Kaboodle Doodles Does it With Digis!

This week's challenge at Kaboodle Doodles is to use a digital image in your creation. If you haven't played with digital images before - you need to jump in and give it a try. There's lots of sources for free digital images and you can see some of them on my Resources page. There are digital stamp sites listed as well as some resources for freebie vintage digital images which are really fun to play with. Here's my card for today's challenge:


All the cardstock on this card is from SU. The card base is Concord Crush, a new color I have not played with much so far. Being the purple crazy person I am though I imagine it will see a lot of use! The image is from this week's challenge sponsor, The Stamping Boutique and I colored it using my graphics software. It's matted on a piece of Pear Pizzazz which is mounted on a torn corner of Peach Parfait that was put through the Big Shot using the new Framed Tulips embossing die. I added some cute buttons (SU) and a sentiment using the Word Window and Modern Label punces (SU)

Thanks for visiting!

I LOVE how you did the torn edges on one side and then the beautifully embossed finished edges on the other sides. That is so creative and eye-catching! I'm going to have to file that technique away for future reference. Great job! Best, Curt

Adding that Framed Tulips mat, but with a ripped corner...Wow, I love it. What a simple way to add some excitement, without adding another embellishment.
