July Freebies from Rick st. Dennis

Hello Bloggy friends! I am excited to share two new projects with you featuring Rick St. Dennis images. The best part? YOU can get these images for free when you visit the Sparkle and Glitter Blog and the Airless Chambers Blog.

This is the Summer Faerie, and I love her. she is just so cute!!! I love fairies in general, but this one is fantastic! I loved coloring her, and as soon as I saw her, I knew how I wanted her to look.

I was so anal about how I wanted her colored, I had to call my mom who works at one of the craft store chains to pick up the Yellows" set from Spectrum Noir, as I HAD to have them to finish her off! She is colored completely with my Spectrum Noirs. And yeah, even though there is not a lot of yellow on her, It was just what I needed to be happy with the finished image.

Now on to my card for Airless Chambers. It features another one of my favorite things....a dragon!

This is the Grumpy Dragon. Again, I used my Spectrum Noirs to color him in. I think perhaps he may have just woken up.....that could be the cause of the grumpiness!

I used a Texture Plate from Fiskars to create the scaly paper. I used a gold rubby paint on top to make it metallic.

So...are you excited to get these images for yourself? When you do, be sure to enter our contest as well. You could win even more images! So please visit the Airless Chambers Blog as well as Sparkle and Glitter. And don't forget to pop over Rick's blog to say hello as well! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
