DT card for Creative Moments Challenge

I had such a lovely time making up these DT cards.

The digis are wonderful to work with and colour. The first digi comes from Glitterbabes and was made into a card using papers from Daisy Trail.  Though it was the winter set I loved the way the paper looked like driftwood.  I had a happy accident with the printed image that got creased as my daughter climbed over it on the sofa.  I screwed up the bottom even more than used the creases as a base for my rocks.

The second was coloured slightly differently and assembled using Debbi More papers and embellishments from one of her inspiration magazines.

I love this little mouse digi that is from Floppy Latte  I have seen the sentiment used with rain images on a few occasions before, so printed this out using the computer.  I don’t usuallydo the super embellished cards but I wanted something really special to send to a much loved relative.

Birthday Teddy

This is a Teddy Bo digi coloured with Promarkers.  I was pleased with the translucent effect of the balloons .  I wanted to keep the embellishments to a minimum so as not to detract from the colouring.

Creative Moments challenge – Monochrome

The clocks for this card are from The Cutting Café – I decided to use the time theme to make a belated birthday card.  I cut and arranged them and finished with a Steampunk Kanban stamped image called Jasper and some sentiments.  This was challenging as I love colour!

My second card was a cheat as I had to resort to colour but I kept it monotone I used a Cutting Crew clock but covered the face with a thank you sentiment.  The dressform is from Kanban again.  I wanted to use the clocks to link to Steampunk.
