Dragons-SDD Challenge

Good morning crafters and followers.  Friday is here and I love it as my weekend officially starts.  I don't work Friday's.  Shopping this morning first thing and then some crafting me thinks. 

Saturday is NEC day with major retail crafting therapy and a wonderful day with my friend Wendy.  Lots of catching up, lots of coffee stops, loads of shopping and lots of mooching.  Absolute heaven.

Well my post today is my DT entry for the latest challenge over at Stamping with the Dragon.

Backing Papers - Gentle Waves
Copics used were - G21|G28|G29|YG03 = Penny

Well it's a square card for this challenge.  I started with a plain white 6x6 card, matted some red card followed by my backing paper - Gentle Waves which I embossed with the sea garden embossing folder and then distressed around the edges with distress ink - tea dye.

I coloured my digi stamp, Penny's Apples, using my copics and die cut her out using spellbinders labels 23 which I distressed whilst in the die using shabby shutters.

Using another of the backing papers from Gentle Waves I die cut my leaves, distress inked with shabby shutters and then sprayed them with silver sparkle spray.
