dragons

Another find among my stamps - this set  was used a lot when it first came out, then got forgotten.
It is a testament ot the quality of CB stamps that I had to scrub the dragons with a nail brush and stamp cleaner to try to remove remnants of a 3D glittery paste , and they still stamped beautifully afterwards (also had to renew the cling backing, which also had glittery bits on it)
This would be a fairly quick card if you stamped the dragons onto a white bit of the background.
I did it the hard way by stamping and masking the dragons before brushing distress inks over the 6" sq white card blank, then colouring the dragons with marker pens.

This April is Chocolate Baroque's 5th birthday, and there will be lots of offers coming up, so keep an eye out - you don't want to miss anything!
have fun, and don't forget to look at the older stamps while you're on line, just the one you've been looking for could have been there all the time.......
