They actually let me pick the current challenge at Can You Digi It?, and I picked the pretty purple images put into this lovely inspiration board by our fearless leader Michelle:
The challenge is called "Purple Please. I made my creation using the new LilyPink Designs Christmas Baubles.
I printed the grouped image out two times- once for the main panel and once for the full ornament grouping. I also printed out a single ornament with the sentiment. For my papers, I used StripedElephants digi paper. This was the first time I digitally layered two papers. I masked the green paper and sponged around it so it would like I had two seperate layers. This technique is soo great and opens up a world of possibilities including saving paper, saving ink, saving space..... Fun, fun, fun!!!
I used Copic Markers and Spica pens to color my image (I have been doing a CopicMe workshop and I love it!!!!!).
The gems on the bottom of my card are Sparklets from KaiserCraft and they are available from Can You Digi It? too. In the CopicMe workshop I learned that Copics work on a lot of things so I tried them on the clear Sparklets, and I was able to make them match my colors exactly - how cool is that!!!!
You don't have to use a CYDI? image to enter the challenge (although we would love it if you would and there are a number of free images in the store if you just want to play with one). Since this is the first challenge I actually designed, I am hoping you will join us!
