Graphicat Challenge Card

I'm entering this card in the Graphicat Sketch Challenge. This is one of the cute little images that I won in a give-away...Thanks Tanya :)

I've used all SU! paper and sentiments, pencil crayons to colour plus Sakura pens, Stickles, Smooch paint, Happy Birthday embossing folder, and some crinkle ribbon. The off-set paper behind the Dragon has the masking tape technique---cover a piece of cardstock with small bits of masking tape, sponge on ink, coat with clear embossing powder, and heat. The tutorial is on SplitCoast Stampers under Faux Leather Technique.

Here's a view from the side to show there is a bit of dimension :)

And here is the Sketch for you.

Be sure to check out the Challenge blog for lots of great ideas and of course you can go to Cheri's store from there too :)


  1. Great card! I like how you embossed and destressed thoes small squares! And the Dragon is cute.


  2. Wow! That's a lot of detailed work for a card. I just rip, glue and stick. :) Very pretty! Have a great day. Tammy

  3. I thought I'd return the favor and check our YOUR card for the Graphicat Challenge. Cute and playful! I'm still kicking myself for not matting those little squares on MY card. I think a light box makes all the difference in how the cards show on line. My DH was going to make one and then he found one on Ebay that actually cost less than the lights he was going to put around a cardboard box painted white inside... about $30, I think.

  4. Wow lovely card like the masking tape idea will have to give it a try.. Take Care

  5. Love this! Great take on the sketch. The embossing is awesome. Glad you could join us at Graphicat Sketches this week.
