Dream Big...

Hi there!

 I'm back on the Bellarific Blog with another Scenic Saturday card to share. I don't know about all of you but lately I've been struggling a bit with cabin fever and just wanting to escape from all of the horrible news that comes with the scary situation we are currently living through. So my responsible way of running away from it all has been through revisiting some of my favorite fantasy movies while I'm stuck at home. There is nothing like a good adventure story full of brave knights, elves, wizards and most especially... dragons! So when it came time to create I decided to continue my fantastical escape with this super cute Set of Dragons. They are too sweet to be scary so I wanted to have them living in a castle amongst the clouds and knowing that going in I made sure to wipe away the ink from their feet and bottoms before stamping to really create the illusion that they are bursting through or sitting in those soft fluffy clouds. This technique also works great for characters you want to color into snow drifts or long grasses etc. I kept the clouds light and pastel so that each of the dragons would pop like little jewels against them.    

I hope you all will try creating your own stamping stories and let yourselves get lost in them for awhile. :)
