MTTC #506 Theme of Fantasy starting 21 April 2023

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog!

WHAT: MTTC's #506 design team inspiration card

WHY: I've been managing the challenge blog for over a year and also serve as a design team member; #506 theme is fantasy

WHEN: April 21-May 4, 2023

Show the DT card: Puff the Magic Dragon's cousin!!! card (joking!)

Introducing my named dragon as Droopy Dobson Dragon:


1. dragon image was a free image from the Clipart Library website

2. leaves, tab, leafy branches stickers = Webster Pages 2009

3. the creamy cardstock is actually pink that's been 'bleached' by the printer scanner light; green cardstock = stash

4. some gems were placed under the pink cardstock panel before adhering in order to use a white colored pencil and a gray colored pencil for an embossed "smoke" cloud kind of look

5. a lot of colored pencil hues were layered for adding color to the dragon

6. alpha tile stickers for 'hey' = Freckled Fawn

A Barrel of Monkeys challenge blog; started April 15; Theme Image Prompt is Pop-Its, a fidget item coming in hundreds of shapes; MY card has textured embossed circles (made with gems under the cardstock) to look like smoke coming out of the fire-breathing dragon!!! To me, he looks too droopy-eyed, sleepy but who knows what a dragon is actually capable of doing!!!???!!!

    1. Thank you, Diane!!! As soon as I decided to use this dragon, the idea of incorporating the pop-its, popped into my head!

  3. He's a fun Dragon! He reminds me of my childhood Mama used to say when God was handing out doggie brains, Coco was off chasing butterflies! Lovely card Becca, Thanks for sharing your card with us at The Paper Funday Challenge.
