Supplies used: Dustin Pike Digi Images, SU Cheers to You. Copics, Crystal Effects, MS Crab punch, mini pom poms, Liquid Applique, Cuttlebug EF. Taken with Teal, Black, White, Red CS.Oh Julia!!! This one's for you!! Yes, it only took me 3 weeks but I finally finished up my DDC that Julia (aka Create With Me) hosted way back when. She pointed us to these adorable F-R-E-E Dustin Pike images and we were to make a card with the Pirate Dragon and the background. I got him all colored up and then did lots of fussy cutting. Which brings me to my tip... I almost always take a black marker and draw around all the cut edges of an image that I've fussy cut. It's a very subtle detail, but I like how it kind of almost looks like you cut everything out perfectly that way, no white borders where you don't want them. Plus it makes the coloring pop a little more. IMO... :) And, on with the card.. Next it just seemed to me that this guy was a happy go lucky sort of fella, one party animal. Really. So I pulled out my SU Cheers to You set and made him a beer mug. I added some beer foam (Liquid Applique), a little extra dripping down the side cause it's sort of sloshy on that big ship and used Crystal Effects where the glass of the mug would be. I then cut away his sword and replaced it with the mug!! Then, I decided a party animal needs a party hat. Ya?? So I stamped a little hat from one of my $1.00 clear stamps from Michael's and added some mini pom poms. NOW we gotta party guy!! Right?? Lastly, I invited some ocean friends to the party, but so far only the crab has made it on board. He was created with Martha Stewart's little crab punch (50% off coupon this week ladies!!). I doused him in Crystal Effects to imitate the shinny shell surface he hauls around. So there you go!! Are these fun Digi's or what???!! :) Hope you're enjoying your weekend!! I'm so glad you stopped by!
