Hot and Bothered! Sweet!

Here is my card for Dustin Pike's ( challenge - Hot and Bothered. Sounds kinda racy, huh? Nope. I just had to create something summer themed. You must use a Doodle Dragon Design image ( I chose one of the images for the "members" that signed up for special images every month/year. What's better in the summertime than cool ice cream?!?!?

Here's what I used:

Doodle Dragon Design image (bear with ice cream) printed on CTMH White Daisy cardstock from my HP printer, Prismacolors (PC924, 930, 1009, 909, 945, 943, 946, 1051, 1082, 997, 922, 1002, 939, 1034) with Sansodor, red/green/yellow glitter cardstock from DCWV, Queen and Co Ice Rox in Classy Reds/Sunflower Yellow/Grass Green, Stickles by Ranger in Xmas Red/Yellow/Green/Lavender/Fruit Punch, CTMH Liquid Glass, patterned paper from my stash, chipboard letter from Scrapworks Shimmer Shapes Carnival Alphabet in Red, double sided tape and foam adhesive.

My first 6x6 card. I let some "white space" on the left side because I wanted the patterned paper to show well. I love the colors and screams summer.

I colored about four more images of the bear with ice cream with Copics. I didn't care for them. I don't think I have enough colors yet to be able to blend like I want. But the Prismacolors, on the other hand, blend awesomely! Plus, a while back, I bought the set that has all the colors with a 40% off coupon! I can blend like a fool! Still learning, tho. Eventually I would like to be as good as Lelia and Holley in coloring. You can check out their blogs from the side of my page.

Well, it's getting late and I need to get this posted for the challenge.

Working on a few more challenges tomorrow. Then I'm going to make some cards for the troops.

Nitey nite.

yummy icecream!!Love your papers too. My Hp printer smudges digi's when I colour them with Promarkers, but since I've changed the ink to a cheaper brand they've been ok, but I think I should lookout for that card you used. ((Lyn))
