Dewey Dragon Autumn Bookmark

Little Dewey Dragon  DT-018-E  looks so scholarly peering out over his spectacles.  He makes a perfect character for a Third Coast bookmark, especially with a name like Dewey.

An autumn still life was created on the bookmark tag by adding the Third Coast Coffee Pot Bouquet MY-038-J stamp and coloring it to look like a fall dried flower bouquet.

The background on the vanilla precut tag was sponged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and Stampin' Up's Sahara Sand and Soft Suede dye inks.  Both of the main images were stamped in Soft Suede ink, then colored with Copic earth and gray toned markers .

 Dewey was stamped and colored first, then masked to stamp the bouquet behind him.  The swirls, also stamped in Soft Suede, then shadowed with a Sahara Sand Stampin' Up marker, are from Stampin' Up's Priceless stamp set.  The bottom of the tag was colored with Earth toned Copics.  White and gold gel pens were used for accents, along with paprika, gunmetal, and brown Stickles.  Two layers of flowers and a decorative brad were added to the upper left corner.  Earth toned fibers were tied at the top for a finishing touch.

Hope your having a great November.
Thanks for looking.
