Stamping Dragon Design, Challenge, "Frames"

YEAH Im SOOOOO excited.. I made the DT for Stamping with the dragon challenge blog.. I just love these wee guys, the stamps are SOOO cute, so when I saw the DT call, I just had to give it a go.. And yeah me, I got it :-)

So here it is. The first challenge of the year.. Going live TODAY.. The sponcers this time is Stamping Dragon Designs  and the first prize is 4 digi stamp from the shop. A fab price.

The theme is frames... and here is my design.


  • First print your chosen stamp and leave to dry over night, to prevent too much smuding when you colour.
  • Cover your card blank with brown card stock, leaving an egde of the card visible.
  • Then cover the brown card stock with your choosen paper, again leaving an edge visible. My paper is from - Melissa Frances, "kitschy kitchen" paper pack..
  • Colour in your image and add to the card.
  • Stamp or print your greeting onto brown card stock and add to the card using foam pads.
  • Draw the faux stiches, and add "glossy accent from Ranger" around the frame.
  • Last, add the gems.
I hope to see you all joining in the challenge.
Thank you very much for stopping by my blog, and THANK YOU for any comments.

Huge hugs, Marleen xxx
