Craft Cardmakers Challenge #14 Digital Delights


It's Challenge #14 over at Crafty Cardmakers .

Our challenge this fortnight is to use digital elements, be that digital stamps, printed papers or sentiments on your design. So long as you use a computer generated bit thats fine!

I love using digital images and elements so this is a great challenge for me.

I used an image from Pink Petticoat and printed it out 3 times so I could decoupage certain parts of the design. The image is coloured using my Promarkers to which I have added Stickles glitter glue and lots of blingy gems to the flower centres. I matted the image onto black card and used a metallic silver pen around the edges.

The layout of the card is the latest sketch #69 from Eat, Sleep, Stamp . I covered the A5 card with paper from Doodlebug. The hearts paper is from Ki Memories and I edged it with a thick black marker to make it stand out against the backing paper better. The red circle is also from Ki Memories and I used a thin black marker to doodle a dash and kiss border along the visible edges. The sentiment panel is from a magazine freebie paper pack and has been mounted onto black card and again edged with the silver pen. I love how bright this card is, but the black and silver gives it a masculine edge.

For the insert I have combined 2 freebie digi images and put the sentiment inside the heart frame. There are loads and loads of free digi images available around the net and I hope you will have a go yourself. I use a program called Xara but most images can very simply be printed from Word so you don't need to buy an expensive program to have a play with them.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the cards made from this challenge and all the digi images that are used. The other DT members have made some fabulous examples on the blog and the prize for this challenge is some gorgeous little bee images from Tasha at Dewdrop Craftz. They are just soo blooming cute :) Unfortunately the DT can't win them though......

I've incorporated the following challenges into this card

Fabulous card. I love the tree image. I must get some lessons on how to use digi images. All I do is print them out - must learn how to combine them.
