Year of the Dragon by Maartje

Hi everyone! Once again I had so much fun digitally creating a card design with the new release! This one is all about Year of the Dragon, which was also in the year I was born in. I couldn’t just pick 1 design to work with, so I created this card with 3 out of the 5 of the designs.

First I created a design with the Year of the Dragon pattern paper and 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:

  • Dragon: BG53, B00, B000, BV02, BV00, BV0000
  • Branch: E70, E71, E74, E25
  • Fire: YR12, Y11

After coloring I added a few highlights to the eyes with a white gel pen.

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