One for the Boys DaisyDoodles Challenge

Morning all,
This weeks Challenge from Daisy Doodles is 'One for the Boys'.  Here I've used Ryan the Footballer and it's a pack which includes 4! backing papers and only $3!  I've made a simple matted and layered 8 inch square card and printed off the Ryan image and coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens.  I've finished it off with a simple rosette made using my Hougie board, topped with a Spellbinder round die cut with a peel off sticker for the sentiment.  So come and join in the challenge and have a look at the fab images for you to collect at Daisys Store.

Daisy Doodles Easter Challenge

Shades of Sympathy

Hi all,  this weeks Daisy Doodles challenge is entitled 'Easter', but as I'm all 'Eastered' out I thought I'd show you just how versatile a digi image can be and how it can be used in an alternate way.  Also I wanted to show how a digital image could easily be altered using one of the many graphics packages around at the moment, especially if you where lucky enough to get the 'free' Craft Artist Professional disc this weekend!!  I thought this image would easily adapt to a Sympathy card which are very difficult to tackle sometimes, so I've taken the Floral Cross digi image and brought it into my graphics package and changed the colour to a brown line to go with the theme I have in mind. I've then added a sentiment to match the them in the same line colour.  I've printed this off onto cream card and coloured with my Spectrum Noirs and inked the edges to add a little further interest.  I've then used a sheet of the Ebony Floral Papers, again changing the colour to brown in my graphics package, to blend even further I have used a brayer over this with several shades of brown inks to cover the stark white background.  I have then matted all together as shown, onto an A5 brown centura pearl card base and added a punched ribbon edge which has also been brayered. 
So, get yourself along to Daisy's Challenge blog page and join in the fun....
This card is also being entered into  Emma's Crafty Challenge - Chocolate   due to it's lovely shades of chocolate ie dark, milk and white!  (even thos some of it looks a little pink in this photo - it's not)

Image Inspirations Challenge

This weeks Image Inspiration Challenge is using this wonderful digistamp from Daisy Doodles entitled 'Wedded Bliss' - I've really loved working with this one, so many ideas and so versatile.  I've created a large A4 card this time and built up with punched borders layered around the image which I cut out with my cuttlebug, coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens, added a little glitter, some pearl flourishes & ribbon & ribbon roses to finish.  Hope you like it and hope it inspires you to give it a go.  So come along and try the challenge with this special offer at Daisy Doodles.  Good luck and happy crafting :o)
