I was really starting to like them.  Dragons...I would never choose a dragon image on my own, but it allowed me to step outside my comfort zone and work with an image that is probably not really my style.  I colored the image with my markers and added some little gold pearls to the center of all the flowers.  Those teeny, tiny pearls are really hard to work with.  I used a strip of DP from The Songbird paper pack by DCWV (I love that paper pack!).  I really liked how the green leaves went with the dragon image.  Do dragons eat leaves or am I thinking of dinosaurs?  Oh well, the colors matched and that is what I was looking for.  The sheer green ribbon actually started out as a white sheer ribbon and I just colored it with my green Copic marker to make it the right shade of green without having to go out and buy new ribbon.  Way to go...use what you have.  I often do change the color of white ribbon by coloring it with markers.  The sentiment is by Everyday Expressions by The Paper Studio.  I hope you think these dragons are as cute as I do!
