I needed a "missed your birthday" type of card, so I thought of this huggie dragon, who's so ugly he's cute (in a bull dog sort of a way!)
I wanted it to look like he was too late for the party, and all the balloons had lost their lift and were just lying on the floor.
I hand wrote the saying at the top.
Colored entirely with Tombow pens and spread with water.
There is glitter on his pink wings (photo doesn't show).
I did the holes in the green card front using different sized bits in my paper drill. Then dotted around them with a pink gel pen. Fun to do and I love the effect! The pink showing through the holes is a folded pink sheet of paper that I used as a sleeve for the writing on the inside of the card. I love how it made it kind of sort of look like flowers!
I gave the balloons some dimension using glue dots.
I did this card for the color challenge on Splitcoast today. It was fun to do!
