Ok, so I went onto http://sketchingstamperdigi-stamps.blogspot.com/ last night and bought the shoe digi stamp (see post below) so I could make a card for my Auntie, then you know what its like.. I fell in love with quite a few images, and then you think well its only 99p so 3 ended up in my basket! (I also got the handbag!)
Now I own digi stamps, I then had to check out digi challenge blogs. I really wanted to try http://dareu2digistamp.blogspot.com/ The challenge was "Distressing" and I thought the images I got worked quite well! also I am still trying to master the whole distressed look, so it was a good chance to give it a try. The only thing as it is a Friday challenge I have rushed this a bit to put it in on the 11th hour! (also the reason for the rubbish photo!)
I have also used the sketch from http://sketchandstashchallenge.blogspot.com/ As I just got my little digi stamp the other night and I have never used, thought it defiantly counted as new stash.
Have coloured the stamp with my whispers pens, then gone over with my twinkling "H20's - Iridescent Red, Iridescent Gold" also a little " stickles - distress worn lipstick" I have printed the image a couple of times to create a dimensional look.
The paper is " Daisy Ds - Nursery pink flowers" Its double sided, so I have used both sides of the paper. I think the velvet ribbon is from crafty bits, from a kit I bought forever ago. and the velvet flowers are "Prima" and finally it has been finished with a few adhesive gems, and faux stitching (I didnt have time to get the sewing machine out!!)
and that's about it.....

Another great card Juls. I know what you mean about buying digi stamps. It is so easy and so instant and they are so cheap before you know it you have spent a few pounds. Still great value though and you don't have to wait for the postie! I've bought some things from Charmed Cards and Crafts in the last few days and they are really quick. Well worth a look.ReplyDelete
