Boy has it been hot lately and, if the weather forecast is to be believed, set to continue that way for August. Good news for those of us going on holiday in the UK this summer.
So in the heat what better way to keep cool than to find a shady craftroom and a digi penguin to play with. I am only just beginning to explore the world of digi stamps but with space becoming more of an issue as we consider what happens when my husband retires and we have to leave the vicarage, this could be the answer. The kit I have used came from Deedee’s Digis and is the one for the July challenge. If you enter the challenge you automatically get sent the kit for the next month’s challenge free! This is my first attempt so it will be interesting to see how it all works.
I do have a bit of a problem, the same one as for Hunkydory Kits, somehow it does seem a bit of a cheat using just an image. The kit does come with just the line drawing so that you can colour your own but I ran out of time! Maybe next time I will do some colouring. This time I eased my uneasiness by adding some stamped elements!
Deedee’s Digi Kit – So Cool
Grey, yellow and orange Spectrum Noir Pencils
Black and orange card
Papermania black and white spotty paper
Shrink plastic (frosted)
Ice cube, glass and cocktail umbrella stamps from Dimension/Nina
I printed out the greeting once and the penguin image four times, used one image as the base and then used the remaining three to 3d decoupage it. I used the grey pencils to add some shadow under the bath. Using the stamps I made the glass from shrink plastic and the row of ice cubes from card and coloured them with the pencils. I mat and layered the penguin and the greeting then stuck all my elements to the front of an A5 card blank.
In the end I quite enjoyed myself with this so I might even have a go next month!
Thanks for popping in. Take care.
I would like to enter this card into Deedee’s Digi of the Month Challenge
