Stampin for the Weekend Challenge: DigiStamp

Here is the card I have made for this weeks challenge over at
Stampin for the Weekend.

The theme is to use a digistamp on your project.
I have used one of Dustin Pikes images:) I think he does some really
nice images that can be used on male cards .

I have made this card for my husbands birthday comeing up :)
He is into dragons ,so thought this image was perfect:),
but he isnt into embellishments and stuff like
that so I have not added any to this card .

Items used:
White, and limegreen cardstock
Papers by DCWV
Ribbon from stash
Glitter glue

Digi-stamp by:
Dustin Pike

I coloured the dragon in useing Whisper Strokes markers and blender pen.
I outlined the whole image in a Sakura Black Glaze Pen
to give it more of a 3-d effect.
Went around the egde of the image with Sakura Black Stardust
pen for a faux stitch effect.
Added clear glitter glue to the yellow bits on the
dragon for a bit of sparkle :)

Thank you for looking :)

Great card Cheryl......he is a cute dragon, in fact two of our Dt used the same image, Dustin's dragons are certainly popular. You've done a marvelous job on coloring him, and the faux stitching always adds a special touch to a card I feel.
Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge. Good luck and we hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a fabulous weekend.

How great is this card! I love the red for this little dragon I have alway done him in green and I have no idea why he looks so great in red :) Love the layout and the way you have used the sakura pens to do stitching round the edge.
