You Make My Life Magical Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #187)

Hello everyone! :o)

Yesterday a new challenge started over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is #187, benutze Mini-Stempel / use mini stampsTiny stamps... Love them!! :o) 

And here is my take on the challenge: You Make My Life Magical Card.

I made this card for my sweetheart. ♥ I prefer making non traditional Valentine's Day Cards for him. :o)

How I made the card...

I used stamps from My Favorite Things 'BB Magical Dragons' stamp set.

I stamped an adorable small dragon on a watercolor paper and colored him in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the dragon, colored the edges with a black marker, softened dragon with a stylus ball and glued him over another dragon I stamped on a white cardstock paper. I fussy cut the dragon again, this time leaving a thin white border around him.

And then the dragon waited for 28 days to be placed on a card. I tried this and that, but nothing was "right".

Yesterday, I finally decided and finished the card.

I heat embossed in white a sentiment on a black cardstock paper, cut out a banner, glued some 3-D foam on it and glued the sentiment on a white top folded card base. I glued 3-D foam on the dragon and placed him to sit on the banner.

As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with two enamel dots. :o)
