Design Team Inspirations

             The CWLC DT challenge this week was to use any image from Delicious  Doodles and make into a card that has 3 elements that are the same.  Here is what I did...First, I decided to really challenge myself and choose an image that I would not have normally chosen.  I printed the image twice.  Then, I colored the entire image with Copics.  Then I colored the three butterflies on the second image and cut them out.  (Not an easy task!)  I pop dotted the three butterflies on top of the full image.  I used a lot of glitter gel pen, but unfortunately, it doesn't show up in the picture.  The designer card stock that I matted with was also glittered.  I decided to use a dark orange card base to match the butterflies.  I used embossing ink with a small butterfly stamp and just gave the background a little more interest.  All in all, I am really pleased with the way it turned out.  I have learned that there should be no limits to my designs!

This next card that I made is for an entry into another design team called
Delicious Doodles.  They are the same company from which I chose the image before this card.  We were to use that particular image.  I colored with Copics and used white Stickles for the whipped cream.  I added some small rhinestones to look like sprinkles.  I also added some glitter gel pen highlights and some white pen highlights to the strawberry.  If you click on the image, you can see more of the detail.  I took a piece of teal CS and added some printed tape into three rows.  I then cut it out with Nestabilities.  I added the white stitching to give it some more dimension.  I added the sentiment and distressed with Ranger distress ink and then added the cup cake with pop dots.  The base card was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The inside was stamped and also distressed and the background had stitches added to match the front.  Don't you just love the inside saying?
