Just hatched

The Less is More Challenge this week is about St. George, so about heroes, dragons and or Saints.

This is my second entry, usually I restrict myself to one ;-) BUT I just got this super duper cute stampset from Clearly Besotted (hot stuff) and I just had to play with it, I had to! lol

I stamped him on a piece of Schut hotpressed and smooth watercolor paper  (300grms) with StazOn and used Distress inks for my watercoloring (mermaid lagoon, twisted citron, wilted violet, antigue linen and ground espresso).
I then covered the image with Distress glaze as I found my fixative spray and StazOn don't like each other...
The sentiment is also from that set and also StazOn.
Three glossy accent "dew"drops for  no other reason but to connect the image to the sentiment and viceversa.
Mounted the panel with foamtape to the cardbase.

I made the dragon blue as I was picturing a baby boy card, and as I believe dragons can be any color I will go make a pink/lilac one next ;-)
