Easter Dragon

I decided to join Split Coast Stampers Sketch Challenge this week (see below for actual sketch), I also decided to use this Easter Dragon image I got free from Dustin Pike. Be sure to check out his blog...he's got lots of cute freebies on there! Now I've never actually SEEN an Easter dragon (and maybe the Easter Bunny was his snack...) BUT, this is a really cute image... I colored him in with my Copics and sponged on a blue sky. The dragon and chick have been layered, I then added some swirls and some eggs that I wrapped in string...I didn't want this to be too girly (but then again...it might already be too late! LOL) I put this all on some Chick paper I bought at least a year ago, because I thought it was "cute"...LOL...so I used up my stash... see below for a close up of the eggs and the dragon, the sketch and the recipe. Thanks for looking!

  • Stamp: Digital Image by Dustin Pike, Paper Trey Ink Limitless Labels
  • Ink: SU Heavenly Blue, Tim Holtz Black Soot

You beat me to it! I am literally in the middle of putting together the exact same card!!! I colored the Dustin Pike over the weekend and it's been sitting there looking at me and then when I saw the sketch today I knew just what to do with it! Ahhhh, great minds think alike!!!! Aren't his images so great!!

That is SO cute! I thought about trying that sketch but I'm so straight on. I really should try it. So do you just print on cs? I haven't used the digital images because I don't have cs at work!
