This is the last week to participate in the July Digi of the Month challenge. The August set is ready and waiting to send to anyone who participates by the deadline (Sunday, 2 August), so don't miss out!
Edit: My error: that should have read Sunday, 3 August. Thanks Pippa for catching this boo-boo!
This cute digi can be found right here. The set has a pre-colored image (fast card making, let me tell you & I don't work fast), line art for choosing your own colors and some very nice sentiments too. Remember that all these digi images can be resized to fit whatever size you may need for a particular card motif.
Here's what I did with Daniel's Tree:
(2)Die cut the image with a S/B Label 1. Created a faux mat by cutting the outside edge of the die, using paper from a Colorbok Water Color theme pack (my $5 Walmart find - 12x12 sheets in a paper pad). I've seen Daniel's Tree used by some of the other DT members and thought he was just the cutest guy, with a rather foolish look about him. Is he lost or what? (I've seen this look on DH's face on some of our trips...usually after we've driven miles out of our way, so maybe that's why this image appealed to me so much!). With those outstretched wings, I imagine that Daniel is saying "Ok, now where do I go with this tree?".
(3)Did a bit of shading with copics, added some spica on the scarf colors, his purple headband and his little boots. Some Sakura Silver Star on the snow, and some Stickles snow falling. Also used a smaller Label 1 to remove the center portion of the mat.
(4) papers are from 6x6 BoBunny Mistletoe Collection (top panel) and American Crafts Peppermint Express (bottom panel).
(5)S/B In Spades border die from a DCWV 6x6 glitter pack.
(6) Memory Box stocking die - cut 2 shapes from 2 colors-same glitter pack. Clear rhinestones for a bit of bling; used part of one of the sentiments, which was shaded with just a tiny bit of DI Dusty Concord.
Easy Peasy, and the hardest part was selecting papers to make Daniel happy as he finds his way home. Hope you'll enjoy the card, and perhaps join in the fun at DeeDee's July Challenge of the month.
