New releases at Digistamps4Joy - 28 Oct.2012

Image
It's Sunday, and Digistamps4Joy has released 10 brand new images. I made a card with one of the new images called "Farm scenery" and a previously released image called "Country Cousin".

I used my SN pens and watercolour pencils to colour the images, then punched flowers from the DP I used, and finally added some lace and bling.

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

CDAC drawing entry - "Got ya"

Image
I found some time to do a drawing for the CDAC Digital drawing challenge, and here it is ... "Got Ya!!"
The theme was halloween or scary, but because I do not celebrate halloween, I thought that sharks are generaly 'scary' to most people. But who wants a scary shark on their card? So I cartoonised him slightly by giving him a silly grin. Hope you like it. I will put him in the shop this Sunday.


21 Oct - New releases at Digistamps4Joy

Image
It's Sunday, and Digistamps4Joy has released 10 spanking new images, drawn by Jen, myself, my dad (yes!!!) and from the Janel range at Country Crafts.  I made a card with the image I drew and called it "Ice skates" and this is available in the SHOP.  I know we are in summer here in the southern hemisphere, but I just could not resist making an icy cold card with snow!

The image required very little colouring with my alcohol pens. The 'starry' shapes were cut with the "Simply 2-Die-4" die set, I punched the white flowers and silver centers, and added brads to hold them together. The DP with snowflakes is from "W & M" (I love their paper sets). To finish off the card I added glitter gems and white flower soft.The sentiment is a peel-off. Here is a close-up of the "snow".

New releases at Digistamps4Joy

Image
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.

Challenge #52 at Digistamps4Joy

Image
YES, it's time for a new challenge at Digistamps4Joy - Challenge #52 -  "Create a tag OR incorporate a tag on your papercraft project". 
I decided to create AND sort of incorporate my tag on this flat card. I've made this type before as it works quite nicely by making a little pocket on the front to slip the tag into. I used the TEA TIME CORNER image from the Digistamps4Joy STORE and coloured it in with SN pens, then added the requisite "bling" to the tablecloth. Do pop into the DS4J BLOG and see what the other DT members have created for this challenge, and then enter YOUR creation in the InLinkz to put yourself in line for winning a prize!
