Freebie Weekend with Rick

It has fast grown into a tradition that Rick St Dennis draws up 2 special images and gives them away for the first 14 days of their release. These will maybe find their way into the Etsy shop but sometimes it's a case of "WIGIG". This weekend, marking the first Saturday of the month, is no exception and the freebies can be obtained by visiting the two blogs. Sparkle and Glitter for the cute, cuddly type image and for those that like images that are edgier there's Airless Chambers. There is a little contest on each of the blogs as well. The respective images have to be used in the making of a project. There is, of course, a little prize for the favourite of the EDT on each blog. For more details, you'll just have to go take a peek.

The other EDT girls have been colouring in and making a few (hopefully) inspirational pieces of the two images and these can be seen in all their glory on each of their blogs but of course there is a taster on the Sparkle and Glitter and Airless Chambers blogs.

My offerings of these two little darlings.....
first up is a cute little Summer Faerie
coloured with promarkers

Fussy cut out and added to a card. The die-cut bg is copper glitter card. The DP there is a piece from the (docrafts? papermania?)woodland friends stack and another from the "London line". There is a mat of apricot card that is shown better by employing the handkerchief corner method. A large flower secured with a pearl brad, a golden die-cut butterfly complete with pearl body. The sentiment is stamped onto a scrap of green and matted onto more apricot card and some tiny pearls used to decorate. The lace and ribbon are from stash.
 Next came the little Grumpy Dragon
Again coloured with promarkers
and again fussy cut out
I attached a chain around the neck. What dragon would be happy chained?
Mounted onto a piece of embossed black/yellow core-dinations. The DP is some I picked up last year and can't remember the make:( Matted onto copper and bronze pearlised paper.
 The flames are cuts from Accent Essentials cricut cart.
The sentiment is one of those found on the Indigo Blu "Little Voice" rubber set. Stamped with black stazon onto a translucent piece of red and die-cut out. Attached with pale orange brads.

That's it from me folks.
Please feel free to go snag your freebies and tell your friends where they are. Then we'd love you to come link in to the challenge so that we can admire your makes.
