Dustin Pike Dragon and Cutting Cafe word bubble

A very simple and plain little card for you today, I made it with a boy in mind, so no flowers and bling on this. Regina Easter has come up with another great idea, a download with a series of word bubbles
I used this one to make it look as if the dragon was blowing the words out. Go to the Cutting Cafe to see the download and some DT samples

The image is a Dustin Pike, this weekend he has a sale and is selling all the images he has ever produced for $25 (just under £17) - needless to say I am now £17 poorer but I do like his stuff, especially the dragons, great for boys/men cards, hurry though the sale ends tonight


The image was coloured with copic markers and all the bubbles were given a coat of glossy accents. The three brads are card candy from Craftwork Cards (not brads at all, domed shapes of cardstock that you stick on with silicone glue, I love them as you get huge bags for £1 and in every colour under the sun, which would cost a fortune if they were conventional brads)

I'm $25 poorer as well. I love what you did with the dragon and the bubble. Creative devil you.
What program do you use to print and resize your images? I can't seem to find one that works well for me.

This dragon is so cute and definately perfect for a boys card.

This reminds me of yesterday when I was at my friends house for her sons 2nd birthday and we were blowing bubbles for him, he just loved them.

Cheers
