The background color doesn't show very well in this scanned picture, but it is a metallic pink that coordinates well with the other colors in the card.

CDAC Progressive Challenge #4 Card 2

Round 4 of these CDAC Progressive Challenges is underway. The theme this challenge is Halloween or Mystical. We have quite a variety of images that we can choose to work with this time. I chose this image because I am quite interested in mandalas and I find them extremely interesting not only to color, but also to create. This image was created by Daisy Doodles Digital Stamps. This digital stamp was hand drawn by Julie Ball and is protected by copyrights.

I used the following materials to create this card:
     Coloring:  atyouSpica markers
     Cardstock:  Scrap Pack, Wal-Mart
     DP:  DCWV Old World Stack
     Rhinestones:  Best Occasions
     Border Punch:  Martha Stewart

CDAC Progressive Challenge 4 Card 1

The newest round of the CDAC Freebie Progressive Challenge started on the first of October. There are six wonderful images for us to choose to work with for this challenge. I chose to work with the cat and jack-o-lantern image drawn by Design2Delight Digital Stamps. The theme for this round of the Progressive Challenge is Halloween/Mystical.

I really wanted to use the cat & jack-o-lantern image to create a spooky scene on a card front. I ended up using three different images from my collection in order to create the scene that I am happy with. I can't wait to hear what your thoughts are about this particular card. I used watercolor pencils, Prismacolor Brush Tip markers, and Atyouspica markers to color this image. I created the background image with watercolor pencils so that it would look like a full moon shining on a dark, foggy night. I am going to start saving my pennies to buy a new digital camera so that I can take better pictures of my finished cards.

Have a creative week.
