Designed2Delight Blog Hop

Hi! Maybe you have hopped over here from Pat's blog, or maybe you have popped in from elsewhere, but either way, Welcome!

Today is Designed2Delight's March Reveal day with all the new images for the month being revealed. In honor of that we are having a blog hop to show off some of the new digital images. Some blogs will be giving away a prize...could mine be one of them?!  I'll be giving away one of the new images, so leave me a message and you will be in the drawing for it!

Also, for 3 days all the new images are 20% off!  Great deal!

My first card is the image called 'Drenched'.  I've felt this way before!  I used to live in Houston, and  boy can it pour there!!

Designed2Delight offers images in three file styles, one of which is the white-filled.  This opens up lots of creative possibilities that the transparent files do not offer.

I used one of the transparent sentiments of the set and copied it multiple times across the background.  I used the white-filled image on top, and since I used the white-filled image,  the writing doesn't show through.  Love that!!  

For my second reveal card, I used 'Ladybugs'. I first picked out an adorable paper by My Mind's Eye 'Lime Twist' that seemed to have a similar look to the Ladybug image.

The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and I added pearls to the ladybug heads.  Also added a butterfly from the coordinating paper.

Well, that's it for my part of the month's reveal. Please hop on over to Kathy C's blog for some darling projects!

Thanks for hopping by!

Designed2Delight Spring Chicks

Oh, I can't wait for Spring!  Some days it seems like Spring already and then other days we are back to dreary winter. All the plants and trees are thoroughly confused.

To brighten my mood til Spring actually gets here, I've been working on Spring cards.
This is Designed2Delight's Spring Chicks. I think they are the cutest chickies!

I water-colored the image with Ranger Distress inks. I'm not crazy about my coloring of the butterfly because he is so bright, he seems to be stealing the spotlight.

I followed a sketch I found on Catch the Bug right here. I turned the sketch on its side to better fit the size of the image. The sketch was just the inspiration I needed to make this card!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Stamp Man - Colours of Spring / Easter
2 Sisters - Anything goes
Send a Smile for Kids - Spring/Easter for Kids
One Stitch At A Time - Use a Digi- Spring/Easter

Squigglefly - Spring is in the Air
There's Magic in the Air - "Critter" in the image
