Magical Dragon - MFT Sketch challenge

I can finally enter the MFT sketch challenge as I now have two sets of MFT stamps.  I have a few of the older dies but finally got some stamps.  I stamped and coloured a few of the dragons from the Magical Dragon set and cut them with my ScanNCut.  This weeks sketch looked such fun I had to use one of them

 I started by embossing my panel with a folder and used a Tim Holtz diffuser so I kept the centre circle free of the embossing.  Next I sponged on some green ink (Catherine Pooler Grass Skirt)  I die cut some green PP with two circle dies (one Spellbinders and one Simon Says Stamp)  I added some splatters of Gold Spectrum Noir glitter pen  for some added texture.  My little dragon is sitting on the sentiment strip.   Finished with some green sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. 

 I'm off for a mini break over the next 5 days.... I'm off work till Wednesday 31st, then again from after work Friday next week till Wednesday 7th.  There is a public holiday on Monday  29th so I've taken a days leave each side and then there is another public holiday on Tues 6th so I've taken the Monday on leave.... I like these mini breaks.  And then on Friday 23rd Feb, it's another day off for a Mystery Weekend away.   We have to be at the airport at 2.00 and only then will be find out where we are going in NZ.  Two nights away - flights, accommodation and car hire inclusive.  It was a gift from a company my husband has had dealing with over the years, as a farewell when he finished working.   A really nice treat that I'm looking forward to.  

Hope you all have a great crafty weekend.  Hoping to get some more colouring done while I'm at the beach.    Thanks for stopping by
