The Outlawz Copic/Promarkers Challenge

We have another great challenge for you this week.  Our theme is “Color An Animal”.  It can be any animal, just as long as you use either Copics or Promarkers.  We have more amazing prizes this month on The Outlawz, hope to see you there!

Dustin Pike 2

The image I am using this week is a “Dragon” by Dustin Pike.  Doesn’t he look all cute dressed like a knight!

I colored the image with copics, and used a template and distress inks by Tim Holtz for the clouds.  The color of the ink is Tumbled Glass. 

My tip for doing the clouds is: “I use an old paint brush and put an elastic around the bristles, this way the ink all goes in one place when I am dabbing on the ink.  I find it works like a charm!”

The designer paper is from the Out Of Print paper pad by Basic Grey.  I used the Cuttlebug Corner Die to make the decoration, and then added a brad by Doodlebug.  The sentiment was computer generated.
