Tiddly Inks DT Call!

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

I'm finally back to blogging! This has been a busy month for me, but August always is, with school starting again. But, I just HAD to get back in the groove because Tiddly Inks is having a DT Call! I took a DT break after Flourishes closed up shop, but Christy's images are so cute, I decided to throw my proverbial hat in the ring and see what happens. ;)
I just love images with little girls and their books. It always makes me think of my DD. This digital image, called School Girl, really is cute as a button, isn't she? I printed the image on Copic x-Press paper. She was so much fun to color with Copics, and I added some dots to her dress with a white paint marker. The layout came from the Viva la Verve August 2014 Week 1 sketch, and I followed their color challenge, too. The flowers and sentiment are Verve images that I colored, then fussy cut and rounded with a stylus. The floral strip on the gray dp is Washi tape, and you can't see it in the photo, but I used a clear Spica pen on the flower for a little sparkle.
On the inside, I used PTI dies to cut a few dp buttons, to coordinate with the sentiment on the front of the card. 

Well, I'm down to the wire on the DT Call, so I better pop over and get this baby entered! Thanks for stopping by today, and enjoy the rest of your week!
