Woohoo, the uber-amazing and fantastically talented illustrator Crissy Armstrong has a brand new bi-weekly challenge blog called Sundays with Crissy. A new challenge is posted every second Sunday so check it out and get inky.
She is also looking for some crafters to become part of her DT. The DT Call runs until midnight EST tomorrow, April 30. Details for the DT Call are here.
Here's my submission, using this adorable Teddy Bear-ing Gifts digi image, illustrated by none other than Crissy. You have to checkout her line-up of digis at Squigglefly and Whimsy. Her illustrations have been made not only into digis but stamps as well. Checkout Crissy's blog for more details but I warn you, get comfy cause you won't be going anywhere for a while. AND you know as I've already mentioned in previous posts that you'll be drooling over both her wonderful art and stunning colouring.
I like to experiment with my Copics and tried a few new techniques ~ well new to me ~ with this card. To add texture to the teddy, I used the 'nasty rag' technique and I also tried colouring 'transparent' balloons. My daughters gave their stamp of approval on these new techniques and have asked for a demonstration, with their own digis of course ~ lol. Copic colours used: Blender, B0000, B41, B52, B91, BV0000, BV000, BV01, BV11, BV13, E21, E25, E34, E41, E42, E43, E53, E55, E59, R20, RV00, RV09, RV13, RV14, RV21, YR15, YR20 & V17.
Flowers and all rhinestone embellies are from my stash. The gorgeous cupcake charm is from The Townscrapper and I'll have to go shopping again soon as Phebe has a wonderful selection of charms. The pearl brads in the centres of the flowers are from The Hobby House. The fabulous star pin, mesh ribbon and floral spacers are from Bunny-Zoe Crafts.
