All Dressed Up for Christmas - Inspiration Destination #96

Hello everyone. My DT post this week at the fabulous Inspiration Destination Challenge Blog is now live. Hop on over to check out what other DT members have created this week.

Our sponsor for this week is All Dressed Up.

The stamp I'm using is: All Dressed Up for Christmas which you can find here.

I've coloured the image with my Spectrum Aqua markers (I just love 'em!) and fussy cut it. And since it's a Christmas stamp, I've added loads of glitter to the fairy wings, the gift ribbons and blobs of colourful glitter to the Christmas tree and stars. I've layered the image with Christmas-y stuff (pattern papers and message).

Hope you guys like it and I would love to hear what you think.

After Party madness - Inspiration Destination #95

My 2nd DT project this week on Inspiration Destination is for Kenny K stamps.

I've created a mixed media, shaker tag using the digi stamp 'After Party' which can be found here.

Since it's a fun stamp, I wanted to try something different. First of all, I coloured the digi stamp using my Spectrum Aqua markers (I just love these!). I then created a tag, stuck a contrasting colour pattern paper and started assembling the shaker elements. I covered the corners with crackle paste and highlighted everything with gold, green, blue and pink colours. I added some glitter here and there to tie up the whole tag. I simply love how the cracks show (some very fine and some deep and big ones).

If you liked my tag, please leave some feedback and encourage me to do better :). More such yumm posts coming up soon.

Summer Love... Kidz Daisy - Inspiration Destination #95

Hello everyone. First of all, a good news. I'm so happy to share with you that I am one of the DT members at a fabulous blog called Inspiration Destination Challenge Blog. It's a wonderful blog with a very talented DT group. I'm so honoured to be a part of this amazing 'Dream Team'.

This is my very first DT project and blog post for Challenge No. 95: Always Anything Goes. Our wonderful sponsor for this week is:

The image that I worked with for this challenge is: Bug Kidz Daisy, which you can find here.

The moment I saw this image, I knew I wanted to make a colourful, vibrant and fun card. The image is so chirpy and innocent that I knew it had to be filled with colours. This is also the first time I have used my Spectrum Noir Aqua markers (colours from Primary and Nature sets used) and I completely loved how the colouring turned out. I've distressed the edges of the base green panel on which my digi image is stuck to give it a nice raw effect to break the monotony of 'kewtness'. I've carried the same effect for my prime sentiment (Something Special for you) to balance the look.

I've colour co-ordinated the background with the stamp colours and added fun elements and sentiments to spruce up the card and lend a cohesiveness. I'm completely in love with these colours.

I hope you liked my card and would love it if you could leave your feedback below.
