For Dad - Digistamps4Joy New Release May 17, 2015

Hi all, it's time for Digistamps4Joy's new releases once again. Riette has been very hard at work to bring us some beauties once again. 

The image that I got to play with is called 'Life Saver' and was the perfect image to go with Margy's image 'Lake Malawi'. 
 I merged the two images and then coloured them with my Chameleon pens. I added white highlights on the water with my white gelly pen. 
I hope that you will head on over to our Challenge Blog and check out the other wonderful images the Riette has done up to entice you. And while you're at it, check out the fab creations that my teammies have come up with and our current challenge...the theme is Buttons, Bows and Bling! Hope to see you there. 

Thanks for popping in ~ Charlene

Buttons, Bows and Bling...Oh My

Bows and buttons and bling, oh my. It's time for the mid challenge reminder at Digistamps4Joy and this month Sara has chosen the theme of Bows, buttons and bling. Whoo whee...what a fabulous combination. 

For my card I chose to use an image from the last new image releases. It's called Swing. I tried a new fold that is called a Peek a Boo card and you can find the video tutorial here and the written tutorial here.

 The dp on the outside is a new one from Nana Vic's (thanks Vickie).
I coloured the image with my Chameleon pens and made up my own sentiment. 

When you open the card the sentiment slides into place in front of the image. 
Please excuse the pictures, I just could not get the colours to go right. The real colour of the inside paper is the photo above. 

I hope that I have inspired you to join our challenge. You have until Sunday May 31st to join us. You are not required to use a Digistamps4Joy image but if you decide to use one not only will we be tickled pink but you will also have a chance at winning the DT choice which is a $10 Gift Voucher! How great is that? 

So head on over to our Challenge Blog and check out all the rules and prizes...and all of my team mates incredible creations. We hope to see you join us in our challenge.
