Dare U 2 Digistamp

Hello, and happy Friday! We are now another week closer to retirement (oh, that's soooo scarey!!)
Here's a card that I made for a sketch lay-out challenge I found while surfing tonight. It's a digital image from Sketching Stamper, and Chris, the owner, happens to be one of the members that heads the DT for "Dare you to Digi"! You can also find the link to Sketching Stamper on the left side of my blog. Check out Chris' designs ~ she's so talented!

I colored "Elise", one of Chris' digital stamps, with Prisma and Lyra pencils using Gamsol to blend and used a bit of Copic markers to highlight her hair a bit. I used Neenah white linen cardstock, Stampin' Up's Pink Pirouette (perfect for a Ballerina!), and the most perfect designer paper that I think I purchased at JoAnn's a while back. Even the ballet slippers were cut from designer paper.

From what I can tell, this is the first of their weekly Friday challenges and you can get to their site by clicking on the title of this post. Why not join in on the fun with our friends across the Pond?

I'm a wee bit scared of digi images, not sure why, so perhaps I will one day bite the bullet and try it = biting fingernails.......

What a beautiful card! And that coloringis amazing. Love that little girl and it's a digi stamp! I've started to collect digi stamps and would like the site url so that I can see what they offer.

I clicked on the title above your picture and it took me to the challenge, not the store.

Congratulations on your near retirement!
