DU2DS Challenge 24 - No squares allowed

Hi everyone, a new challenge on DU2DS today and this time our dare is no squares allowed, a shaped card which must include a digi image. I've rounded off the corner on my card to give me a new shape and then cut card to fit from Core'dinations whitewashed card. I've used the reverse side for the bottom layer and the whitewashed side for the upper layer. This piece has been embossed with the distressed stripes CB embossing folder and sanded so that I can also enter the card into the Cuttlebug Challenges where the theme this week is Halloween and you also have to scraplift from one of the designers cards. I've chosen June's card, I liked how she used the distressed stripes eb folder so I've taken inspiration from that and June has promised extra credit for using her card ROFL, so hopefully some brownie points too?

I've used this gorgeous digi image 'Maddie and Mel's pumpkin fun' by my sweet and supportive blog friend Crissy who is the most talented artist. I'm really happy for her that she has all these great new ventures, I love everything she draws. It's brilliant that she's now doing digital too for Squiggle Fly and also lots of new rubber stamps for Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and Bunny Zoe's Crafts new stamp line Wags 'n Whiskers stamps.

Oh, about the card :D, I've coloured the puppies with copics and cut them out, curved and attached with gel glue. The Boo sentiment and the cobweb were cut on the bug and then smeared with stickles. Added the dotty ribbons and some doodling to finish. Well I hope you aren't seeing spots now, it's a bit dot mad :D! Have a good Friday, nearly the weekend!! TFL.

Oh Chris! I am blushing! You can probably see the red glow in the sky from all the way across the pond! lol I am so touched to see your coloration to one of my images, it just astounds me! You work magic with Copics, wow. The pumpkin is simply glowing, as are the pup's cheeks! I love the dorsal line on the one doggie, that is a realistic touch, wow! And the shape is just so original! The dots are so cute, as I love polka dots so much, it is a favorite of mine. This is such a great creation Chris!!!
Thanks for saying the sweetest things about my artistic ventures and our friendship! Thanks for adding the links too. You're the best!
Love you! xo

June Houck said...

I am laughing so hard I can hardly type! I thought you were kidding when you left me a comment about getting inspiration from me. You are a sweet friend, Chris.

The first thing I noticed about the card is the polka dots (I love polka dots!) and the cool sparkly spider web. Then I noticed the top of the pumpkin on one puppie's head...so CUTE!

You made my day; I can't stop smiling!
