DU2DS Challenge 45 - Shaped Card


Hi everyone, another fortnight gone by and the start of another challenge on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp. This time our theme is a shaped card and we have some gorgeous inspiration from my DT friends so we hope you can join us. I've made a swing/flip flop card which is a great shape but it's very hard to photograph :D and I've used a sweet 'Pure Innocence' digi image coloured with copic and promarkers. After the card was cut I stamped with a Viva background stamp and white ink, added a white panel which is stamped with two Viva flower stamps in distress ink then finished off with felt flowers and pearls. Thanks as always for your lovely comments, they're always appreciated. Have a good Friday.

Hi Chris, thank you for your lovley comments, they always mean so much to me. The camera I use is a Panasonic Lumix FZ18 I did toy with the idea of getting an SLR but really wanted something quick & easy to use, I take nearly all my pics on the "intellegant auto" setting, so it's fairly user friendly!
Perhaps you could help me, Your water-colouring with distress inks is always amazing. What paper do you use as I just got some waterford 300g Not surface & it's really not happening - do you use smooth & if so where do you get it from.
Sorry for the long comment
