Hello and top o' the mornin' to ya!
It's time for another challenge over at Digi Darla's Challenges, and this week's theme for Challenge #52 is "Green Cards."
I look forward to seeing everyone's interpretations! One winner will receive 5 Digi Darla images, and any entries using a DD image get entered into a SECOND drawing for 3 images, so you could conceivably win 8, yes, eight Digi Darla images. Very cool!
My card is using the lovely DD Irish Beauty, which you can find here.
I colored the image with Copics, adding the tiniest speck of glitter to the buckle on the lass' hat. There might be 6 whole glitter flakes, the buckle is so tiny, but one must attend to the details, right? Besides, nothing but nothing is too small to be glittered in my opinion.
The background and edges of the image panel are colored with chalks for that soft, sunny look.
I've dry embossed the two dsp panels with the same embossing folder, but the different patterns give a completely different look.
The four leaf clover was made with four small hearts adhered to a glue dot, then painted with CI paints, striped with a Copic marker for the veins, then painted a bit more on top (with Sage and Evergreen).
The pearl here and on the small tag were pastel green before coloring them with the same Copic marker as that used on the clover.
I used two colors of ribbon plus some linen thread for the embellishment along with a picket fence die cut and the small tag, both the fence and tag of which I colored with more CI paints (Ivory and Sage). I LOVE CI paints for the soft shimmer they give.
And that, lovely readers, is my "green" card today. Thank you for joining me, and please head on over to the Digi Darla challenge and see what the other Design Team have created, then feel free to join us this week. We'd love to see what YOU come up with!
