Playing with Digi's

On Saturday, I found a little quiet time, and decided to print off a couple of digital images to color. Sometimes it is such good therapy. This first card is an image from Little Dog Designs. My DP is from the new Pyrus collection by Basic Grey, and is layered onto Pumpkin Spice card stock. Coloring was done with Copic Markers, with sponging done in Baja Breeze ink by SU! I added copper cording and brads with a popped sentiment form Gina K. Designs. Thought this would make a cute holiday card.
My second card is digital image from Firecracker Designs. The Dp is also from the Pyrus collection by Basic Grey. I used Copics to color and Memento Rich Cocoa for my sponging. My sentiment is an unmounted that I got in a lot, but I am 99% sure it is Art Impressions.

The cattail tops were covered in Crystal Effects. How wild that I found a long abandoned punch of tiny dragonfly's in the back of the closet! I added adhesive pearls and beads, then a button tied with a hemp bow. I did not plan on entering these in any challenges, but I was encouraged to enter my cattail card over at Stamping Sisters In Christ, where this weeks challenge is a "Thank You" card.

Just wanted to share before they head into my stash. Had a super time with my DH at the show, yesterday. Hope to play with some of the new goodies today. Have a great start to your week!

As far as the craft show.... it is hard not to be bad at a stamp show!!! Oh my... Linda and I can tear shows up with all we *want*. Don't tell her, but I still haven't used the glitter I bought at the one in Winston-Salem (that's bad I know)... Must use it this week!!!! Looking forward to seeing your goodies and hearing all about it!
