Digital Tuesday Challenge :-)

I made this card using 2 of the gorgeous images I just won in Wendy's blog candy :-) Wendy is a fabulous artist and has some lovely digi images for sale :-) You can see them here at her online store Digital Delights
The ones I used here are Maggie May and Maggie May background. I coloured her with copics and 3D's her. I highlighted her a little bit ! I still haven't quite got the hang of that yet ! It always looks brill on everyone else's cards and not so good on mine !!
I followed the fab sketch by Jenn on the Digital Tuesday Challenge, the DT have made some superb cards for you to see so go and see em !! :-)

As you can see I made this for a little girl's 1st Holy Communion, the sentiment was printed on my comp :-)

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

Simon Says Let's Craft With Tim :-)

First of all I would like to thank everyone for the fabulous entries for our Animal Challenge :-) We had over 100 entries and both myself and Heidi are donating to animal charities, mine is the Gozo SPCA, the link is on my sidebar Heidi is donating to the Humane Society of Delaware County :-)

We have a fabulous fun challenge for you this week on the Simon Says Challenge :-)
This week we are all getting inky :-) I got absolutely covered making this and would recommend that if you try this wear disposable gloves !! :-) Heidi very generously sent all the Challenge DT a package filled with Tim Holtz goodies :-) It felt like Christmas opening it !! I can't tell you how much we all enjoyed this one, FUN FUN FUN !! Jo's package went on a round the world twice trip and finally arrived at lunch time yesterday ! Just in the nick of time eh !! Phew !!!

Would you believe that this tin started life as a SU hodgepodge hardware tin !! Yeah !! What a transformation eh !!

I used allsorts in the making of this, I started by using alcohol inks in various colours with a little silver mixative and a few drops of blending solution and dabbed this all over using a proper Tim Holts applicator though I did resort to tweezers to push the ink into all the little nooks and crannies :-)
I have loads of unused mirri card which I never use cos it's far too shiny, but it was the right colour so I got some sandpaper and really roughed it up , it looked much better ! :-)

This is a photo of all the products I used

The metal flowers I used were a gift from Dorothy :-) Thanks Dorothy :-)
Everything I used with the exception of Dorothy's flowers are available in the Simon Says Stamp Store
