Kitchen Knight

Hello again, it's me... I'm back

Here's another card made with a digi image from Mo Manning. It's called Kitchen Knight and you can find him here

I decided to colour him in in blues and reds and I just love that sleepy ol' dragon.

I mounted the image onto two colours of blue and added some thin ribbons down the left and along the bottom of the image. I then ran a strip of the same blue card through the BigShot with a Cuttlebug embossing folder to achieve the raised 'dots' effect and stuck that to one side of the 8x8 card blank.

Next I coloured the image using my ProMarker pens and my Derwent Watercolour pencils and some Sandodor to blend it all together.  I love the way the colinder 'helmet' and the saucepan 'shield' came out. It really looks good in the flesh!

I wish I could get the photographs to be a true depiction of the colours I have used as these look a little muted by comparison.

Anyway, it makes a nice change to make a card for a child.  I think I might have to make a male card next. I haven't done one of those for a while and I hate doing them unless I am specifically asked to make one, so I think my January CHALLENGE to myself would be to make a male birthday card.

In fact, during most of my blogs visits lately, I have noticed that almost ALL of the cards have been girlie and rarely anything for male birthdays.  I think others should be making a few male cards aswell.

I hope that you like my card and thanks once more, for stopping by.

Hugs xx
