Daisy’s Image Inspirations

Over at 

 our challenges run fortnightly so on the off Wednesday the Designers will be creating with a specially selected digi from the Daisy Doodles Store.

The image we are working with today is Easter Egg and it is available from the store at the very special price of only $0.50

I have made an egg shaped card which has been paper pieced. I started with a lovely floral paper in soft pastel shades, enlarged the image and printed it out 8” high straight onto the patterned paper. The quality of the store images are really crisp and the lines are really smooth even when you increase the image to the larger sizes. I coloured the flowers in with a Promarker and it covered the floral paper perfectly.

I printed 3 layers of the ribbons onto plain white card and coloured them in with colours picked from the main paper. These have been layered with 3D foam. I added the egg to plain cardstock and cut around the shape with my trusty Fiskars scissors. They are small blades and cut right to the end of the tip and I would be lost without them J

The sentiment is a freebie from TLC Creations and I made a little tag and used one of my Queen & Co mini brads. Last but not least I used tons and tonnes of Stickles glitter glue and some Paperchase gems to bling it up. I loved working with this image and it has made a lovely fun card which I may have great difficulty giving away…….

I hope you will pop over to the blog to see the lovely creations on there and please remember that you have until Sunday night to get your entries in for our Colour Your World challenge.
