Digital Ink Co. New Challenge

Hi folks.

Phew, just got the shopping in for another week - GOD I HATE shopping!! Unless of course it is for crafty stuff! LOL

So I have grabbed me a coffee, so I can sit here and post this for you. As it is Monday, it is time for a new challenge at Digital Ink Co. and also a notice of some more goodies! Yeay! If you sign up for the DI-Co newsletter you get a FREE image every month!! Cooool or what!

This week's challenge is a recipe - yum! You need to use some fabric, a bow, a button and glitter for your creations this time. Smacks of Christmas to me, so that's what I chose to do. We all got to play with an image by Julie from Jules' Junk at the Digital Ink Co Shop. I played with this lovely doggie image by colouring with my watercolour pencils, and layering up with the usual foam pads.

For the fabric, sorry I don't do sewing any more, it hurts the fingers too much!! So I opted to be sneaky and use some fabric flowers, with a bit of metallic ribbon curled into twirly bits. I fastened a little button to it with some thread - fiddly or what! I used some matching ribbon for the big bow in the top corner, then used some glistening snow glitter paint here and there for the glitter bit. Papers by Tinker & Co.

Right then, now I need to put the shopping away - ugh! Get yourself over to Digital Ink Co Challenge Blog and take a lookey at the lovely DT's creations for some more inspiration, and get cookin' - I mean creating!

Great job on the card! Love all the dimension the image has. Love the non traditional purple for Christmas too. : )

Love the 'bling' and as always, your layering is awesome. I can't get it, lol. I'm blaming it on the foam glue squares. I think I'm going to google UTube to see how you gals do it :-). I really love the purple background. Makes the red pop & the brown really stand out. Love it.
