Today I am sharing a card which required some research, I was asked to make a card for an 8 year old girl who loves a character called ‘Toothless’ now I’m not really into going out to the movies and had no idea who or what ‘Toothless’ was, a little search in Google I found out it was a little dragon from the How to Train your Dragon films, problem now was to find an image or something which I could use I came across a site called Deviant Art where there is a couple of black and white images available, another Google search for handmade cards ‘Toothless’ and a very talented lady Gill Prescott’s blog page with a great punch art card with ‘Toothless’ the dragon on it.
Gill has used a variety of Stampin’ Up punches to create her ‘Toothless’ as I have so far resisted Stampin’ Up products so far, (I do have some on my wishlist) I went through my dies and Gill’s list and selected the best fit using my stash.
I initially inked the edges of the pieces that would lay over the top of others but decided once finished that the dragon required a little more definition and used my white pen to add a fine line around all the black pieces...
Here is my card:-
