Flutterings, foul or fearsome

Well Barb over on Haunted Design House wanted Foul Flutterings this week for HDH challenge #50. Well I don't know about foul ... because I like dragons ... but this lady would be definately fearsome. Nothing can be more fearsome or foul than a mother looking after her young under perceived threat. Auresha, from Tellen's Place Designs is blissfully unaware of her fate as she offers up a little snack for the draglets.
Using 4 different dragon stamps from Tanda stamps and a digi flower from Dew Drop Craftz as the additional images I put together this little project.
The orange paper that I'd printed the flower onto was layered onto textured orange cardstock (after a little roughing up round the edges). The mummy dragon coming out of the sun was stamped with green ink and heat embossed with both a red glittery powder and silver with other details water coloured. Auresha herself was coloured with promarkers, with just a touch of glossy accents on the eyes, horns and wings. The draglets were stamped in the same green ink as mum onto pearlised card and coloured the same. The reverse image was obtained by stamping onto acetate and rubbing the image onto the card with my ball tool.


  1. Hi Helen. I love the colours on this card, very striking and I love how you have done the background. Great image and loads of other detail to complete the look. Happy crafting.
    Love Sandra xxx

  2. Helen, you are so delightful with the tales of the dark side images - I love these incredible scenes you make with your cards. They are so interesting and fun - wonderful card. I love how you always put them together with other elements so well!

  3. I love the scene you've created with all of these images... but I REALLY love the story that goes along with it :) Thanks so much for playing along with Macabre Monday!
