Addicted to Stamps and More #116

Good morning

Well, here we are, back around to Wednesday again which means that Addicted to Stamps and More has a brand new challenge for you.  And we have an easy peasy one for you this time which is...

Anything Goes!
Go ahead and create using anything you like, we'd love you to share it with us!

Our sponsor this week is Rick St Dennis and the prize being offered to our winner is 3 digis!

Here's my DT card using one of our sponsor's images...

Halloween cards are something I very rarely make and I felt a little out of my comfort zone making this one but on this occasion I thought I'd have a go at colouring this fab little image.  I printed off the digi and coloured it using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  Not the best colouring, I really need to build up my collection to give me more shading options!  This was then die cut with a rectangle die and framed with some thick green vellum.  I chose a black card base and stamped some silver stars on one side and then used a silver gelly roll pen to create the vertical line.  I embossed the sentiment in silver on purple cardstock and then had a play with my new bow die in orange to echo the orange bow ties in the image.  I used some dotty embossed card for this to add a bit of interest.  After some popping up on 3D foam my card was finished.

Materials used:

  • Digi Image: Rick St Dennis - Flying High
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Happy Days and Many Thanks
  • Ink: VersaMark; Versa Color - Silver
  • Embossing Powder: Rubber Stampede - Silver
  • Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Rectangles Large; Frantic Stamper - Small Solid Bow
