Going Askew!

I just LOVE the Our Craft Lounge sets that Kate has at i {heart} papers! When our team was given the challenge to place our focal image askew, I thought of this fun dragon from the set, Drake the Dragon, and these fabulous, bright, fun papers!

I stamped Drake with Palette Noir ink, then colored him with prismas and gamsol in flaming yellows, oranges and reds to match this colorful My Mind's Eye funky floral/melon plaid paper. I really loved the side-by-side panels of Mojo Sketch #81, so I began there but added a single image askew, matting it with a scalloped nestabilities rectangle. I topped the image with a layered felt flower, a corded button, and then added some shimmery glimmer mint ribbon to the bottom edge to bring some balance to the layout and colors. I hope you like it! This card just screams summer to me! It gets HOT in Florida! ;)
