Couldn't sit still and relax so decided to colour another Saturated Canary image.  The one is from the Ragamuffin range and called HAND ME DOWNS.  That's how we were all dressed years ago - luckily I was the oldest girl so I did manage to get some new clothes but not many!

Stamps: Digi stamp - Hand me downs!
Papers used: My Minds Eye paper stack

Prisma and Polychromo pencils
White gel pen

As above plus Co-ordinations

Dies used:
Magnolia swirl

Two days ago for the first time I found some Saturated Canary digital stamps.  Although I have many stamps waiting to be inked I could not resist these quirky, cute images.  The next 24 hours went really slow as I constantly checked my email for download information. 

Just as I was thinking of going to bed as they started arriving (ALL 17).  That was it I started printing them off straight away.  I even stayed up all night to make a start.  I usually like to play with colouring them before actually using as for me it's like getting a new car - you can drive but you have to get used of how your car performs before you can up your speed etc.

The first one I decided to use was CRUSHING ON THE QUARTER BACK  and I chose to do more grungy rather than cute and girly.

Having finished this one I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not although I had achieved the look I was going for.

Card 2

Feeling uncertain about Card 1 I thought I'd have another go at creating a card to enter for DT call.
This time I chose ELLIE which I chose because I liked the stroppy face especially on sure a cute Fairy image!

The feeling tired I fell asleep for a couple of hours and woke up just in time to see Doctors!

Still unsure whether or not either of the above were good enough to enter challenge I set about making my final card.

I chose to use NEVAEH and

For my final card feeling less pressed to achieve a suitable project to submit I just made the above card as if I wasn't bothered or not whether I got picked for DT.  I told myself that either way it didn't matter as no matter what I could still use the images!
