Mythical Gryphon Card

My latest Mythical Card!
Using Gryphon the new image released today over at Flowers, Feathers and Fairies :)
For more info visit the Flowers, Feathers and Fairies blog.


So I wanted him to look magical and mysterious with deep blue and green tones!
It was a challenge thats for sure and it didn't look right untill it was finnished, I suppose thats why Alyce(kit and clowder) always tells us to never stop half way.

Copics used:
Blues: B39, 37, 26, 34, 32, 00
Greens: G29, 28, 05, 02, 00
Gold: YR27, 23, Y21, 11
To get more definition in the feathers on his chest I use W9 for cast shadows and white gelpen for the center.

Distress inks used for the background piece: Peacock feathers, Broken China, Mustardseed and a very little bit of spiced marmelade.

I really hope you like my crazy colored gryphon! 

Wanda has also made a card with the gryphon:

Northern Lights Druscilla

Happy Sunday everyone!!
Hope you are all enjoying you weekend, I spend mine coloring and reading!

So today I have another Tiddly Inks card for you featuring the gorgeous Druscilla.
I colored her a nothern lights background which was a lot of fun to do!

It is always so easy to just color an image and leave the background white, 
I'm not saying there is something wrong with that cause I do it often myself. 
When you add the right papers and embelishments you can make beautifull cards that way.

Only I am always a little carefull with my embelishments, I love, love, love the super embelished cards!
But I am not great at making them myself.

So what I wanted to show today was an image that really didn't need much embelishing because I added a background. A background is such a fun way to transform a image into a scene and you can go so many ways.
I could have made her a forest scene and would have gotten a whole different look. So instead of spending a whole lot of time on the card I spend more time on the coloring.

 For the card I went with just one plain colored paper that matches the color tones in the image and gave her just a few white/silver embelishments and put some glitter on her wings.

Here a close-up from the sparkles they are always difficult to pick up on camera.

I used a pop-up card so I could enter this card in the new Tiddly Inks Challenge 
and the image is put on the card with 3D tape.

I'm entering this card in the Tiddly Inks Challenge #186...Make it Pop!!
Also using this as my second entry into the Tiddly Inks DT-call

Items used:

Image Druscilla by Tiddly Inks
White pop-up card
Light teal cardstock
Silver Ribbon

White pearls
and white gitter glue

Copics colors: Skin E04,11,21,00,00 / Hair E59,57,55,53 / Dress YG45,13,11
The background colors and technique come from a Create and Learn Class from Kit and Clowder

Hope this inspired you!
