SugarPea Designs Sweet Sneaks - Blow Me Away!


I hope you're ready to be blown away by this month's release at SugarPea Designs - believe me when I say, it's the best yet!

Today the SugarPeas and our fabulous guests Tara and Dana are getting inky with Blow Me Away...the cutest baby dragon you've ever seen!


Isn't he the sweetest?! The awesome thing about this set is it comes with multiple images for the dragon to hold...and matching punny sentiments of course! Just wait till you see what the other girls did with him!

The pinwheel was trimmed out and attached with a tiny brad so it really spins!

I coloured my dragon with copics, then gave him some texture using blending solution.


After the portions of my dragon that I wanted to give extra texture were coloured, I embossed some cardstock with this crocodile skin/bubbly embossing folder.


I dripped some blending solution refill onto the cardstock and pressed it onto my dragon for half a second - voila! Gorgeous texture!

Here's a peek inside my card...
