Today is High Hopes Stamps challenge day and BIRTHDAY! Be sure to read the wonderful details of the prizes for this week's challenge below! Today's challenge is a sketch challenge. I'm kinda getting used to playing with sketches and today's was a simple one to follow for me. I have a TON of birthdays in the month of October. Jay's, my Mom's, my sister's, my best friend's, and my aunt's. So birthday cards are on my mind right now. I thought this would be a perfect time to knock one off the list.
Here is the sketch:
Here is my card:
As you can see, I flipped the sketch to accommodate the horizontal image. I love this sweet dragon! This image is called "Warm Wishes". I used a couple of coloring techniques on this image. The dragon is completely colored with distress ink - Crushed Olive. I used my Aqua Painter to color him. The cake is colored with my colored pencils and oms. I was very disappointed in the quality of the photo, because of the "dragon scales" panels and how they photographed. That is not exactly the color. The reason it looks shiny is because it is shiny LOL. I took green card stock, ran it through my CB with an embossing folder (this one always reminds me of reptilian skin, and then I painted it with Yasutomo Shimmer Paints. This is a wonderful product, and boy does it add shimmer! That is why it was so hard to get a good shot because it is so shiny.
Anyway, there you have it! NOW HERE IS THE EXCITING PART. . .It is High Hopes BIRTHDAY!!! They are giving away a GREAT PRIZE this week! One winner will win 10 STAMPS and 2 people will win 5 STAMPS!
