Double Post - Another Challenge

I have another card to share with you because I found another great challenge site. It's called Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog, they're challenges are posted on Mondays, so I'm getting this in under the wire. But it also accomplishes my Dustin Pike card swap cards.



I love this image! It's so funny - but I'm not sure if the dog ripped his arm off or found it. LOL He's a sweet and playful little guy, so I think he found it and is excited to return it to it's owner.

My base is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, then I used Brocade Blue with the Traffic Jam Cuttlebug embossing folder. I then created my own photo corners, I knew I would not be able to create them perfectly, so their randomness fits right in with the embossing. I colored the image using Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. Someday I'm going to figure out what the secret is to blending all the coloring lines out. I created the sentiment on the computer.

I hope you enjoy both my posts today. Thanks for stopping by.

Edit - Whooopeee - I just learned that Digital Tuesday Challenge blog's newest challenge is a Dustin Pike image. Yaaayyy, another challenge entry!

Great card Mel, love that funny image! I believe it was drawn because one of Dustin's customer's had a dog who ate a teddy and had to have an op to remove it from his tummy!! The dog is ok thankfully!!
Thanks so much for joining in the fun at Sketch and Stash and taking up the optional challenge!!
Love Becky xx

Hi Melissa!
Everytime I see this Pike image, it totally cracks me up! You did a fabulous job with it!
I used this image a while back and when I first colored it, I didn't realize the one part was stuffing from the bear and colored it green like the bush...thankfully I realized it before I posted it and colored a new one...duh! lol
I'm so glad you played along with us this week at the Digital Tuesday Challenge!
Blessings, Maria
