My first card as a Digi Doodle Best Design Team member!!!

How excited have I been to share this news with you all. Judy is the owner of Digi Doodle Store and she put out a DT call recently for which I applied. I have been picked to join the Digi Doodle Best Design Team along with these lovely ladies. Please visit their wonderful blogs and see what they have been up to.

Judy has a gorgeous collection of designs in her store so please hop over to the Digi Doodle Store and take look. There is a fantastic inspirations gallery.

There will be a new Digi Doodle challenge blog and here is a date for your diary April 1st is the date of our first challenge

I have made an easel card and a matching keyring as an Easter gift for my childrens teachers. I love this Iris image. I resized the image to 7 cm by 13cm and I added a verse from John 11:25,26 to make it relevant to Easter. You could put a sympathy greeting or a Happy Birthday greeting over the top if you wish. This image is so versitile.

I have made two projects to show you how versitile the image is. I have made a shrink plastic keyring and an Easel card.

I printed the image out onto photocopy paper that is 120gram in weight.

To make the keyring I firstly punched a hole in the corner of a piece of frosted shrink plastic.

I then used masking tape to adhere the frosted shrink plastic to the image that I printed. I traced over it with a black pen. However I did not trace the writing at this point.

I then coloured in the image and background with promarkers. Once I had coloured the image I traced over the verse.

I then shrunk the plastic with a heat gun. I added my keyring and I added some ribbon to make it more funky.

For my card I used the same image that I had traced over. So this is really a cost effective gift and card.

I used the same colour promarkers to colour the image. As you can see they become much darker once you shrink the shrink plastic.

I used H2O's to colour in the background on the card. I then added some Shabby green distress ink and a stamped border.

I used K&co, papermania and MME papers. I made an easel card and added a bouquet of irises and some ribbon to finsh off my card.

This angle shows the glimmer you get with the H2O's.
