I don't normally participate in the Casology Challenge, but I really liked their cue card this week. It also seemed to fit with my idea for the ShowCASe your style challenge. So I combined them and I'm going to enter them in both.
When I first saw the inspiration for ShowCASe Your Style, I immediately thought of my castle and dragon stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop. I'm a huge fan of fantasy movies, so that's just where my mind wanders!
This was a simple card to put together. I stamped the images and then colored them with copics and fussy cut them out. Then I created a watercolor card panel with some distress inks and trimmed it with my Stitched Rectangle dies. I die cut both cloud borders and then just added them to the panel. I heat embossed the sentiment "birthday fly by" and then simply stamped the second sentiment in black near the bottom. Easy peasy.
I also added some glossy accents to the horns and spikes on the dragon and the heart on the castle. For some shimmer, I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the dragon's belly and the flags on the castle. I tried to take a picture, but it's hard to capture it.
I'm also going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!
