Beauty of the Carousel

At Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week we’d love to see you Make Your Own Flowers.To be in for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate for Digi Doodle Shop please visit the challenge site for full details.You don’t have to use a Digi Doodle Shop image but if you do your entry will count twice!Don’t forget to take a peek at the DT’s wonderful work!

I’ve used the very beautiful Carousel from Digi Doodle Shop to create my card.The colouring has been done with Copic Sketch Markers.I tried something a little different to make the shaped card base.I took just the corner punch from my Martha Stewart Cherish Punch Around the Page set to scallop the bottom edge and shape the corners. I did the same on the patterned paper but just punched the corners on the image piece.I tried to replicate the pelmet on the carousel by draping some grossgrain ribbon under the image. I made the flowers by cutting out the shapes from some coordinating paper 6 times and doubled up the layers.To add dimension I first folded them in half horizontally and vertically pattern side in then quarter turned them and folded themin the same manner pattern side out.I added a stamped sentiment in an ink as close a match as I could find to one of the Copics I used .Some 2mm and 3mm gems have been used to embellish.

Apart from being beautiful I think this is just the most perfect Summertime image.

Pretty as a Princess

Spots and Stripes is the challenge at AiFactory Challenges this week.Who doesn’t love ’em,eh?You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday July 20th to upload your project using the link below. You do not have to use an AIF image but we would love it if you did and you get an extra entry. You can find some great images in the store here. Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s fabulous work while you’re there.

I’ve used Princess Digital Stamp  from AiFactory for my card.Isn’t she pretty?She’s been coloured with ProMarkers including the Gold Metallic on her crown.I layered her up on some My Minds Eye papers,the photo anchors were from an embelllishment sheet in the paper pack, and some coordinating card.I’ve embossed a strip of card and laid a punched row of flowers over the top.This is the first time I’ve used it and it was another bargain from my local craft warehouse.I thought £7.99 was a fabby price for an EK Success Slim Edger Punch.Do you see the cute little metal flowers in the bottom left corner?Another bargain from my local craft warehouse.They’re a little like staples and I think you’re supposed to set them with a machine but I just poked the arms through the paper and used my fingers to bend them over.Easy peasy.
