My First Card Challenges....

So my first few challenges have meant colour...first to design an all black and white card with only colour in the image....and from my favourite digi artist Dustin Pike! I hope I get to win some of his stamps :)
I'm not thrilled with the results...but I don't have a good copic black yet so had to use watercolours...and the flash on the camera washes it out a little...live and learn.


The second challenge was for a pink card....I immediately thought of the piggie I got from a children's artist...but having made it, Steve wondered who would want to get a card with a pig on the front...so I tried one with a butterfly for valentine's day...which do you like better??

Finally, I made the card for a friend of an image I had coloured e-ons ago but hadn't done anything with yet...it is my favourite one...too bad no challenges for this one ....yet!

Updating the blog...

Okay...so I did it!  I jumped into this world of blogging ....and discovered our family already had one set up!  So, I've officially snatched it up from my hubby to post my new found love...digital stamping !! I'm attempting to enter the world of some fabulous artists and throw my creations out there to see what happens.  I'm in now way an "artiste"...but have been having fun colouring with my copics and being challenged by some websites....the only problem is, once you finish a creation and want to enter it in contests (or "challenges" as they are called) you need to link it to something....thus the blog! So, let's see if this works.  Thanks for checking in. New creations to be posted soon...
