Clearly Besotted Teasers | Blow Out The Candles

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted April 2019 Teasers. Today I am using the new Dragon Plushies set. Oh my cuteness! It is adorable! I thought it would look cute to have the dragon flying up above the clouds blowing out the candles on his cake.

I started off by stamping the dragon, flames and cake from the Dragon Plushies set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured them with Copic Markers (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section) and fussy cut them out (but there are coordinating dies if you do not like fussy cutting!). I then took a Memento Marker and went around the edges of the images to neaten them up. These were then set aside while I worked on my background.
I took a panel of watercolour paper and applied Distress Inks on to it using an ink blending tool. I used Black Soot, Seedless preserves, Chipped Sapphire and Mermaid Lagoon. I then spritzed it with Sheer Shimmer Spritz, as well as adding some larger drops by flicking the nozzle. I also added splatters of Picket Fence Distress Paint for some stars in the sky. This was set aside to dry before adding it to the front of an A2 white card base.
I took a panel of white cardstock and cut the top edge of this using the cloud die from the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio die set. This was added to the card with foam tape. I then added the cake, dragon and flames with a combination of tape runner and foam tape. I added Hero Arts Snowfall Glitter on to the cake for some added sparkle. I took the sentiment from the Small Sayings set and stamped this on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Iridescent Jewels and added black glaze pen to the dragon's eyes.
