Still trying to catch up with my craft room sorting, but am making some cards in between, mainly for DT work. Hopefully the weekend will be playtime for fun.
Today is a reminder that challenge #68 going on at Digistamps4Joy has the theme "Forever young" Here in South Africa we celebrate Youth day on 16 June, and with this in mind we challenge you to use any image depicting youth. Just to mention that should you use a DS4J image you will of course get an extra chance in the draw. The DT have made some wonderful cards for your inspiration, so do go and have a look at them. Hope to see you join in the fun.
Also something fairly new is the introduction of a rewards system when purchasing images at the shop. For every $10 spent you get $1 reward, which could be used towards your next purchase.......great idea I think.
My card is using the image "Special friends" and can be found HERE.
I used Distress inkpads to colour the image, added liquid pearls for the buttons and Stickles frosted lace to the dress. Cut it out with a round scalloped die, matted onto Patterned paper, from a no name paper block. The flowers were punched with Nellie Snellen floral punches and sprayed with glimmer mist and liquid pearl centres. A pity the flowers do not show up the true colour on the photo.
Lace, ribbon bow and pearls to finish.
I made this card with the challenge of 613 avenue create in mind. I found it such fun.
