DS4J Art Deco Beauty

March 27, 2016 Comments off

Hello. It has been a long time since I posted. I was focusing on my other blog where I post information as an Independent Consultant for Close To My Heart. I hope to find time in my day to create things to share on both blogs. Wish me luck.

Happy Easter. Instead of having dinner with family I stayed home because I came down with a cold and did not want everyone exposed to my germs. Despite not sleeping well last night – I think I saw every hour on the clock overnight – I am forcing myself to stay busy and awake with the hope I will sleep much better tonight.

I am unsure how many of you use digital stamps; I have used them some over the past few years. In 2014 I participated in a progressive Christmas challenge by Digistamps4Joy (DS4J) and followed them on Facebook. Recently DS4J created a Facebook Group and started a new progressive freebie challenge (PFC) and the butterfly image below, named Art Deco Beauty, was the freebie to get use started. If you hurry and request to join the Facebook Group you can download the image and participate in the PFC with us.

I used the following materials to create the card: Art Deco Beauty from Digistamps4Joy printed on Georgia Pacific white cardstock. The image was colored using Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils (Canary Yellow, Orange Yellow, Light Orange, Scarlet Lake, Brown Ochre). I fussy cut the image using a craft knife and glass mat.

The pre-cut and scored card base is 6.5″ high and 5″ wide. I covered the card with brown cardstock from my stash embossed with the CTMH Woodgrain Embossing Folder (Z1996). The sentiment is from the My Acrylix® Balloon Wishes stamp set (D1667) and was stamped with a Black Memento™ Ink Pad (Z899). I used green cardstock from my stash and die cut it using the Sweetpea Die from Tattered Lace Magazine Issue 18.

I hope you think I used the image in a pleasing way. Thanks for visiting my blog today.
