You're Magical Card (CASology Week #367)

Hi everyone! :o)

Yesterday, April 28th, a new challenge started at CASology. This fortnight's cue word is Magical. :o)

I had some unexpected situation and couldn't publish this post on time, so I'm bringing it today. The challenge ends on Monday, May 11th, 2020, 9 AM, CDT (UTC -5).

We also have a sponsor for this challenge: UNIKO. Find all details about the prize over at CASology blog.

And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), You're Magical Card. :o)

Design defined: 
Plenty of white space, a small amount of color and adding dimension gives a CAS card special interest.

How I made my card....

To make my card I CASEd (copy and share everything) my own card that I made two years ago (here). I went with same design, layout, used same products, only went with a different color scheme. :o)

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

I colored an adorable tiny dragon during Kathy's Racoosin 9th 30 Day Coloring Challenge, in February 2018, but didn't use it until now. I still have some images colored during past 30 Day Coloring Challenges that I didn't use on any project, but will surely use them for something. :o)

I stamped the tiny dragon on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the dragon and colored the edges with a black marker. And then it waited in a drawer for two years to be used. :o)

I stamped another dragon on a white cardstock paper and colored it in black. I fussy cut it, leaving a thin white border around the dragon. Then I softened the watercolored dragon with a stylus ball and glued it over the black dragon.

Then 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 it to sit on the banner.

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