Have a Magical Day

Here's my card for the current (for a few more hours) sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch.  I just got the Magical Day stamp and die set from Taylored Expressions and couldn't wait to try it out, so I used the sketch to make a simple scene for one of the set's dragon image.

Have a Magical Day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Taylored Expressions
I colored the dragon image with Copic markers, then cut it out with the matching die.  Nothing says magic like a little sparkle, so I coated the colored image with a bit of clear glitter from a glitter brush marker.  After placing a shimmery white cloud strip along the bottom of an aqua cardstock panel, I placed the dragon on top, using foam tape for dimension.  I arranged a few pink sequins around the image to fill in the empty space on the panel.  The "have a magical day" sentiment was stamped at the bottom of the panel in black ink.  I layered the panel on to pink and green mats to match the dragon, then adhered the panel to a pink card base to finish the design.

Materials Used:
Magical Day stamp and die combo (Taylored Expressions); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Aqua Mist, Limeade Ice, and Sweet Blush cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Shimmery White cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Landscape Trio dies (Mama Elephant); pink sequins; foam tape
