Hi Everyone, my second DT post for Deedee's Digis today, Deedee is sponsoring a challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and we had this great sketch to work with. I have been waiting to use this wonderful Ladybird (as we call her in the UK) image, it is the cutest isn't it? I used the outline image and coloured her to match the DP's I decided to use. I also used this kit Here who would have guessed they are from the same kit?
After watching a few TV craft shows about dies and them saying to look how else they could be used. I decided to take a "border" die and cut it up. I used one of the patterns in each corner and used 3 patterns to link them. I am pleased with the effect around the card and will now look at the other dies I have and, NOT used - hang head in shame! to see what else I can come up with. Keep a look out LOL.
The sketch was copied into Photoshop and I laid out my DP's as per the sketch. I added a double copy of the flower that the Ladybird holds, enlarging it slightly to add to the corner as per the sketch. I found a Ladybird "button" in my files and copied it 3 times, and some Ladybird scatters and added them to the main image. After printing it all, I cut them out and layered on top of the die cut edge with some ribbon from my stash. Added Stickles and 3D gloss.
