Digistamps4Joy Challenge #40: Celebration

It’s time for another fabulous challenge over at Digistamps4Joy and this time the theme is Celebrate!  Any kind of celebration....birthday, anniversary, wedding...the choices are endless. The only condition is that it must have glitter, sparkle and bling. I don’t know about you, but I just love anything that glitters and sparkles…or as my dear daughter would say “Ooooh Shiney’s”…she loves everything that glitters and sparkles too! So for this challenge we want you to add the glitter, the stickles, the rhinestones...whatever you want to make your creation really shine!

For this challenge I wanted to go with something just a little bit different. It was my brother’s birthday recently and I wanted to do him a card that was just a bit “off the wall”, in other words…let my warped sense of humour come out! So the image that I chose to play with is Digistamps4Joy’s Lil Dragon (with extra detail). You can find it and all of their other fab creations here.   
I coloured him using my metallic water colour paints and 2 different red glitter pens. I also used some metallic gold on his horns and claws.   
Now you have to admit, for a dragon he’s pretty darn cute! I did the glittering lines on the base cardstock myself. I found a great tutorial on how to do it here. And it was so super easy to do! The sentiment is one that I came up with myself...yup...the warped sense of humour in full swing!

I just had to take a picture with my flash so that you could see how wonderfully he shines with that metallic water colour paint.
So the rules of the challenge are pretty simple...go to our challenge blog with your creation, you don't have to use a Digistamps4Joy image but would we ever be hopping up and down with happiness if you did, and add it to our wonderful little linky tool. Those who use a Digistamps4Joy image will get not just one extra entry but TWO extra entries into our challenge and a chance to win a $6 Gift Voucher. How's that for a little bonus? The winner will win 3 images of their choice. Sounds pretty great huh? So what are you waiting for...head on over to our challenge blog and check out the challenge and all of the rules. And while you're there, check out what my teamies have come up with...but beware...there's lots of glitter and sparkle happening! 

Just a reminder.....

Keep checking back over the next couple of or on the Digistamps4Joy Blog....we have some exciting news coming from Digistamps4Joy and you really are not going to want to miss out on it!!
