Hello there,

This is for today's SCS Technique Challenge 216 Metal Stamping where we were to use an empty soda can on our card. See here for details on that.

This is also for Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge #2 Bling where we were to use at least one digital stamp and of course, BLING.

My image is from an awesome artist named Dustin Pike. He makes some of the cutest digi stamps!! I just got this one yesterday and couldn't wait to use it.

I colored my dragon with Prismacolor Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits. Of course my bling is around the scallop. My flowers are my soda can. I stamped a flower from Ginormous Flowers and used the flower punch to punch it out. Now my StazOn stamping left spots I didn't like. So, too make it bold and solid, I took a paint brush and filled it in the StazOn ink refill.

What do y'all think?
