Let Them Eat Jam!!!

The New Design Team with a new DT coordinator Harriet Hensley (a wonderful designer) at The Digital-Ink Co. Challenge Blog  has been biting at the bit and is raring to go. This is the first challenge of the new year with the brand spankin' new Design Team.  They are all listed at my side bar so please visit all of there blogs and give them some well deserved praise!

For our first challenge the guidelines are "Pet and Babies Birthdays" we had to make a creation and use the 4 primary colors somewhere in our project along with one neutral color. When I found out I was assigned to Stitchy Stamps I was so excited because I had seen this adorable stamp and had an idea in my mind of what I could do with it so off I went. This stamp is called Jammin and normally sells for $3.00 but during the month of January it is on sale for $2.25 at the Digital-Ink Co. Store. I colored my little guy in with copics and the made my sentiment on my computer. I crossed off the cake so it changed to "Let Them Eat Jam" I then took stickles and added them to wherever the jam was on the image and a couple of finger prints on both sentiments. This card is a shadowbox frame and the tute can be found here. I chalked the edges of the frame a bit to give it depth and glazed a few parts of the image to make them shine.

Do you like the touch of my spoonful of jam?  I just couldn't resist and it is the best jam around. Here is a close up of the wonderful digi! He kind of reminds me of my Grandson when he was little. All dressed up in his sailor suit just like his Dady's uniform. Just not quite as pudgy!!!!

 We have a wonderful prize package for this challenge.
