A DELICIOUS FREEBIE FOR JULY FROM DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY


Margy has designed a fabulous and delicious looking July freebie from Digistamps 4 Joy that will be available from tomorrow.The image is called Strawberries & Cream and Margy created a beautiful card with it:



Doesn't that look appetizing?

I decided to dip my strawberries in some glossy melted chocolate:


The elements on my card were arranged according to the sketch at The Outlawz, and for the rest, here is what I did:
Coral coloured CS with a white core was embossed and lightly sanded to add the faux shininess to the hearts and then it was matted onto red CS.
An X-cut die was used to cute and create the red heart gem centred flower, cut out by hand, then matted onto white CS which was also hand cut.
Three heart gems were added in the bottom right hand corner.
The image was printed onto white CS and coloured using my new sets of Spectrum Noir markers I received in the mail yesterday. I added Glossy Accents to make the chocolate positively YUMMY looking and to show the condensation on the bowl. Perhaps that shows up better in the photograph above.

Now the image is not available yet, but it will be tomorrow ... and it is available for ONLY 2 days on our blog, after which it goes into the store. So be prepared for this release!!!


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
THE OUTLAWZ, SKETCH CHALLENGE, 4 JULY (where I flipped the sketch) 

 
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY, 'ANYTHING GOES' - + I used Glossy Accents
CRAFT YOUR PASSION, #117, 'CHILLIN & GRILLIN' (my card is the chillin' part,
 showing a fabulous bowl of chilled strawberries dipped in chocolate)

I would LOVE to see what you create with the Strawberries and Cream image.

Don't forget that it will be up on the blog tomorrow!
