Stamping for the weekend - Going Digital!

Ok Ladies and Gents - Today we have Challenge Number Two over at Stampin' for the Weekend, and this weeks challenge is all about 'Going Digital' -
Yup, you got it! Digital Stamps....
This weeks winner will have a choice of 2 or 3 Digi Stamps from Dustin Pikes fabulous collection, our sponsor for this week!! This man works hard creating these fantastic Digi Stamps so we can buy them and use them on our crafting projects. They are all reasonably priced and I am slowly collecting them! Also, Dustin kindly offers a weekly freebie on a Wednesday! So if you havent used a Digi Stamp, get along and download one, but beware, you will be hooked!

I am in love with his Doodle Dragon and that Monkey of his! They are soooo CUTE! SO what better image to use than one of those fun Dragons of his!

To get some inspiration, why not go an visit the Stampin' Teams Blogs and see what designs they have all come up with! Also, we have a guest designer this week - Sandie - Take a look at her lovely blog too, she has created a lovely card for this challenge. She's used some very pretty colours and a fabulous Digi Stamp too.

Here we have Doodle Dragon blowing Bubbles! I just loved this image! He is just tooo darn cute for words! I coloured him in using Copics and added the highlights with the Inkssentials pen!

I used some plain green card stock for the back ground and then the orange paper/card had a scaley effect which was perfect for this card. I had a play around with some wire again and came up with the twisty mess you see here! Mess, did I say Mess, I mean masterpiece!

I used a second download of Dustins and followed on with the Dragon on the inside of the card. I used copics again and highlighted him.

I used the Cuttlebug Nesties for the inside and some of the lush orangey card I found at a craft shop a while back. It looks yellow, but its an orangey yellow, which the camera has not picked up very well!

Well there you have it!

Thank you once again for taking part in Stampin for the Weekend ...

I didnt get round to leaving many comments last week and I feel so bad for not doing so as I have missed out on loads of brilliant cards my Team keep raving about! This week I will strive to do alot better as I am home now and no longer on holiday galivanting around!

Hi Kimmi,
I love this image, he's coloured perfectly. I was just wondering if a dragon could control his fire breath but then realized they're not actually real lol!
Sending you a big hug.
