Digital Two for Tuesday Challenge card

Yeah, Yeah I know it is Wednesday but I did download the image on Tuesday, does that count? The images this week are children from a vintage book that Cora shared with us for the weekly challenge. I chose the little bonnet girl at the beach.
The guest designer this week is Alex and her cards are super cute.
I went for more of a modern color scheme on this card using bright colors and funky dp but I think it worked okay.


My beach baby was colored with copic markers. I added the texture of sand using my copic micro pen and my Sukara stardust glitter pen to add the sparkle usually found on beautiful sand beaches. The water has lapped into the foot prints and under her feet.

I sewed the image to the pink cs and added a green grosgrain ribbon with a pink knot bow to keep with my pink and green theme. I added 3 spots in the upper right corner of the image using my crop-a-dile. I also sewed the dp to the white card base using a zigzag stitch, just a hint if you haven't sewed on cards before: Don't glue your papers together. I just put a short strip of tape in the center of the paper to hold them in place because you don't want the glue or tape to gum up your needle, you won't like the results :(

You should join the Digital Two for Tuesday challenges. You get 2 free vintage images and all you have to do is color. Post your image to your blog or gallery and link back to Digital Two for Tuesday. It is so much fun, go on over and give it a try.

Tomorrow I will have an Artistic Outpost card or two for you.

I finally got access to the KLM digital DT site so I could download some new images so you will see more of them soon.

Okay, I really need to go color, darn the bad luck :)

Catch you later, thanks for stopping by :)
