7th Birthday Card

This image is from another digi stamp site that I found - Bugaboo Stamps. They have some really nice ones too, I love the 'flower gals' range!

This was a fun image to play with. I coloured her with my promarkers, added glossy accents and glamour dust in various places and added a gem for the candle flame. I made the sentiment on the computer and cut out the number with my circle nesties. Backing paper is from the 'Piece of Cake' pack by Dovecraft.

Early Fathers Day?

I was browsing for digi stamps yesterday and came across a couple of sites that I hadn't seen before. The image above comes from Designed2Delight Digital Stamps. I bought a few other images but got this one mainly to enter into their challenge. It's a lovely idea, first you get the digital stamp from their shop that they are featuring this week, then make something with it and post it to the challenge. Then following week they send you a digi free and you do it all again! It's a lovely way to build up a nice digi stamp collection and they get a lovely gallery of cards... everyone's a winner. If none of that rambling made sense then go check it out, I have a tendency not to explain myself very well!

I thought this image would be good for masculine cards (always a tricky one for me) and then I decided it would make a nice Fathers Day card (very early, I know!)
I paper pieced the present and his boots using these papers from Pink Petticoat, coloured the bear with my promarkers, added a little glossy accent to his nose, a little stickles to the gift and distressed the edges just a bit. I found the sentiment and the frame on my computer from ages ago, so I don't remember where it's from.
