Wow I am on Tiffany's DT!!!


I am really excited to announce that Tiffany has asked me to join the Tiffany Doodles Design Team and I am thrilled, Tiffany's digital images are not only her own original drawings, she also creates fabulous digi's based on her beautiful nature photography. The joy of using digital images is that you can re size and manipulate them to suit your own cards designs.  I have to admit that I am fairly new to using digital images but I really enjoyed learning a new technique and am looking forward to experimenting over the next few months.

It's June 7th and that means it's the start of a new challenge at Tiffany Doodles and this month's theme is "Steppin' Into Summer", I have made two cards for the challenge.  The first uses this Flip Flop image, I love flip flops and have a few pairs, I am sure that if I lived in a hotter climate I would live in them and have lots of bright, beautiful pairs preferably with lots of bling!
For this card I have reversed the center image and then just paper pieced adding some gems and the button and twine.



This second card uses the Dancing Dress digi, it is also paper pieced I have actually cut two dress skirts and layered one over the other to give more depth.


This card is more suited to a British summer (that's if it doesn't rain!!!) the height of chic would be going to a Garden Party in a pretty flowing summer dress!! ( Well I can dream)LOL!

I hope you get chance to join in the challenge!


Have a great week!
