Driving Dragon?!

'Driving Dragon' by Neil Burley

It's still 'anything goes' month here at the Crafting Cafe sponsored by the fabulous Stamping Dragon Designs - I've chosen the Rupert's Car digistamp for my card.

Since my ProMarkers are currently on loan to my young tutee, I've used my Fashion Design set of Tria Markers to colour in the digistamp. This has the benefit of a preselected palette of colours that work well together. I've added extra colour-on-colour to add the tartan stripes to the hat and the shading. I felt Rupert really needed scarf and goggles, but only the scarf made it :)

For the background I cut out a 4x4" square city map from an old road atlas, coated it twice with Picket Fence Distress Stain to lighten it before adding distress inks in red and brown round the edge - I can't tell you what colours exactly as they are what was left on the applicator foams from previous projects! The sentiment is from Tim Holtz/Stamper's Anonymous Simple Sayings set, stamped in Versacolor Burgundy. Everything is mounted on distressed Foundations Card - Milk from Creative Expressions.

This is such a versatile image - I look forward to finding more uses for it in the future :)
