Digi Images

Hi Guys - i have a couple of cards to share with you - the first one i made using a Fred She Said Digi Image which is pre-colored - i love these images.

i used my nesties to cut the image and to add the scallop but the patterned shape is a tim holtz on the edge die - i just turned my card round and cut it again - the colored lace and flowers were white but i sprayed them with my homemade shimmer spray - the seam binding came from the Ribbon Girl as did the funny little berry thingies.
This next card was made using a Saturated Canary Digi Image - i just love these images - i have colored the image using my Prismacolor Pencils - the flowers are from Iamroses and the seam binding is from the Ribbon Girl and the fence is from an old Sizzix die that i have.

This next card is also using one of the awesome Saturated Canary Digis-i think i am addicted to these images-lol - i have used the small cheery lynn flourish die and the flowers were from WOC and again i have sprayed them the color i want the lace is from my stash.

and this is Grannies Little Helper - i even put it on the chair so he could use it better - Ethan thinks its great - Grannie is not so sure about Ethan helping tho - lol
