I did think about turning this little dragon into a pendulum card — I’d seen a card by Jennifer McGuire and this digi seemed like a good candidate for the technique. I do like to try out different card styles every now and again, but when it came to colouring him, I changed my mind and created a simple background instead. Sometimes doing something different just for the sake of novelty would be a mistake and, in this case, I don’t think it would have ended up with me creating a better card.
After doing all the Copic colouring, I filled in some tiny details on the dragon and added some satin texture to the bauble with Triplus fineliners. These have the advantage of being Copic-safe, so they won’t bleed if I need to go back over something with a Copic marker.
The same can’t be said of any of the white gel pens, so those definitely have to be the very last thing used on any card; only when I’m sure it’s complete apart from the snow.
