Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Challenge #1

A new challenge blog was recently born and its first challenge was posted this Friday. May they have many many challenges for us in the weeks, months and years to come. Their Design Team is filled to the brim with talented and creative crafters - believe me, I've checked each and everyone's blog and was enchanted with their creations.
One of the co-founders and DT members is my very talented friend Chris [ do yourself a favour and go see her digi stamps, I'm sure you'll find something in there for your taste. :D ]

The challenges on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp require the participants to use (duh!) digi stamps on their cards and also digi papers but this one is not compulsory.

For this Friday's challenge - #1 - the sketch was made by Chris and it looks like this...

The digi stamp I've used on my card comes from Chris too (I love the girl and she's one of my crafting heroes).

DPs are from Basic Grey - the Boxer collection
Sentiment stamp: Whiff of Joy

I've used this digi stamp before, coloured approx. the same and also using the same background paper. I liked the combination :D ---> if you're curious, you can see my other card somewhere in this post.

I printed the image two times, coloured with watercolours and cut out a few petals which I layered with foam dots. I never know how to take a photo that would make the small layered pieces to be obvious. :)

It was fun working on this card and I am looking forward to more Dare U 2 Digi Stamp challenges. I think digi stamps are very 'trendy' and possibly the stamps of the future.

** Speaking of digi stamps... have you seen Mel's easter bunnies? They're so cute, cute, cute and for FREE ;) **

Thank you for looking.

Buna, Mada, sper ca esti bine si ca te-ai mai odihnit!
Frumoase felicitari ai facut, de cand n-am mai trecut eu pe-aici! Trandafirii arata foarte bine si grozava idee ai avut cu efectul tridimensional.
Te pup si iti doresc o zi buna.

Absolutely STUNNING card.

Chris said...

I love you too darling Mada and it was so wonderful to speak to you last week. We had such a lovely chat, it felt like we've been friends forever and it made me smile all evening. Your card is perfection, I really love the combination of colours with the BG paper, I agree how it works so well and your water colouring is so beautiful, great shading, you've made the roses look so real. Gorgeous design and a lovely sentiment too. Thank you for all the links, I'll be needing to pay you advertising commission soon LOL, but seriously, you know how much I appreciate it. Hope all is well with you this week and they're not working you too hard but of course I'm sure they are. Hope you get a bit of relaxing time and a bit of crafting time. Big hugs to you my friend, Chris xxx
