Bringing a dragon to life

This awesome image form Aurora Wings - Woman w/ Serpentine Dragon Tattoo.
I actually did this image for my DT inspiration card for the ABC Challenge.  Then a couple of people started to post pictures of the same image they'd done and I didn't want to be accused of idea copying.  So I went back to the drawing board and did another image for the 1 April challenge.

I thought I'd make the card up and share it now seen as the current ABC Challenge is now closed.

I've done a CAS card to showcase this fantastic image.  I wanted to do it all in firey colours and did this with ProMarkers.  I've kept the girl quite flat and in the background and really gone to town colouring the dragon to make it stand out and the scales look like they have some depth.  Here's a close up.

I've also created the abstract back ground I showed in a step by step in a previous post.

Once coloured I've just used black card stock to frame the image and used some black self adhesive gems.
