Lorraine, this is indeed magical! What a striking image and an equally striking color palette to go along with it! The image is done to perfection and your embellishing is lovely. The touch of gold, reptilian paper, and decorative edge all pair so beautifully with it. Inspiring work, my friend. I have just finished looking through what I've missed.. you have been whipping up masterpiece after masterpiece! Stunning creations! I apologize that I can only leave this one, but I have not been feeling well and am so far behind everywhere... I am sorry. I hope to be back up to speed soon. Please know that I enjoyed everything you made in the last several days and have been inspired as always. :o)

Hugs and blessings,
Karen

Erika said...

Wow Lorraine that is a fabulous mythical image and beautifully coloured. I love how you've made the background too, the textured paper like skin and the edging like a dragons scales, very clever.

Hugs Erika. x
