Stay Calm and Be Awesome!

I really like this image from Star Stampz, and like the general look of this card, but feel it isn't my best work. 
Next project WILL BE better! (Note to self! LOL)

Please visit the Sketch Saturday Blog and see what some of the other girls came up with for Sketch #476, using digital stamps from our weekly sponsor, Star Stampz.


As a mother of boys, I just had to pick this adorable dragon and the scared knight image. But somehow that dragon seemed like she needed to be purple, pink, and teal--not very masculine! I colored the image using Copic Markers.


I added Wink of Stella to the knight's armor--but it had a bit of an issue and released a TON of glitter on the helmet. I did my best to move it around to the other metal bits, so it doesn't seem too bad.
 I had wanted to use some Spectrum Glitter on the dragon, but those are still packed away, so I just used a gel pen to add in some details on her scales. Again, had a little bit of technical difficulties, but I think it will still work!
I didn't like the look of just covering the dragon's tail, or of having the "hill" below the tail...so I used an Exact-o blade to cut the lowest part of the dragon's tail, as well as the stick, so they could lay on top of the green hill.  

I decided that I wanted to ink in some green grass and blue for the sky, so I had to mask the images. Cutting the masks was a pain in the butt! LOL I recently learned about Moloto Masking Pens, which would've made it a LOT easier, but didn't have time to get one before this project, so I just used Post it Tape. Then Stampin Up inks for the shading.

The sentiment is from a retired Stampin up set that just seemed perfect for this fearful knight! Finally, I added some green sprigs to add some interest to the grassy area.

I'd appreciate your comments, and to have you check out Sketch Saturday as well! If you make a card using their sketch, please share it here too!
