It's a new thing

New things are happening over at Designed2Delight!  Faith is having a new monthly reveal of all her new digital images for the month. Please check out her blog on the 20th of every month for the monthly reveal. There will be a challenge each time with the chance to win a free image too!

And to celebrate and introduce you to all the designers for Designed2Delight, we are having a Blog Hop! I'm glad you hung in there and hopped over to my little ole blog. (yeah, I'm in the south!)

Let me show you my first card:
I chose Designed2Delight's 'Birdie's Valentine'.

I used Microsoft Word to insert the image, resize it, copy it over & over and to turn the image various ways.  I guess i could have also inverted it to a mirror image, but I didn't think of that!! (maybe next time...)

This is on watercolor paper and I used Derwent watercolor pencils and a water brush to color the images.
For the letters, I used my wooden letter set by Stampabilities that I picked up recently for half price. (love that!)

I did a sloppy ink job on the edges of the letters to give them character.  Gives it that nice home-made touch, don't ya think?!

Now for card number 2:

Isn't he a happy snowman? He is Designed2Delight's 'Rainbow Snowman'. I colored him with my Prismacolor pencils and popped him up on top of a stamped Hero Arts cloudy sky background.

And I gave him a polka-dot butterfly for company.

Thanks so much for participating in our blog hop. From here please go on to Michele H. and see her great creations! Also don't forget to go to Designed2Delight and get in on the new challenge. See ya there!!
