April D.O.T.M.

Hi all.  Time to showcase the Design of the Month (DOTM) at Imagine That Digis.  The set this month is called My Sailmate.  If you played last month, then you will be able to get this whole set for free.  Also, if you didn't play, not to worry, you can purchase the set here and when you submit a project using one of the images, you will automatically receive the next month's set for free!  As long as you play, you will continue to get your free set.  There are so many images that are included, as well as sentiments, you are sure to find something that you will love to use.

For my card this month, I did a total change from my "normal" cards.  This one is truly a mixed media project.  I printed the image on white card stock and on a print out of one of IT's designer papers so that I could paper piece the mast sail.  I made waves with a quilling technique in blue & white.  The boat was colored with alcohol markers.  I painted the water with Inktense blocks and water and added white gel pen to make the waves in the water.  For the sky, I used what is called a Bokeh method which I did by using a small ink dauber and pounced the different colors of the sky from the darkest, down to the lightest.  After that, I used a soft white ink and pounced again with the dauber.  This technique gives an out of focus look.  I think my card is interesting.  Definitely not my usual stuff!  Hope you enjoy it.

Come and play with us in our DOTM challenge.  

Until next time...
