Digital Images.. my first to share and others

My first digital image... dear friend bear

My son's first image.. kid krayon

and my grand daugher's first image... sox monkey

My family has some artistic talent.
We thought it would be fun
to create some our own digital images
so I could make some cards.
For now it's a family project that is fun.
It could be more but that would be in the future.
Copic colouring is addictive.
Even my mom is now colouring and
making cards at age 79. She loves it as much
as I do... she has no interest in layouts just cards and
especially copic colouring.
I introduced her to this while she spent
time with me in Florida for two weeks.
That's all it took. Below although it is a small image are
some of my mom's cards. She is doing fabulous.

Some of my dear friends who use digital images and copics are going to be adding their cards with my images... hope you enjoy them. Comments will be welcomed.

Delightful Sketches

The card was made using the sketch from Delightful Sketches

A copic coloured image sets this card off with
lots of paper layering, some corrigated paper,
ribbons and bows, a flower,
embossing background, a button and sentiment.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday sponsored by Prairie Fairy Designs

sponsored by Prairie Fairy Designs .
I used one of Prairie Fairy Images and the
Sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday to
make this great card... the fairy is precious.
I loved working with varigated paper
and gold, black n white.

Sketchy Saturday May 22, 2010 & altered layout

Just got the news that I won $ towards digital images.

I ordered some fabulous new digital images...

from Michelle Perkett. Thanks for the great challenge

and I do plan to play along again.

Michelle Perkett Studios has a challenge to use ribbon/lace and circles.. and one of her images.

I had just done this with a little additions I added a lace border, circle lace flower with gem stone and a ribbon bow... and there are circle buttons... and the image is one of Michelle's.

I thought it would be fun to share with her a layout instead of a card.

Simply Scrapping Sketchy Saturday. This layout was fun. Using these photos was perfect to use the freebie image from Michelle... bear in hands. Lots of layers, stitching, all around punched borders, and lots of journaling around outer 3 edges.

Also this week we had Colour Challenge Thursday.

Rolled Paper Technique

I made another card using rolled paper technique and the image is from Shelly's Images "ROOSTER"

This is part of my Technique Tuesday as DT leader and my flower video tutorial was shared with all her members too.
I used my sample layout that had both techniques on one layout.

I would love to see what you can do with both these techniques and share with me on the inlink at Shelly's Images.
Here's to a scrappy day and a friendly reminder tomorrow I have Terrifically Thrilling Thursday with a great idea to share with you. Below Sneak Peak.

Technique Tuesday with Shelly's Images

Good morning.. today is my DT lead at Shelly's Images for Technique Tuesday.
All these new roles that allow me free rein to display my ideas. It is fantastic but at the same time lots of responsibilities to come up with something all you amazing scrappers want to see. I thought I'd share today a new technique so simple but new to me.... and again I shared my flower video tutorial.

Also if I almost forget Terrifically Thrilling Thursday ... I plan something fun and special.. hope you can join me then too.
