Ahoy! Matey!

Have you ever seen a dragon pirate (or is it pirate dragon)? This one is just adorable! The ship deck and water background, keg, box, cannonballs and the pirate are all digi images from Dustin Pike.

They are all colored with Prismacolor markers and Prismacolor pencils. The images are layered for a 3D effect. There's a little bit of stitching on the paper layers and some big waves stitched inside. The embossed background paper is inked in gold as are the edges of the various paper layers.
The challenge this week at Creative Card Crew is to make a card with a scene. I've entered this card.


  1. Wow!! Your coloring continues to amaze me!! Such beautiful cards and I love the 3D effect!

  2. Cindy, I love this card. I checked out this digi site and there are some cute ones. You did an outstanding job on this and colored it beautifully!

  3. Awesome! You and Dustin P. make a great team Cindy. I am in awe of the green paper! Looks like Cuttlebug folder swirls but how did you get the color in the swirls?
    Too cool! Love how you colored the image too!

  4. This is so cute. I love the dragon. I am going to have to check this site out. Great job!

  5. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Your card is adorable and the coloring is flawless. I love how you did the stitched waves inside the card. How did you do that?

  6. Cindy = This is such a GREAT card!! When is it for sale??! LOL Those cannonballs should be replaced with coffee beans!! Think how great the card would smell!

  7. I had never heard of Dustin Pike until this. All of his digis are so cute! And I can't believe the deal of 118 digis for only $25. Thanks for introducing him to me!
