Dragon Spinner Card - Distress Oxide Sunset

I am really excited to share this card today. I really love this one!


I used the Mama Elephant stamp set "Me and My Dragon" to stamp this cute little dragon. I thought that it looked like he was playing around in the air and that's how the whole idea for this spinner formed. So I stamped him in Versamark ink on Bristol Smooth paper and heat embossed in black. I then colored him in with my Arteza markers.


To create the sunset background I used Distress Oxide inks. Check out the video on my YouTube channel to get a walk-through on how this background was created, it is a little complex.


I cut out two circles in the background using my circle dies in order to turn this into a spinner card. The inner ring it glued to the base and the inner circle and outer part are popped up with two layers of foam tape.


I used a penny to create my spinning mechanism. With a small bit of foam tape the dragon is glued to the penny and it is able to spin around the track and do somersaults. It is such a fun card!
