Got to call me Elliot!!


Well this week has been World Book Week, but I'm sure you already knew that.   You've probably been frantic all week about that costume you have to make or buy for the 1 day of the year every child wants to dress up!!!

Josephine is going as that clock from Beauty and the Beast, Cogsworth is it?  So Daddy has been making her costume all week out of cardboard and my dining table now looks like a clock with all the new paint work!! gasp!!  Ben is going as Harry Potter (his was easy, costume shop and a shed load of money).

Ben however, has had relevant homework too! Write about your favourite book and draw a picture.  Ben's favourite book is Pete's Dragon.  'Mummy, get your stamps out!'  I obliged, I created and we decided the teacher would know for deffinate that he didn't do it!!!!

So, we made a card instead!!

This little cutie is called Dragon Party and is from the Crissy Armstrong Collection at Whimsy Stamps, (UK Crafters, you can get these from Dies to Die For).

 This is as close to Elliot as we could get, granted the party hat and maybe the balloons shouldn't be there but hec, this is for kids afterall!!

So, copics used:

Dragon Green: G28, YG67, YG45, YG23, YG11, C7
Dragon Purple: BV08, BV17, BV13
Balloons: YR07, YR16, Y38
Background: B93, B41, B21, B00, B000

I could't make up my mind if this was for a little boy or a girl, but figured flowers would be nice anyway.  These are Petal Lu Flowers.

 As you can see, I matched the inside of the card to the outside.

I hope you like what I have created.
