Creative Cowgirls Challenge #9 - Monochrome

Is it really Challenge #9 over at Creative Cowgirls?  

Yes it is I hear you say, so without further ado here is my 'not sure what to call it', I have made the base but can't decide whether to attach it to a card or make it into a doorplate/hanger for one of my Daughter's friends who likes dragons.  My Daughter chose the colour orange to be the colour I used for this Monochrome Challenge.  I coloured in the image using Copics and Promarkers and the background was made using Dovecraft chalks.  The various orange paper/card was from stash and edged with a Sakura calligraphy pen.  Bottom cut using a MS punch.
This cute little Dragon is one of Teri's gorgeous images, which you can find at Delicious Doodles.  Teri has a fantastic mix of images in her shop from simple images like mine to pencil shaded images (sorry I don't know how else to describe them) these are images which you can use on their own or highlight with colour.  She also does a range of fantasy images including dragons, fairies, skulls etc.  Whichever ones you chose, I guarantee they will be beautiful and you will really enjoy using them.  If you need any inspiration Teri and her DT do some awesome work (so do our Posse :-)) so hop over and take a look and maybe enter the Delicious Doodle Challenge Teri runs.  

You should also hop over and take a look at the fabulous projects our fantastic Posse has made and enter the Creative Cowgirls Challenge while you are there.
