The third day of my 100 day challenge today over at the 100daysproject. It is inspiring seeing all the different creative projects people are doing so do go and look. You can find out more about my individual challenge on my day 1 post here.
Today I tried something quite different for me. Although I do quite a lot of hybrid crafting and mixed media I rarely focus on digital art. Icreated the various digital components, including the background and then manipulated, arranged and coloured them using CraftArtist 2 Professional. I also added my usual copyright information etc.
Please cheer me on with my challenge and follow me on instagram if you are over there (any pointers are welcome as I have no idea what I am doing on Instagram at the moment…..what is the best way to get connected with people with similar interests?).
Our Creative Loops Challenge here this month is stars and/or stripes. This is my first card for the challenge using the beautiful digi called Pearls In My Hair from Day For Daisies. It is a birthday card for my lovely sister in law.
The stripe and floral papers were from the Victorian Roses by Make & Create. All the layers were matted onto pink card and the card was distressed using my Tim Holtz distress tool. I used a lovely translucent shimmery ribbon. All of these were from my extensive stash :-). I added three star gems and also some flowers from wild orchid crafts to embellish the card.
I used Craft Artist to create the top layer with the digi stamp and coloured the image using Promarkers.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
I made my papers on computer and inked the edges with distress ink. I also inked my pink card edges. I used my Winter fairy digi and added the wreath on computer (adding some gems). I used a lace ribbon coloured with glimmer mist and alcohol ink to run across the card and make the bow. I inked a circle with tattered rose distress ink and embossed fourishes and then highlighted them with green distress ink. The ‘have a magical Christmas’ sentiment was free with a magazine and was stamped in distress ink, I then added perfect pearls and glossy accents.
