DSC # 88 Blue & Yellow

Happy Friday ya'll! That's my Southern coming out in me So it's Friday and ya'll know what that's time to show you my Design Team project for Digitally Sweet Challenges! This week's theme for you is Blue & Yellow and the sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps. We got to choose our own image and here's my project:

I made a card this week. I know it's a pretty basic design but I did alot of colourising in Photoshop and with Copics. The whole digi stamp was in black and white but I changed the colour of the text and digitally painted the rose and butterflies. I then used the rose and big butterfly to create matching papers that I printed out as well. I then just edged the papers and stamp with Black Soot Distress Ink and did lots of matting and layers in black and royal blue card. I used a Copic marker to change the colour of the Card Candy and added to the corners. My final touch was a bit of a fail that looks a little better in person is I added Pinflair Glaze to the bubbles in the digi stamp. The glaze absorbed into the paper too much and stained but it is really glossy when you see it live. Ah well.

One thing I am loving and that's my Perfect Layers rulers to created nice even layers. I got the full sized ones so I could use them on bigger projects as well as cards. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Get yourself some if you are "straight line challenged" like I can't cut a straight line to save my life, even with a paper trimmer...even with a guillotine! Someone at one time must have told me to "get bent" and boy I sure did...LOLOLOL.
