"Coralyne and the Dragon" - Forever Dark DT project for Challenge #1

Howzit Friends!
Woohoo, the big day is here!  Our Forever Dark Challenges launch today!  Yeah Yeah!
 We have TWO fangtastic sponsors this month and we had the pleasure of creating with the digi images they provided us with!

Delicious Doodles Stamp

Everybody has a Dark Side and whether you indulge it daily or occasionally let it out to play, or you've never dared to go dark before but want to give it a try then Forever Dark welcomes you, just leave the cute at the door please ;0)  Our challenges are monthly and start on Tuesdays at 9am UK time so do stop by and check us out!  I and my fellow teamies look forward to seeing your dark and twisted creations!

 I've got two Forever Dark DT projects featuring digi stamps by both sponsors and I'll be sharing one today and the 2nd tomorrow.

Up first is a fantasy card I made using digi stamps by ArtiDoodles.
Celtic Dragon Frame and  Corvus Coralyne

  I made this aperture card by printing out the dragon on a sheet of white cardstock, folded it in half to form the card and cut out the center of the frame.  Coralyne was also printed and I cut out just the portion I wanted seen in the frame.  All the images were coloured with Copics and the backgrounds treated with Fired Brick and Black Soot Distress Inks.  The design on the Celtic frame, the dragon's spikes and claws and Coralyne's jewelry all have metallic silver detailing.  I used Cheery Lynne's Spiderweb die cut in black cardstock to decorate the two corners and the inside of the card.  Now for the magic part....stand the card open and put a flameless votive candle behind it and the whole card comes to life with a magical glow! 

The magical glow!

I hope I've inspired you to come and play with us and enter Forever Dark Challenge #1!
