Robyn's Fetish Challenge # 227 - Use a Digi - 31 August, 2014

Our Sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter
The prize this week is a $20.00 gift certificate from The Paper Shelter Store

So many cute images, I used  'Sophie in the Country", look for her HERE.  Sophie also comes precoloured and with a matching paper.  I have used Copic pens to colour Sophie, printed twice, fussy cut the whole image (Sophie and fence), and then fussy cut Sophie on her own, which I have used 3d squares to layer her onto the fence.  Image is mounted on some scenery paper I had in my stash.  Added some punched twigs to the grass at the fence posts.

One grandchild says I collect special things, hubby says I keep rubbish, but I will own up to being a hoarder, the paper on this card comes from a gift box that I needed for a Diorama, I pulled the paper off, used the box and stored the paper, knew it would come in handy someday.

Pumpkin Pigwit is coloured with Copic pens, the leaves have been printed a second time and attached with 3d squares.  When I started looking for some background papers, I realised that the leaves were a great match to the colours on the image, Yeah! once again my hoarding has proved useful.

Our Sponsor this week is Imagine That....digis by Kris
The prize this week is 3 images of the winner's choice from the Imagine That Store.

The designers were asked to choose images and I chose 3 images from a set of Ladybugs.  Swinging Ladybug, Ladybug Watermelon and Ladybug on a Mushroom.  All so cute I couldn't decide on one only, they also come with precoloured images as well.

My ladybugs (we call them ladybirds in Australia) are all coloured with Copic, Touch and Kaisercraft pens in bright fanciful colours with lots of glitter.  Added some diecut scrolls also.  The card folds flat for posting and you can see the typed sentiment. "Have a Bugalicious Day".  For display purposes the Swinging Ladybug swings out over the edge.  And when you open the card, Ladybug on a Mushroom pops out.  (I hope that all makes sense)  Pictures will probably explain it more.

For displaying, Swinging Mushroom is now swinging out over the card

Digitally Created Card

I do a lot of digital scrapping, and love it when I get the opportunity to enter a challenge that has digital requirements.  That is the case this week at The Paper Shelter, "Make it Digitally".  I have used an image called , Dollie, Sleepyhead.  It was great to colour digitally as the illustration has lines that intersect without gaps.  I have used Photoshop Elements to create this digital card, the background designer papers, together with the image come from Polka Doodle Images.
