Digi Stamping

Hi there. Last week at Card Patterns we were each sent a Digi Stamp to use with Michelle's sketch. To my knowledge Digi stamping has not hit New Zealand yet??? I could be wrong, I have done an Internet search but it has turned up no NZ digi stamps site. Please correct me if I'm off track here! Anyway Michelle sent me this image ....

My first thought was ARrrrrrrrrr......... HELP!!!
...but then the more I looked at this image the more I liked it! I mean to say, she really is so sweet isn't she. So I pushed aside the panic, printed her out and got to work!
I have printed out the image three times in fact. Once on green - for the leaf, and again in pink, for the togs, which I ended up cutting out and covering with glitter.

Here is Michelle's sketch...

...and here is the card I made...

This lovely Digi stamp had such a tropical feel about it that I just had to add the brilliant colours of the tropics, and of course a flower to match!

This digi stamp, and all of the other gorgeous Digi stamps used by the rest of the Card Pattern's Design Team were kindly supplied to us from the Digi Shack do be sure to check them out.

My challenge to you all is to create a card using Michelle's sketch. Remember to leave a link over at Card patterns to your take on the sketch. The winner from this challenge will be showcased on #17 as Guest Designer. You also will be in with a chance to win two digi stamps of your choice from The Digi Shack!!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
