Happy 4th Anniversary Imagine That Digistamp!

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog – 3 days in a row posting, I think it’s a record for me these days!   Anyway, we are celebrating the 4th anniversary of Imagine That Digistamp Shop.  Make sure to visit the Imagine That Creative Playground blog where the Imagine That DT gals have been showing our very first DT creations as well as our favorite Imagine That Digistamp Shop images.

 

I joined the DT in April 2016, so I have been on the DT almost a yearSmile  My very first creation featured Leesa's Tulip, still one of my favorite images from Imagine That Digistamp.

Leesa's Tulip

I had a really hard time choosing my favorite image because I love all of them so much!  I especially love the image Kristy made for me Hippieaud, however, I have used this image so many times already that I thought I'd use one of my other favorite images for today's celebration.

So I used Steampunk Lizzy.  I love all the amazing details of this image and had so much fun coloring her with my Copics and Atyou Spicas.  I used "traditional" steampunk colors and I think the image really pops from these color choices.  I chose Bo Bunny papers, Kaisercraft wood embellies that I colored with my Copics and flowers from I Am Roses and Prima.  Sentiment, which also comes from Steampunk Lizzy set, is colored with Copics and cut out with my Cameo and then placed on a tag from the Bo Bunny paper I used.  I also added a nice piece of burlap under the sentiment.  Sure hope you like it!

FAE OF THE MONTH AT FAERY INK!!

Today is our One Day Fae of the Month giveaway at Faery Ink and as always, this month's image is a beauty!  Her name is Lahla Three Little Birds and you can find out all the details on how to claim your free image at Faery Ink Facebook Group and Faery Ink Blog.

I always love the Fae of the Month each month and have so much fun coloring these beauties.   This month I decided to use cool colors for her wings, the grass and the birds.

WIN_20170131_14_03_51_Pro

Here is a closer up view of her wings as well as the birds.  I used a combo of Copic grey, light blue and light purple, I believe it was C2, C0, B00 and V01 and in each case I did a bit of blending out with my Copic colorless blender.  For the wings I went in with my Copic colorless blender and added a bunch of dots – I hope this close up view allows you to see the details a bit better/clearer.

WIN_20170131_14_03_51_Pro

This fold I chose is a lever fold – usually I have seen it with a square or rectangle coming through the window, but I saw this circle lever on Pinterest and decided to give it a try.  I am really pleased with the results.Smile

WIN_20170131_19_17_12_Pro

I used Heartfelt Creations papers, butterflies from my stash and sentiment from Riley and Co. which is cut with Crafter’s Companion die.  Bling flourishes are from Zva Creative.  I used Tattered Lace dies for circles behind the image and image is cut with my Cameo.  Sure hope you like my creation and hopefully it has given you some inspiration.

faeryink_inspo_linker3

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday.  I just returned late Sunday from a 3 day trip to Memphis, TN for my younger son’s soccer tournament.  The weekend was better than expected, but busy, tiring and a lot of driving over the course of 3 days – 8 hrs. each way plus driving to the games.


Anyway, I have a creation to share today using one of the Newest Releases from Faery Ink Shop, Gorgeous Fitness Girl.
