Happy Easter Dragon

I absolutely hate how many cute Easter images are out there. I've made all my Easter cards for this year and have a very good start on next year's too! And even so, I had to make another one with this fabulous image from Dustin Pike's Doodle Dragon Studio.

I tried something new by colouring the image using Photoshop instead of using my Copics or pencil crayons. I'm not sure how I feel about the result - it is much smoother/more consistent, but doesn't have the same home-made feel to it. I did love how easy it was to match colours though! After scanning in the patterned paper, I was able to easily pick up the colours and move them onto my project.
