Our challenge this week at DU2DS is "BLING",which could mean glitter,glitter glue,gems,metal etc...all we ask along with the theme is to use a digital image somewhere on your project,now the image can be from any company,so why not come and join in and let your creativity "SHINE" through...pardon the pun.
For my card i've used one of Chris's (sketching stamper) digi images "Vicky",printed off twice,then used the one image to cut the parts of her dress out,i then adhered some embossed foil paper to these pieces so that i could paper piece her dress...the foil catches the light really well,but couldn't capture this on the photo :0(.
The rest of the image was coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's.To glam Vicky up alittle more i added glitter to her hairbands and gave her a necklace and matching bracelet,which i used nail gems,these are minute compared the the adhesive gems i normally use butare more in propotion to the image.
To finish off i used some broad satin ribbon and a slider from my stash,the nail gems i used are "moonstone" which change blue/orange in the light hence the blue ribbon.
Well that's about it,all that's left to say is thank you to those of you who came and joined us last week hope to see you all again,and any of you who didn't make it last week maybe see you this week :0),
Have a lovely day,
Take care
San xx

Hi San, your card is fantastic! Love how you coloured Vicky and the metal for the dress looks wonderful, great idea with the nail art gems, they really are the perfect size for her necklace. Great design, the ribbon and slider are the perfect bling. Hope you have a very Happy Easter. Take care, Chris xx
