Hatched - It is time for another great challenge at One Stop Craft Challenge. Our challenge this week is... for a child! I thought this would be an easy challenge, but it took a little more thinking on my; as I wanted to make it for a male child. Everyone knows how hard those pesky male cards can be!

My DP are MME kaleidoscopic  I have 2 blocks of this pad and I have used and used it, but still have lots more paper!!! I think it is perfect for young males, with it's vibrant colors.

The blue and gold sparkly things are brads that were dipped in UTEE, then in glass glitter. I really like how sparkly they are.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Dustin Pike. This sweet little dragon is one of his images. I colored the image with Copic's. I also tried something new with this image. I added charcoal and smudged it to deepened the shadows. I tried spraying a clear sealer on it, but my colors ran and I had to color another image. Ouch!!! That hurt!! So this is actually my second go at coloring it! I do like the charcoal on it and I will diffidently be adding it to more of my projects.

This image reminded my DIL of this sweet little baby bird that had left the nest and been unable to fly. They had chased  away a cat that was circling and had become rather fond of watching it pratice flying. Two days later they noticed the family dog chewing on something and were horrified to realize it was the baby bird. My DIL still gets mad at the dog and this image made her think of that. I told her the dragon was just helping the bird hatch and I am sure that as there is no fire, that the dragon means no harm to the bird.

My sentiment is Hot Off the Press.
