New releases at Digistamps4Joy

It's Sunday, and Digistamps4Joy has released 12 brand new images. I made a card with one of the images called "Winston". Now this one has a special meaning to me because my father drew it in 1951 - so dad, this is for you! I scanned in his drawing and digitised the image, then searched for a suitable Churchill quote! The end result is this easel card which could be given to any person.

 I used my Spectrum Noir pens to colour the image, dies for the oval shapes, a new punch for the lacey double-sided border, and created the sentiment on the PC.
To see the rest of the fantastic new releases and the cards the DT made with them, head on over to the DS4J BLOG.

I am entering the card into the following challenges

  11. Well it makes perfect sense that this would also be one of your favourite cards. How amazing that you have been able to digitize one of your dad's drawings. That is just fabulous!!! I love the quote you used as well.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to link up three of your favourites from the past year. I've really enjoyed checking them out.

    Regards,
    Lisa
