My Secret is out...Cardmadfairy's Brand New Images

You have all been waiting very patiently for my secrest and here it is......the fabulously talented Jenni over at Cardmadfairy Creations now has a DT of which I am very proud to be a member along with some other lovely talented ladies! Please visit Jenni at Cardmadfairy's Creations as she has some beautiful brand new digi images for sale as well as many others and I have to say that she service she provides is first class! 

This is what Jenni has to say ~

"I will be starting a new challenge blog in January with fun packed fortnightly challenges and the team will be joined by a new Guest Designer every month, but for now I will leave you with some of the fabulous cards the design team have created with my latest Christmas digi stamps - they have really brought the images to life don't you think?"

She very kindly provided us with her brand new Christmas images to make our first DT cards with and I opted for 'Christmas Carol'.

Using Christmas Carol, I printed one image then flipped it in My Craft Studio and printed another alongside to provide a small group of carollers (not quite mastered merging yet!!), coloured them using Promarkers and lightly distressed the edges.  I matted it onto matt gold mirri board.  Using a 5x5 card blank, I matted and layered some DP from Bearly Mine onto the same matt gold mirri board and distressed the edges.  Printing off a music score of a Christmas Carol, I distressed it, rolled it into a scroll shape and stuck it down onto DP after adding a ribbon. The bow shape has come up really well - what I did was tie a normal bow then turned it around the bottom ribbon and it has really made it look better than my usual tied ribbons! (Well I think so).  I added some pale blue gems to the corners of the DP and the image.
Christmas Carol digi image from Cardmadfairy Creations coloured with PMs:
Cornflower, Pastel Blue, Sandstone, Caramel, Marsh Green, Blush, Ivory & Satin.
Ribbon from local craft shop;
DP freebie from Bearly Mine;
Mirri board from The Range;
Distress Ink is Whispers Archival Walnut;
Gems are from Papermania Hamstead range I got in bday pressie from a very kind follower and now friend.

I hope I have managed to do Jenni proud and be sure to pop along and see what my fellow DT buddies have done with her brand new images.

I am also entering this into Beary Mine DT call ~ Donna has some stunning freebies and lots of even more stunning digi papers on Beary Mine so even if you don't enter the DT call  please visit her and grab some of her papers!! All she asks is that you leave a comment when you take a paper- simple as that!
