Morning -hope everyone is well and ready to join our new ATG/Dies/stencils challenge at Create and Inspire-sponsore by Sweet Escape Digis,and as I am now sorted with a new printer I used the beautiful image "Cheers",coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents.

I cut the image out and used silicone gel for depth and placed on a Spellbinders die-cut frame--the background was made using two shades of oxide ink through a Dutch Doobedoo and a TH stencil,the strips of adhesive gems from Home Bargains,also used one for an ear-ring.

Love how you've used a fancy die-cut behind your image. Really makes it pop. Dropping by to thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. Much appreciated, Carol.

Leslie Miller said...

Hooray for getting your printer all sorted out! I don't know what I'd do without my digis. They sure save space and money. This one is beautiful with your very cool background and highlighted with the black. Doobedoo is my little female Golden Retriever's nick name. Her real name is LuLu, but I mostly call her DooDoo (as in doodoo head), or Dooby Doo (as in Scooby Doo). Or sometimes I refer to her as The DooDoo (as in The Beaver, in Leave it to Beaver). Don't know if you're familiar with any of those references. Silly, I know. Pet owners... sheesh!
