Gavin the Green Dragon

Happy Monday Everyone,
Today's post is for three challenges this week:
Pals Paper Arts #82 Elements of Style - Add Scallops but no Scallop Edge Punch
Play Date Cafe Colour Challenge #70
Clean and Simple Sketch Challenge #129
After stamping and embossing my image I watercoloured it with re-inkers.  I find I get better definition with the re-inkers. I used the High Hopes Dragon feet stamp and stamped the background with Versamark and used my Stampin Pastels to give them a soft touch.  Punched out the 3/4" circles and applied them starting in the middle so the top and bottom circles looked more even, otherwise I would have had a tiny piece at the bottom of the card.  Scored a line on each side of the base to create more interest with my Fiskars Scoring Tool.
Stamps:  High Hopes - Gavin the Givin' Dragon, Dragon Footprints, S/U's On Your Birthday
Card: Gable Green, Pumpkin Pie, Cool Caribbean, Watercolour Card, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Gable Green, Pumpkin Pie, Cool Caribbean, Stampin Pastels
