Twigis

Image
A twinchie is a 2 inch x 2 inch piece of artwork, in other words, any drawing/painting that fits onto a 2" square block! So I played around a little with creating a digistamp to fit this size, and came up with my first set which I am calling the "Beach twigis". The word TWIGI is my own definition for the mix between a 'twinchie' and a 'digi'. As these are miniature works of art, none of the lines have been drawn with a ruler, which I think adds to their charm. The set is made up of 6 artworks plus one sentiment and will be available in the Digistamps4Joy shop on Sunday 30th September.
I then coloured in 5 of the images (6th one is an ice cream cone but not shown) and the sentiment with SN pens, and made up a card with the coloured images.
I think the beauty of these is first of all that they are DIGISTAMPS so can be resized to 1" artwork ("inchies") or larger if you want a larger image than 2", therefore no boundaries! Secondly, addin…

New digistamp releases at Digistamps4Joy

Image
It's Sunday, and Digistamps4Joy has released another 10 images. I got to play with one of the images called "Onika" and I made a centre-step card.
 I used a combination of Spectrum Moir and watercolouring pencils to colour the image. The leaves were punched with 2 different punches, and the shape around the image was cut with a die.
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

Lady Anne's - ‘Anything goes’ Creative Craft Challenges, ‘Anything goes’
Heck of a Challenge - Anything goes Digi Design Challenge - use more than 1 die cut or punch



"Bettie bow" - a new release at DS4J

Image
Digistamps4Joy has released some super new images into the shop today! To see a summary of the new images pop into the website or the BLOG and see the cards that the DT have made to show off these images!! I made a peephole card with one of the new images called "Bettie bow". The outside of the card has the peephole (Punched with a MS punch) through which a tiny portion of the DS4J image can be seen. I also added a gingham punched border to the inside and outside of the card.
The inside of the card shows the 'real deal! The image is coloured with SN pens and I added a little glitter glue so she looked 'blingy'.


I am entering this tag into the following challenges:
Digi Designs - use more than one diecut or punch
Sugar Creek Hollow - shabby chic/pink
Card Crafter's Circle - add gingham
Joyful stamper - anything goes





New DIGISTAMPS4JOY releases (Sunday 9 Sept.2012)

Image
Digistamps4Joy has released some super new images into the shop today! To see a summary of the new images pop into the website or the BLOG and see the cards that the DT have made to show off these images!! I made a plantpot tag with one of the new images called "Herb".

Jen was visiting at the time and suggested making a tag instead of a card and what a brilliant idea! I just LOVE the end result so much that I asked her to design a set of these tags for herbs, so WATCH THE DS4J SHOP!!!!

I used a combination of my new Derwent watercolour pencils and Spectrum Noir pens, added the image to a dark brown background, added a dotted white line border, and then layered this onto red cardstock. The peg for pushing into the ground (not visible as it is black!) was fixed to the back of the card.

I am entering this tag into the following challenges:
Just Some Lines - two colouring mediums
One Stop Craft Challenge - no floral embellishments
Paper Crafting Journey - anything goes
Joyful s…

Craft Your Passion Challenge

This is my last post as a DT member of Patties Creations.
Pattie is sponsoring the challenge over at Craft Your Passion and her DT members were invited to 'play along' and make a card for this new challenge. The theme for this challenge is "Hip to be SQUARE"... must be a square shaped card, and the challenge starts 8th October.
I used Pattie's gorgeous little "Hermit Crab" image from her store and coloured her in with my Spectrum Noir pens.  The dots on the shell were made with a white gel pen.
Don't forget to head on over to the Craft Your Passionblog and enter your card!
