Roasted - I can now announce that I made the DT for The Sweet Pea Stampers. I love their images and now you can even get a lot of them in Digi.

The first challenge as a DT member is men/boys. A tough one as Sweet Pea stamps have so many gorgeous fairy and mermaid images.  

For my first card, I have used this sweet Marshmallow Dragon by Lisa Victoria. I colored him with Copics and added white with a poster pen.

My second image on the card is this awesome Treasure Map by Teresa Sherman. This was the first image that I got from Teresa Sherman's shop. It is available in rubber at Sweet Pea Stamps. 

I have torn it out, wadded it up several times and then used my distress inks on it.

I have used this image so many times. It is so great for male cards and my grandchildren and their friends have all made their very own treasure map using it. Some of the children that I have made these treasure maps with, are as young as 3. I love to watch their faces when I hand it to them and then tell them to start tearing it.  

My designer papers are Teresa Collins, World Traveler. My only embellishment is red pearls and black gemstones.

Come and join our challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers. You don't have to use a Sweet Pea image to play with us, but the images certainly are beautiful and a delight to see.
