Superhero Dragon

Hello, hello! Are you ready for the final stage of Anna’s CASometry Challenge 2: Make five? This secret stage comes with a twist – that is to case a card from this Pinterest board!


As with my previous entries (you will find them down below), I am using Hot Stuff as the focal point of my card. I first stamped the dragon on a piece of watercoloured card stock and went on to mask off the area with some post-its. To create the background, I simply watercoloured the negative die-cut of Skyline Border three times with Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. I also outlined the borders with Hickory Smoke, leaving a gap in between to accentuate the skyline. Once that was done, I drew on an eye mask and coloured in the dragon with Dusty Concord, Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass. My husband thought the dragon resembled Ninja Turtle. LOL.


I die-cut the finished piece with a stitched rectangle die and adhered it onto a dark blue card base. The sentiment from the Prayers set was heat embossed in white detail powder on the same card stock, and die-cut again with a smaller stitched rectangle die. I thought the rectangle was slightly too tall, so I repositioned the die after the first cut and ran it through my Big Shot again to make it shorter. I do this all the time and love that I get so much more value out of my craft supplies!

This card is inspired by the card below by Ruby.


There you have it. Make five with one stamp set – mission accomplished! So glad I decided to take up this challenge as it pushes me to think out of the box. Definitely making this my rule-of-thumb the next time I put anything in my shopping cart!

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!

Hugs, Michelle
