DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY :: NEW RELEASE :: MARTINI-BRAIDS

I have drawn five new images for the Digistamps 4 Joy store, and the first I’d like to share with you is

MARTINI - BRAIDS

The image is available as jpeg, png and coloured, and here is the card I made (this is the coloured version – my own colouring)



The colouring is using Copics, and a white gel pen



My card is made according to sketch from Let’s Scrap.
I have used the following from my hoarded stash:

white CS card base
blue CS
orange CS
brown CS with strips of unprinted washi tape, then embossed (a NEW technique)



flowers with button centres, tied with twine
peel of sentiment

Here is a little sneak peak of all the cards I made using my own drawn images released today:

  3. That's such a cutie image! I love her braids and you've coloured her so well, I also love your cardstock colour choice, really simple yet eye catching too! And the embossing just adds to the effect, it would be great if you could answer some of the questions on the challenge blog to let us know more about your new technique :)

    Thanks for playing along with DDCC - good luck! :)

    1. I thought my blog post answered those questions ...
      1) Why did you want to try this technique? It's must own technique - I wanted to try SOMETHING DIFFERENT
      2) What has been your experience with it? It needs a little refining - this is a kind of 'prototype'
