Having Fun with My New Stamps...WoJ

I got a bunch of Whiff of Joy stamps from the Medieval Collection and have not had a chance to play much with them, so I thought I would give it a shot....

This guy is SOOOO CUTE! I just love the sweet little expression on his face. I used DCWV Charcoal 12x12 CS, SU Brilliant Blue CS, and some textured olive CS from my stash.

The dragon is stamped in Versafine Ink, on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and colored with Copic markers in the YG, Y, and C ranges.

The sentiment is one I came up with on my own, I thought it worked well with this image. For those of you that don't "get" my humor, it is like "Been draggin'?" As in, feeling down or weak and weary. I printed it out on SU Whisper White CS using a Celtic font.

I was trying to find a way to work this image into a card that was spiritually related, so I chose Habakkuk 3:18-19 to go with it. Let me know what you think! I appreciate your comments.
Blessings!

I loved the way you incorporated scripture into this card. The dragon coloring is beautiful. Thanks for showing how you can take a stamp seemingly for a kid and make it fit an adult. ms.cheryl

He looks great and I totally understood your humor.

The verse fits well.

Word: ingst -- pretty fitting since we are talking about dragons.

Hi Shannon
I think he is a student studying at the moment, it was a commissioned card so not 100% sure. Anways love the not so fierce looking dragon and good to catch up with you.
