Swirly and Pearly

At Digi Doodle Shop’s Best the theme is ‘Swirls’.So to be in with the chance of winning a generous $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop please click on the link for details on how to play.While you’re there draw some inspiration from the beautiful DT creations.

For my card I’ve used the gorgeous Fairy 1 from Digi Doodle Shop.She’s been coloured with Promarkers.I didn’t want to complicate things colourwise so I even blended the colour on her wings using the same ones as her skin tones and dress.I also refrained from using glitter as I wanted to give her a more ‘grown up’ look.After digging around in my punches I pulled out this rather elegant one.I haven’t used in aaaages.It was one of the first border punches I bought but it doesn’t have a name on it so I have the foggiest who made it.The swirl is cut from a Sizzix Bigz Die.I have to admit there are two on it and this is the first time I’ve used this one.Because the card was a bit too pink I used Distress Inks to tone it down.I also took the whiteness off the piece the image is on using Distress Ink and Memento Ink.I used some shell pink pearls to finish.
