Baby dragons

The theme for the current challenge at Aurora Wings is 'Metallics'. I enjoy playing along with these challenges, mainly because I love colouring the fabulous images! Here's my entry for this fortnight. My first thought was 'Steampunk' but then I remembered these cute Dragon babies and thought that gold was the perfect colour for a dragon's egg. So I coloured the dragons with copics, glitter pens and perfect pearls for shimmer on the blue/green. one, then paper pieced the egg shells with gold paper. 

 I used the same gold paper to make the background, cutting it into sections and embossing each panel. I use a lovely piece of teal coloured metallic cardstock to make the frames and die cut swirl. Sentiment is stamped and embossed with gold EP. M y photography has let me down again ...IRL this has much better metallic sheen! I've made so many Christmas cards lately so this made a very pleasant change!
Thanks for visiting!
It's snowing!!!
