Stampin for the Weekend - challenge #2

OMG!!!!! what a tremendous first week we had and thank you to all who entered our first challenge over at SFTW, we also received some lovely comments and e-mails of encouragement and good wishes, which we are all so very grateful for.

So now onto this weeks challenge which is entitled

"Going Digital"

For challenge #2 we would like for you to create a card or project of your choice using a digi download image. Our sponsor for this week is the very talented Dustin Pike who has kindly donated a fabulous prize, just pop over to SFTW to find out more. You can either click on his name above or the picture below to take you to Dustin's blog
We are also very pleased to welcome Sandie, who is going to be our Guest Designer for the next two weeks, Sandie creates such beautiful cards, why not pop over to her blog and see for yourself.

So here are the cards I have made for this weeks challenge. I used the "Grads" download from Dustin Pike's blog, which just so happens to be a freebie, how kind is this guy, there are also many more freebie downloads available. As the both freebie images were downloaded together I thought I would go with that and make two cards. Both images have been coloured with Copic markers, around the images I have used Brilliance ink pads in Pearlescent Blue and Silver with a sponging technique. Both cards have HOTP papers from a kit I bought yonks ago from QVC. The sentiments are a mix of Cuddly Buddly and SU, with some gems, ribbons and punches as embellies.

Well done and congratulations to the rest of the fabby DT at SFTW for creating some delish designs this week. After such an overwhelming response to our first week, I do hope you will be able to join in with this weeks challenge. Looking forward to seeing your creations.
Have a fab weekend all.

luv 'n' hugs

Well Vicki what can I say, you've done a smashing job on both unusual to see cards without any flowers or embellies on them, but the papers and your layouts are fabulous and nothing else is needed. Your coloring on them is outstanding......well done on both of them.
