So I wasn't going to post this guy today, but I just love him so much I can't help it... this cute little digi is from Craftin' Desert Divas and was created by Mindy Beverly and he is one of my favorites for sure! This sentiment came to me one night so the card has been rolling around in my head for a while.
I've been using my early Saturday mornings to create some watercolor backgrounds with my watercolors and/or Ken Oliver Colorbursts or both. I am soooo impatient and hate drying time so I thought if I just keep making various colored backgrounds they'll be ready when I need them and I must say... it's worked out great! I created this one a while ago and knew I wanted to make some kind of night time theme with it and my sleepy Dragon was perfect.
Daylight savings has kicked his butt, but don't worry...he's taking his medicine and he'll feel better soon.
Do you like the little steam I made out of vellum? This adorable digi comes with the dragon holding a cupcake, but since I needed him to be hanging onto some coffee, I stamped the coffee cup from the stamp set Got Coffee, colored and cut it out and placed it over the cupcake. It worked out well, except the candle flame stuck up over the cup... if I put the cup any higher it would cover his face too much. I tried making the candle flame into steam, but that did not work out too well... finally it came to me! And I couldn't be more pleased with how it came out... along with a little liquid glass I think it looks pretty good!
And his hat! He had a birthday hat on, but I grabbed my little Lawn Fawn Hats Off To You set and made his birthday hat out of the Santa hat and made it into a striped nightcap.
This is true.
