Surf's Up


 Surf's Up - Cowabunga Dude!!!!! I asked my 7 year old grandson which image to ask for to use for this challenge and he picked this surfing dragon. He is a really cool guy (like my grandson.)

The fortnight's sketch for Seems a Little Sketchy is a really easy one to use and for once, I didn't turn it!

Here is Jenn's lovely sketch. She does an amazing job making all of our sketches.


My image is by Stamping Dragon, who is our sponsor for this challenge. I colored it with Copic's then added some mud puddles that has been in my stash for 3 years and only been used one time prior to this. Which is too bad, because it really is a fun product to use. I also used some Judykins Diamond glaze on his googles.

I had a lot of fun creating spots on the dragon. It is so fun to do using colorless blender.


Hope you will come and play with us at Seems a Little Sketchy!

  4. Great card! I like the combination of colors you used! I like how you used your colorless blender too! Great idea for using glossy accents for the goggles and the mud was a real plus! That's what I wanted to use but didn't have any so had to improvise. Well done!
