Year of the Dragon: Metal by Maartje

Hi everyone! This dragon is so cute and perfect for a new baby card! He looks like he is ready to begin his adventures with his little bird buddy.

First I created a design with the Year of the Dragon digital stamp set. Normally I work with Procreate on the iPad to create design, but this time I used Canva. This is a free tool you can use in the web, and a good alternative if you don’t have an iPad. If you would like to know how I resize digital stamps and create scenes on in Procreate, you can watch this video on my YouTube channel.

The design I printed out on Perfect Colouring paper. After printing, I colored the image with my Copic markers:

  • BG70, BG10, BG11, BG72
  • B91, B93, B95
  • RV91, RV93, RV95
  • BV20, BV23

After coloring I added a few highlights with a white gel pen. The scene I cut in a banner/flag shape and adhered it with foam tape on pattern paper which matched nicely with the colors used for the dragon.

I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
