Whimsy - Flower Dragon

Yay!  It's time for the Whimsy Stamps May release and it's bursting with cuteness (as usual!).  My card today features the new Dorky Dragon cling rubber stamp as well as the new Camouflage Background stamp.

I started the card by stamping the Camouflage Background onto the card base with Distress Oxide Twisted Citron. I thought it rather looked like the green of a field of flowers so I took the Speckled Heart Stencil and sponged it with Distress Oxide Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick to represent flowers.

I used the same colors to sponge a few flowers from the Build a Garden die set. I had some random yellow enamel dots in my stash that I used for the center of the flowers.  Love the added dimension and shine!

With the background done, I diecut the hill using one of the Wavy Edgers dies and a leftover from an alcohol ink experiment.

I then stamped the not-so-Dorky Dragon onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth using VersaFine Onyx Black. I watercolored him and the bee with Zig Real Brush Markers. 

The last step was diecutting a circle using one of the stacked Pierced and Stitched Circle Dies and stamping a sentiment from the Gnome Matter What set in VersaFine Onyx Black.  Adorable!  This card just makes me smile and I hope it does you too!
