New Challenge #88 at Glitter N Sparkle

Here we are again,
This week has been rather a lazy one,
but that is because I still hadn't really recovered
from my Trip till around Friday.
Glad to say my Leg is now back to normal
and no longer reminds me of a
puffy tree trunk lol.

This week is gonna be a busy one,
especially for card making.
Got my Sisters Birthday, Partners Birthday,
and (I think I added them up properly)
9 Father's Day Cards 
for different parts of the family.
So that's why I've been doing a lot of them recently.

Anyway here is my project for this Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Use A Digi

Our Sponsors this week are:-

All Dressed Up who are offering
2 Images from their store

Fresh Brewed Designs who are offering
3 Images from their store

Sassy Studios who are offering

A Day For Daisies who are offering

My project for this week is:-

Finger Paint Digi Stamp 
from A Day For Daisies
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I Cut and Folded an 
A4 sheet of Dark Red Card
to make a 14.5x16cm size Card

Next I used a Splatter Paint Abstract Background
and cut it to 14x15.5cm
On top of that I Off-Set a 12.5x11cm piece of
Splatter Walpaper

For my Image I used my Greeting Card Factory Programme,

and added it to a ClipArt picture of an Easel.
And also added the Sentiment using 
the 'Ryan BT' Font.
and printed off 2 copies on White DC Paper.

I coloured in my Image 
using my Promarker Pens.

               Skin -                Vanilla
               Hair -                 Shale
               T-Shirt -             Grass
                                        Meadow Green
               Dungaree's -     Denim Blue
               Paint Pots -       Yellow
                                        Cool Grey 1
                                        Cool Grey 2
                                        Cool Grey 4
               Brushes -          Shale
                                        Pastel Beige
                                        Cool Grey 3
               Brush Pot -        Sandstone
                                        Cool Grey 1
                                        Cool Grey 2
               Easel -              Cool Grey 1
                                        Cool Grey 2
                                        Cool Grey 3
                                        Cool Grey 4
                                        Cool Grey 5
               Palette -            Sandstone
                                        Cool Grey 1
               Paint Tubes -    Yellow

I then cut out the Full Easel,
and also fussy cut out just the Shelf 
with all the Paints, Brushes and Palette,
which I decoupaged up to give a bit of depth.

To finish off my card 
I added a rainbow of alternating 
Striped and Polka Dot Candies
(Candi, Cardwork Crafts),
all down the Right side of the Card.
