Dragons Lair Fan Group June Challenge - Day 181 of A Year of ATCs?


each month you will find a post announcing the Monthly Fan Group Challenge!

Request the image...in June it was this:

No automatic alt text available.

Make something using this and add it to the album...

 I printed the image ATC sized and coloured it with Zig real brush pens.
I then used Tonic ATC Collection dies and a variety of scraps of card to form my background.


I then added a tree sticker and a wooden fairy embellishment. She was a little large so sticks out from my 2.5 by 3.5 inches base - but I didn't want to hide too much background!!


This is my 181st make for A Year of ATCs?



Happy Crafting!




Why not visit some of the other areas in the Dragons Lair Designs family of sites?

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #248


Here's my card for the Holiday Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More



I started with a red card blank and then added rectangles of green and white to form layers as shown. I used the white cards to 'triple stamp' the holly leaves and coloured them with a Zig real brush pen. The holly stamp and sentiment are from Happy Little Stampers.
I finally added gems for the holly berries.



Hope you will enter the Challenge!
