It's challenge time, again, at Stamping With The Dragon. and we have a special sponsor, with a special prize, this time!
We're being sponsored by none other than Rick St Dennis, and he's giving the winner an awesome prize! There will only be ONE LUCKY WINNER for this week's challenge. That winner will receive a Once in a Lifetime Digital Sheet of the 3 dragons images used by the Design Team, as well as several other images that fit the theme.
For those of you not familiar with Rick St Dennis, here is his bio:
Now a much collected pen and ink artist brings his art to DIGI-Stamps!
Designer of over 100 theatrical productions, Rick St Dennis is also the author of 4 books on decorative painting and contributor to at least a dozen national magazines on crafts and art. He has taught design at the college level as well as seminars and classes across the USA and Canada. He is one of a handful of designers to have designed TWO productions of AIDA, Verdi's massive Egyptian opera spectacle. Currently living in the quiet beach community of Seal Beach, California he writes restaurant reviews and theater reviews between assignments for web designs, logos and creating art for local shows. Rick has appeared on such TV shows as Home Matters with Susan Powell, Aileen's Crafts and others. He was Crafts editor for Country Folk Art Magazine and sells his artwork nationally through galleries and shows. Among numerous awards he has won a presidential commendation in 1976 for his contributions to the bicentennial year including the design of the west coast premier of William Grant Still's opera BAYOU LEGEND. His drawings and paintings are in the collections of Diana Ross, Sandy Duncan, Sammy Davis Jr. and Jacqueline Onnasis amongst others.
Our challenge theme is fantasy. Rick St Dennis gave the DT three awesome dragon images to work with, for our fantasy theme. I was soooo excited, too, because I've always loved fantasy themed things, so this was right up my alley!
For my DT project, I decided to try something new, and alter a clock. This is my first attempt, so I was a little nervous about it, but I'm very happy with how it turned out.
My friend, Dan, loves fantasy themed things as much, if not more, than I do. So I thought this clock would make a perfect Christmas gift for him!
I used this awesome dragon image called, "Late Knight Snack," by Rick St Dennis, and colored him with my Promarkers. Glitter and sparkle were adding to the image with a Clearstar Gelly Roll pen. The blue DP is embossed with silver stars and seems to fit perfect with the image and theme. The silver numbers are cut out and then matted on green cardstock.
This was such a fun project to make, and I love how it turned out!
