Soooo excited!!!!


Ooh I'm so excited to be able to tell you my news today - the lovely Sally-Ann at Digistamp Boutique has asked me to be a Guest Designer for the next few months!!!  Any regular followers of my blog will probably have noticed my slight obsession with DSB images... I think I own almost every image lol!  Honestly I can't put into words quite how excited I've been since I got the email from Sally-Ann... hubby thinks I'm bonkers of course, they don't get it do they?

So here's a card made with one of the fabby DSB images, this one is available here.  I've coloured this little cutie with promarkers, with koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador for a little glow around the outside of the image.  The bathtub is paper pieced, shaped slightly with an embossing tool and then covered in glossy accents.  I've also layered up the bow and some of the bubbles in the same way (although I didn't gloss the bow).  Used nestie circles and blossom dies to cut out and mount the image.  The papers are Dovecraft, with coredinations cardstock, and I printed the sentiments directly onto the paper (after a lot of faffing around trying to get it right!).  Finished with lots of little punched flowers (x-cut punch) and some viva pearl dots in the centres... my 'pearls' aren't very good, I've still not got the hang of the viva pearl pen!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I'll be back later to announce my candy winners... and yippee it's back to school tomorrow!!!  Oh I feel like such a mean mummy being so pleased, but I can't wait to get back into the usual routines :o)

What a lovely card Lisa, and a fab image. I love the way you have put it all together and the text is lovely too. She's a very lucky little lady to receive such a lovely card.

Congratulations on the DT post. Well done! You deserve it and you've worked hard for it. Husbands will never understand anything to do with crafting, mine still looks at me like I am an alien from another planet everytime I get some new ribbon or some lovely papers! LOL Ha ha ha xxx
