I absolutely love the convenience of digital images and purchased a few images from her shop a few days ago.. they are all terrific, but some in particular really caught my eye and they were perfect for a project I had in mind. So I quickly got busy making up this card for the challenge. I enlarged the digital image to make it the central focus of my card.
By the way, in celebration of her first challenge, Isabella has a sale going on... all images are 20% off at her shop today through Friday. We all love sales, right? So hop over there to check it out. And you might want to check out the DT requirements on her blog.. she's looking for some talented people to join her team.
I'm linking this up to her challenge.. she's got some great prizes this week to celebrate kicking off her challenges. Random winners will have a shot at...
First Place: a $15 gift certificate to Isabella's
Second Place: $9 gift certificate to Isabella's
Third Place: $6 gift certificate to Isabella's
This was a really fun project to work on. After coloring with Prismacolor pencils and OMS, I heat-set Ranger's Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel, (gave it five coats allowing it to dry in between) then popped it into the freezer for about 15 minutes before cracking it. I used Ranger's tea dye to give it an antique/distressed look. I'll be doing this technique again in the near future... it was a lot of time spent doing it, but I love the outcome. Even the men in my house approved!
So thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello. I'm wishing you a wonderful Spring day..
'Til next time happy coloring and be safe in all you do.
