Criss Cross Lilacs........

Good Morning everyone.  I am so pleased to bring to you another week of Digi Doodle Shop's Best!


For our project this week, we were to use our theme of SPRING TIME and make a card with a fold or shape of some sort other than the normal fold in half.  I chose to use the criss cross card. I found my tutorial here at Split Coast Stampers Resouces. They have tons of them and if ever in need a great place to look.



I chose the Lilacs stamp from The Digi Doodle Shop and printed it in two different sizes.  I WAS feeling very Spring like when I made this card earlier in the week.  Little did I know as I write this post I would have waken up to a dusting of snow!!!!!!!!



For the Lilacs inside I colored the leaves with copics : YG03, YG09 and then shadowed them with C1, on the flowers I gave them a quick color of V15 and then lavendar flower soft to give them a dimensional look and feel. I also added just a touch of stickles to the leaves.



On my outside Lilacs I colored the leaves the same but actually colored the flowers this time with copics and colors : V15, V12, and FV2.  Stickles were also added to the flowers this time too. C1 around the entire image to give a shadow.


I stamped a sentiment with a Stampin' Up stamp I had in my stash and here is the complete card.

I hope you will all join us at Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge and give your hand a try at a new fold.  I have been blog hopping the past few days and have seen some magnificent ones out there.  The Design Team has been busy getting some inspiration together for you so please leave them some love after you visit!!! All the details are on the challenge blog and the winner wil win their choice of stamp excluding a custom made stamp but be put in a drawing with the other April winners to be drawn at the end of the month to win their very own.

Now if the weather will just cooperate with me I will have my own Lilacs soon in my yard to enjoy!!!
