Digital-Ink Co Challenge

Hello Friends!  It is time for another challenge at Digital-Ink Co. and we are celebrating New Beginings! With this challenge this will be the end of the 2009 Design Team and we will have a New Beginning here too. On 1/5/2010 a new team will start there duties and the next challenge will not start until 1/25/10.  This will give them time to acclimate and get the most exciting and wonderful creations ready for you!  I have a few digi images this week to share with you and am I excited!!!!! First off I have the lovely Lil Diva digi stamp called Bella Ballerina normally priced at $2.50 but available until the end of the month at half price. She is dancing through time and into 2010.

I made a side step card for this one and you can get the tutorial here. I colored the image with copics and used some stickles to make her tutu sparkle! The background paper was a glittery silver so I wanted to keep everything else pretty simple and clean.  I think she is a charmer!

My second digi stamp from Digital-Ink Co. this week is from the Super Stitchy Stamps called Bucky Bronco. This sweet image is available until the end of the month again at 50% off, at the price of $1.50.

This time I decided to make a spring card. You can find the tutorial right here. This was a pleasure to create. I decided to make the Bronco able to kick with a touch of your finger so I put  him on a brad and put it between the two peices of card stock.  By touching the image you can move him up and down to give a kick. This way he really is kickin' up a celebration!  By just removing the 2010 this could be used for any type of celebration!  I think he is a hoot and realy liked how he turned out!

The last image I used this week from Digital-Ink Co. is from the marvelous M & M Designz. Do you know that stands for Mom and Me.  Isn't that a wonderful sentiment.  The digi stamp I was honored to work with was Vintage Hat & Girl. Once again normally priced at $3.00 but until the end of the month can be purchased at $1.50.  This image is beautiful and made me think about remembering our past as we look forward to our future.

On this creation I tried to make it look very old to stay with the feel of the image.  I used pale gold DP and stamped a background of a letter on the front.  I used copics and chalk to color the girl. I then took some flowers and feathers to adorne her stunning millery. I distressed the edges with gold and walnut ink. The sentiment was made on my computer. I made this one a Tri-shutter card and the tutorial can be found here. To fill the spaces inside the card I stamped some small images of old antiques. Please forgive the picture. The chair I took the picture of the open card on, has a slant so the card looks like it is crooked. I guarantee it is straight!

I think she turned out just lovely! Very refined and elegant!

Now it is your turn to hop on over to Digital-Ink Co. Challenge blog, for a chance to win the prizes,

 link your creation with Mr. Linky and show us what you got! This challenge will run for one week instead of the normal two week. I know it will be MARVELOUS!!!!!!!

My new beginning resolution this coming year is to " Have more patience with everyone" as I have grown older I have realized that I have grown more cynical at times. I also need to apreciat what I have been given in the past before always looking to the future. I need to correct that and also loose about 50 lbs. Make certain you check out the other KREATIVE  Design Team Members creations. Their blogs are linked on the side of my blog!
