Inspiration by Gwyneth - August

Good Morning Everybody!
Hi everybody.  Thank you for popping over to have a look at the crafting inspiration that's on show on The Dragons Den blog.  Today I've gone for a card with a bit of paper piecing on it.

3 x 300gsm, Super Smooth white cardstock; 8" square base card; ProMarkers - Prussian
FlexMarker - Blue Grey 3; Wink of Stella Brush Pens - Gold, Purple; Glue Gel; Topsy Turvy blue card; White Gel Pen
Scissors; Corner Punches

A closer look at the Paper Pieced digi stamp.

For this card I printed out some items from the CD-ROM to use as background elements, cutting a strip of one and putting it across the centre as a paper ribbon.  I went over the edges of this paper ribbon and the shaped panel with a ProMarker to make it stand out.  I also punshed two corner paper punches on the background and the blue Topsy Turvy mat to create interlocking corners.  I printed the dragons digi-stamp out three times, once onto plain cardstock, twice more onto paper already printed with two of the blue backgrounds from the blue harmony kit.  I think that these give a bit of a texture to the two dragons, especially Uncle Perry.  I cut out all of these, making the two blues paper piecing pieces for the two dragons.  I used the blue ProMarker to colour some parts of Uncle Perry and the Blue Grey FlexMarker to put in shading around the lines of both the dragons.  The Wink of Stella pens were used to colour in the parsel and the white gel pen to do Uncle Perry's eyes and teeth.  I shaped these and used glue gel to attached the pieces image to the card front.

And that is it from me for today.
Please keep coming back regularly to look at new posts as over the next few weeks you'll find various "Inspiration by ..." posts appear on this "Dragons Den" blog, as well as colouring tutorials and other posts by different Design Team members.  I'll be back with more posts over the coming months as well, so keep an eye out for those.
