First Digi Image Card

It's been awhile since I've last posted. I've been way too busy with report cards and I've only hit the tip of the iceberg. 67 more to go out of the 108. One more week left!

Anyway, I couldn't help myself and made a card using a free digi image. Since I got my Copic markers a few weeks ago, I thought I'd try working with it more. I didn't even know that digi images were big for cards too. So here's my go at one. The image is courtesy from Sliekje Digi Stamps who has super cute drawings. I chose this one because it reminds me of my daughter so much.

I can't wait for the beach! One more month and we're off to the private beach at my daughter's grandpa's place :)

How it's made...
The water is created from a white sheet of cardstock that I was experimenting with using blue acrylic ink and a sponge a few weeks ago. I used distress ink for the background. As for the sentiment, I am pretty limited in these stamps so I had one I got last year from Wal-mart ($1 for a pack of about 20 words connected to bar code images..I think it must've been a price error!). Since I didn't want the bar code part of the stamp, I used tape to mask it out when I inked the stamp and then peeled it off when I stamped it. I'm quite proud about using that little trick :).

In other news, I got randomly chosen and won $15 to use at CropStop from the Shopping with Virginia Luu Challenge I entered in from my previous post. I'm sooo happy!! I've never won so much in my life. I'm so glad I discovered this whole other blog world out there for cardmakers. I have an idea of what I want to get but I'll share that in the form of a card once I get the item :)
