Corrosive Challenge169 - Sparkle and Shine

I feel like it was just yesterday that I couldn't believe it was already February, and now it's March!  Not that I am complaining.  After several late winter storms, I am SO READY for winter to be over.  Enough of the gray, gloomy skies, cold weather and nasty brown piles of snow.  At least we have a new challenge to look forward to!  
This week we have a brand new sponsor over at The Corrosive Challenge...Rick St Dennis!  He has so many unique and varied stamps available, and fresh challenges and ideas over at the Rick St Dennis Blog.  He very generously let the team each choose an image, and it was not an easy choice!  I ended up choosing  Dragon.  How cool is this guy!?  
The new challenge, in honor of Rick's Blog named "Sparkle and Glitter", is to add Sparkle and Shine to your project.
I started with Dragon, and colored him with Copics, then added tons of stickles and glitter.  Some of the stickles are a little more dull in color, but they add a lot of texture and shine in the right light.  The word Dragon was part of the image, so I chose to cut that out and center it.

While I generally try to use a sketch for the most part, I ended up winging this one a bit.  I wanted the image to really stick out, so I decided to just go right off the page and have it stick out.  I cut the image out using Labels 8 Spellbinders Die Cut, and sponged with some bronze colored ink.

Papers:  Bo Bunny "Serenity", "Serenity back to backs Blossoms", MME "All Spice" 6x6 pad.
Embellies:  Recollections - Lace on a roll, and brads.  Hemptique "Metallic Classic" twine, charm from stash.  Tim Holz Distress Stickles "Aged Mahogony", Studio g yellow glitter glue.

Looking forward to seeing some major sparkle and shine in your entries, and check back on Monday to see our fabulous winners from our Rainbow Bright Challenge.  Here's hoping some springy weather is right around the corner!
