Male Dragon Shaker Card


Here is a Male Dragon Shaker card.
I used my Tim Holtz distressing paint on the frame, left it overnight to leave it to crack and dry properly.
I then used coredinations behind the image inside the frame, a dragon image as my focal point, then added a collection of sequins in greens and gold to match the colours in the card.
I stuck acetate onto the reverse of the frame, then used foam pads to make a secure barrier so the sequins would'nt fall out. I then stuck the frame to the coredinations background and then to the card.
I used a patterned paper on the bottom half of the card and a green and yellow ribbon to tie it all in, with a gold embellishment in the corner.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
Fairymoon Crafts Challenge 32 Following the sketch,
Cards for Men Male Birthday
