Happy Birthday Emma

I've never used digi stamps, but I won some stamps in a challenge last year and chose ‘Cocktail Emma’ as I thought it would be perfect for my niece’s birthday.  I’m entering this card into Becky's Place January Challenge, As You Like It 'Anything Goes' challenge (I love this digi as it reminds me of  my lovely niece!) and Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.

Card blank: 7” x 7” white silk
Digi Stamp: Pink Gem Designs pre-coloured ‘Cocktail Emma’
Colouring: Sandstone & Cinnamon Promarkers
Card: White smooth, pink Moondust, black matt
Other: Computer generated sentiment ‘ Harrington’ font, Star Dust Stickles, Wink of Stella

I used the pre-coloured image and slightly reduced the size before adding my sentiment, this was then printed onto white card.  I trimmed the image to size, layered it onto pink Moondust and black card before attaching it to my card front.  Although the image was pre-coloured, I used Promarkers to darken Emma’s hair, to match the colour of my niece’s hair.  I then added Star Dust Stickles to the shoes, dress frill, star and ear rings and a Wink of Stella to the cherries.

I rarely use digi's as I seem to blur the ink when I colour them...must be doing something
