Okay, I have mentioned before how I love to discover new digi stamp stores. Well, recently I came across another store thanks to Tammy Ortiz (awesome challenge site). :-) I was in awe when I visited Jackson's Digital Expressions. I immediately made a purchase and as soon as I got home from work I printed them off, colored them up and will share one of them with you today. I instantly connected with these digis and had so much fun adding color to them.
Oh did I mention that they have a challenge blog as well? Well, they do. I used the color combo they offered (as a twist) to their Anything Goes challenge to design my card. I have to admit that when I first saw this color combo, I thought it would be a true challenge. However, once I sat down and started pulling the papers, embellishments, and cardstock together it took on a life of its own.
Here's the inspiration...

Here's my card...
|Sunday Hat III|
As I stated before, I didn't know where to start with this challenge. So, I colored up my image using Copics. Once I was happy with her look, I moved on to SU Chocolate cardstock for my card base. I then added some Bazzill Yellow cardstock. The dp I used is from Bo Bunny's Zoology 6x6 paperpack. It was a nice little find as I was going through my paperpacks. I mounted my image on a Spellbinder's diecut and used a Circle diecut to cut out the image. I used several different kinds of embellishments on this card, starting with the leaves which are cut from Cheery Lynn flourish diecut. I also used the two corner decos from Spellbinders. I finished it off with some flowers from Wild Orchids as well as a little Stickles (my FAV) here and there. I created the sentiment on my computer and used SU punches to punch it out.
I dedicate this card to all the ladies of my church. I can remember sitting behind several church ladies when I was younger and imagining that an animal would crawl out of thier huge hats with lots of feathers, flowers and or bows. My head is waaaaayyy to big to wear a hat (lol), but I do love the look of them with a nice suit and matching purse and heels.
Thanks for looking and commenting.
Now get to creating...
Remember: There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
