Sneak Peek of ther new Doodle Palace Digi images :-)

DareU2Digi Stamp Challenge

Sketch Saturday Challenge

I made these cards using soon to be released digi images from Doodle Palace
The monkeys on the see saw and the mice images will be released for sale next Tuesday 2nd June :-) Aren't they gorgeous !! :-)

Both cards were made following the fab sketches on the DareU2 Digi Stamp and the Saturday Sketch challenges. I must admit I did struggle with the Saturday Sketch :-) It is a fabby sketch and I wanted to use that image and the basic grey paper but I just couldn't get the oval shape to look right !! I think it's because I really didn't want to cover up so much of the gorgeous paper so I hope you accept my compromise :-) I have a pile of oval shapes in all different colours and papers that I tried !!! :-(
I coloured the monkeys with prisma pencils and blended with odourless spirit, I am still a novice on these pencils and have tended to stick to my copics but I do think they make furry animals more furry looking :-) The mice I coloured with copics and for some reason when the copics dried they were spotty !! I am still trying to work out which is the best card to use with digi images :-) so it's a bit trial and error at the moment,,,

I would also like to with the Saturday Sketch Challenge a very happy 1st birthday :-) All the Design team have blog candy on their blogs so you need to make a card and visit everyone :-) What a fun idea !! :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Gorgeous cards Lorraine and those mice are adorable, as soon as they go on sale I'll have to have them :). Wonderful colouring and I agree with you about the prismas and colouring animals, they do seem to work so well for that. I've found that Bristol Board works really well in my printer for my digi images, it's really good for both copics and prismas as it has a really smooth surface, not sure if you've tried it? Glad you could join us at DU2DS this week. Chris :)

Fantastic card Lorraine, love your digi image and DP and what a great take on the sketch! Thanks for playing along with us at DU2DS this week :) Donna x

Two challenges very close to my heart!! You've done a great job with them both. I sometimes use frames instead of solid shapes when following sketches too. Background papers are too pretty to cover up.
