Deedee’s Digis Monthly Challenge

Deedee’s monthly challenge this month features a lovely set of digi stamps entitled ‘Thinking Spot’. I have a problem at the moment, because of excessive skin tone blending practice my FS2 Spectrum Noir pen has run dry and I am waiting for a refill bottle to arrive.  As I needed to colour on Sunday evening to unwind after a particularly hectic week I decided to start on the ‘Thinking Spot’ image and managed to finish a card in one afternoon and part of the evening.

Materials used:
Deedee’s Digis: Thinking spot
several greetings stamps
Neenah card
brown and golden brown cor’dinations card
black archival ink
pricking tool and ruler
white square card blank
brown fine line pen

Having printed out the image I wanted to use I coloured it in with Spectrum Noir pens, trimmed and pricked around the edge. I cut two mats from the cor’dinations card and pricked around the edge of them also. With the brown pen joined up the holes to make faux stitching then mounted the image and two mats onto the front of the card blank. I used parts of several greetings stamps from the same collection to stamp ‘just thinking’ on the sign and ‘happy birthday’ at the bottom.

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    I wish that all my little crafting problems resulted in something as wonderful as this! Beautiful card, Pippa! Your coloring is fantastic, and I really like how you used the stitchy patches for the background. So glad you were able to join us at Deedee’s Digis again this month, and I look forward to seeing more of your fabulous creations!
