Apparently Lambent was the first of these small dragons that Eva Horne created. I find it very interesting that it was also the first one I stitched.
Each dragon has a name associated with Light or Dark, which is where the name of the set comes from, Light and Shadow. Lambent means: Glowing, gleaming, or flickering with a soft radiance. The sample had it with a light yellow that got a little bit darker. The thread I chose, Golden Star by Crescent Colors, is a bright yellow that goes orange.
Time for the pictures.

I knew this wouldn't take long, and he took less than two days. I do like the color I picked for him, I think it looks better than the sample, but I'm biased.
Out of the remaining three I think I might be doing Stygian next, the upper left piece. I think I have a piece of fabric that will look good with him. But Nocturne will definitely be the next signet I work on. I just have to wait for it to arrive.
