Born in a barn

Animals is the theme at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week.Please take a look at the challenge blog for details on how to play along and be in the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop.Don’t forget to check out the beautiful DT work while you’re there.

Don’t forget to check my sidebar for this months specials over at the store.One is for a very good cause.

I really wanted to make this super image the focal point of a clean and simple card and then thought why not make it the card!It’s called Funny Farm from Digi Doodle Shop and I’ve coloured it using ProMarkers.Of course the only issue is that they bleed through the card but I always line my cards with an insert so problem solved.I touched up the woodwork with a white gel pen and used it to whiten the large animals eyes and the horses teeth.Veneers?Who needs ’em?!I trimmed it into square card then shaped it at the top.

This would make a great kid’s colouring page too.You could even laminate it to make it wipe clean so they could use it time and time again.Perfect for those rainy winter days.Speaking of laminating how cute would this look once coloured (either by you or the little ‘uns) then tuned into a placemat.Beacause you can resize digi’s you could also produce matching coasters!Wouldn’t that make a fabby gift too?

Image : Funny Farm from Digi Doodle Shop
Colouring Mediums : ProMarkers,Sakura White Gel Pen
Base card : Craft Essentials A4 White Card Pack (only 99p for 20 sheets at The Works!Best card for alcohol markers in my opinion – no bleeding and no inkjet smears!)
