DIGISTANPS 4 JOY :: NEW RELEASE :: MARTINI-BEACH BRIDE

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

MARTINI - BEACH BRIDE

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:

blue CS card base
white CS mat
blue/white printed DP
blue CS mat
doiley, embellished with sewn on sequins, beads, flatback pearls and a satin  ribbon bow:


 the sentiment is a peel-off

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

  2. I know, Paper Playful tell players for OurCreativeCorner's challenge to use "Something New" - which sadly is exactly the opposite from what we want our players to do (and which we really explain very clearly in our challenge post by the way)...we want to see some of your long hoarded items that you haven't been using before used on your makes.

    Your colouring is awesome and the card is really gorgeous! Thanks for joining (although we cannot count your entry in :(

    Hugs,

    1. I am sorry you decided that, as my post reads "I have used the following from my hoarded stash" and "The doiley is from a new pack i broke open for this card", not " I bought a new pack of doileys for my card" . I will remove my entry.

  3. If I misunderstood the "new pack", just ignore (and delete) my previous (and this) comment... is the pack newly bought or just newly opened? As we had some improper entries due to Paper Playful's mistake I first assumed you followed their instructions...seeing your second entry being proper I rethought and decided to ask you...before I can finally leave a positive comment on this make;) - maybe you could state more clearly in your post if the doiley package was a hoarded not yet opened item or a really newly bought. Thank you for your patience and understanding ;)

    1. I read every challenge post AND the challenge rules before I enter my link. I have already deleted my entry as I don't like a cloud of uncertainty hanging over my head. My intentions were honourable and upright and not entering this card in the challenge makes me feel better.

      (btw : the pack of doilies was purchased about 5 years ago and never opened)
