Tori the Dragon Birthday Girl

I’m over on the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends blog today with this adorable image from Conie Fong Art called Tori the Dragon Birthday Girl. When I first attempted to color this image, I did a basic blend of blues and blue greens, but the result was so blended that it was too smooth (duh!). So I started again, this time employing some pointillism enhanced by a white Sukura Gelly Roll pen to get both shading and texture.

My style tends to be clean and simple, but I wanted the layout of the card to reflect the quirkiness of both the image and the sentiment stamps. So I skewed the layers a little bit and tucked a stitched flag die cut in the bottom corner. For the inside, I repeated the off-kilter layout and added a couple more stitched flags.

And here is the inside of finished card!Rowhouse Greetings | Tori the Dragon Birthday Girl by Conie Font
