As promised, I wanted to share with you all an extra free digi this week. This is another cartoon style digi that started life as a little doodle (from my January Doodle Days Challenge participation) and it’s called “Love You Tons.”
I was making two 3″ x 5″ (index card size) love-themed cards for my crafty friend Pam’s (YT: theoneandonlygrand), challenge celebrating 1000+ subbies on YT. Woot woot! These are a clean and simple (CAS) styel, and I thought these digis would be perfect for this project.
I shared the colors I used on the “Believe” digi in yesterday’s post, and the following are the markers I used for this digi: Elephant: W1 and W3; Blush and water/hearts: R30 and R20. I also added a little Clear Wink of Stella on the hearts to add a little shimmer.
I used paper from the new-to-me My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Record It! Double-Sided Cardstock 12″X12″- Heirloom Glamorous, the matching Layered Stickers, and Adhesive Enamel Dots. I love the sparkle from the red glitter in combination with the vintage feel of the more muted colors. The main thing that took more time (other than drawing and cleaning up the digis) was the fussy cutting of that intricate lacy heart behind the elephant (I added clear Wink of Stella on the lacy part of this heart too).
Because I couldn’t leave it at two non-doggy cards, I made an extra card with this adorable Tiddly Inks pup from the “I Wuf You” stamp set. I colored it up with Copic markers: E23, E25, and W1. The Sentiment is from one of my all time favorite sentiment stamp sets from Fiskars Cloud 9 Designs called “Simple Thoughts – Dog,” which was gifted to me by my crafty friend, Laura (YT: littleluluscraps). I used Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black Ink and clear Recollections embossing powder to lend a little elegance and shine to the sentiment, which reads: “Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog. – Sydney Jeanne Seward” Again, to add a little extra shimmer, I used clear Wink of Stella on the heart in the dog’s mouth as well as on the lacy parts of the fussy cut heart behind the dog (yep, I cut out another one–LOL).
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day! WOOF
