Crafty Cardmakers challenge 66 - Fantasy

Evening Everyone.
Today sees the start of another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers, where our host Lin wants to see a  Fantasy theme to your projects. So dragons, fairies, witches, etc, anything Fantasy or mystical just please make sure that the fantasy element is the main focal point of your creation and not a small fairy charm in the corner for example.
Our two fab sponsors are, Crop Stop with a $15 gift certificate to their store and Di’s Digi Downloads with a $10 gift voucher for their store.
I didn't have any trouble choosing my stamps when it came to this challenge.
What else would I use but Wizard Tilda  and Lillyrose the Dragon
I didn't have a suitable background stamp so I made my own on the computer and printed it out. I added distress ink around the edges and stamped the Shooting Star Border into the corners with the same colour ink.
Tilda has been coloured using Distress ink and then placed over an oval panel cut out with a nestie. I added some glossy accents to her glasses.
I sponged a little colour onto the oval with the nestie still in place, and also added a few stamped stars.
The dragon was a little too large so I decided to shrink her so that it looked as if Tilda had done just that.
The only shrink plastic that I could find was frosted so I painted the back of the shrunk dragon with some white acrylic paint to make the colours a little more vibrant.
The main background to the card has been punched using the Woodware Crafty Edger and Star cassette (The other half of the panel from the Woodware 21st Birthday challenge card)
I have added a large punched star behind the Dragon and a liberal sprinkling of smaller stars around the card.
I hope that you will join us HERE and don't forget to check out what the rest of the team have come up with.
