Dragon Train

Hello everybody - it has been horrible and wet all day today here. So much for me getting out into the garden and sorting my pots and borders! I did manage to plant some french bean seeds, sweet pea seeds and cactus seeds though. Doris must be really hating the wet as she came to look inside the house yesterday (after seeing if there was anything in the garden outside her pen worth eating). She didn't stay for long though before she hopped back into her run lol, daft bunny.

Anyway, I have done a general card depicting a train with a Dragon (Idris from Ivor the Engine, who looks very much like a lively Welsh Dragon).

 Here is a close-up of the Dragon:
Stamp: Idris from Ivor the Engine stamp set, stamped with black PrettyColour ink and coloured with Staeblo metallic pencils.
Dies - Intricut Train and Steam die set (I did not take all the pieces out from the train as I wanted it to have a black body). Cut using X-cut self adhesive black glitter and white textured papers.

I layered the die oer the image to ensure Idris was sitting on the chimney.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
CraftyCalendar - Mythical Creatures
MTTC #362Something New (The die was a present to myself in the hobbycraft January sale!)
AYLI - Favourite Die - The intricut dies are so easy to use, and this particular one is great for more masculine cards, whilst still allowing for a feminie touch.
Die-cuttin' Divas #352 Dragons
Cute Card Thursday #513 Something Fun
Sweet Stampin' - Men's card
CASology #283 Glimmer

I would also like to share an update for my Row of Xmas Fairies cross stitch:
This is just under 62 hours so far.

Thank you for looking, and please check back tomorrow for another blog post!
