Dragon Tales

It's not only a great new set release from Smeared Ink, Dragon Love, it's also the theme of the challenge over at Smudgy Antics this week.
The other DT members have some great examples to show you of the other images but this is the one I chose to use this time.....Skull Keeper.
I altered a CD tub. The top that normally sits on top of the spindle to keep the blank CDs safe, turned upside down.
The paper used is from Susan's Crafty Chaos. Still waiting for her to rejoin the crafting community, I do miss her work.
I cut various sized circles, well my cricut did the hard work ;) and tiered them up. There is a circle under the big one that fits in the case to stop the lid sliding off. One of my skull beads and a couple of small spacers to form a knob. I needed some where to store my collection of skull beads after all.

Skull Keeper itself was coloured with pencils and blended with baby oil.The skulls it's protecting were coloured with promarkers. A graphite pencil used to form a back ground.
The wings were layered up so that they stood proud of the container and looked more "wing like".

Go look at the other examples created with the talent of the other DT members and come back and share your Dragon Tales. Please.

  5. Genius idea - I love what you did with this. I have some CD cases I keep and kept thinking that one day I will do something with them. This is a gorgeous creation. I must try the pencil/baby oil combo. Does it work really easily ? I just got some new watercolour pencils so might give it a try if I know how to do it :-D
