Sketch Something with Dustin Pike

Morning all and happy Friday!

This has been a great week, our first real week of summer with sunshine every day! Hopefully it's here to stay! Hope you all have had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.

Today is a new challenge on Stamp Something and we have a fabulous new sponsor too, Dustin Pike! If you don't know Dustin's work, you need to check out his site. He creates the cutest images of monkeys and dragons and now he has a holiday collection. All of his images are digital and available for download, some for a small fee and others are free! Dustin has generously donated some fun blog candy as well as a bunch of images for the design team to create with!

Our challenge to you this week is a sketch. I've actually created this one and kept it pretty simple. And as you'll be able to tell, it was my first attempt, not the greatest, but it works! Feel free to flip it, turn it, and embellish it up! We're looking forward to seeing your sketched somethings!

For my card this week, I used this super cute Bubble Dragon image from Dustin's collection and colored him with Copics. I also highlighted with Copic glitter pens in gold and clear. It's hard to see some of the glittered areas, but you can see the gold ones. I also used some Off Beat BasicGrey papers that reminded me of bubbles in the various patterns.

The cardstock is SU! Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Baja Breeze. I embellished with SU! buttons and some grosgrain ribbons. I also paper pierced the edging around the image. One layer of Baja has been embossed with the bubbles folder and CB. I definitely have the bubbles theme going on in this one!

Thanks for popping by today! I'll see you all back here tomorrow for a fun event with Layers of Color stamps! Have a great day, happy stamping! :)
