Last Rays of Sun-Yellow

Well crafters and followers, today is my very first DT project for Stamping Dragons Challenge - Last Rays of Sun.

When I applied to be a DT I didn't think I would be chosen so I never actually looked at the website or designs.  When I was chose, after getting over the initial shock I quickly went to look at the designs.  Boy are they gorgeous.  Quirky and different is how I would describe them and definitely beautiful designs.

Thing I like about a digi stamp is the versatility.  I can have any size I want. Now don't get me wrong I also love stamps but I will admit to their limitations in as much as they are one size.  With this digi stamp I took it into my serif craft artist programme, reduced it in size and then changed the colour to both yellow and purple, used the stamp mode and created my own backing paper too.  See definitely versatile.

So for my card, my shopping list is: -

C5 centura pearl card blank
piece of purple card
yellow 6x6 co'ordinations card
couture creations embossing folder - One World
spectrum noir pens - DG2; DG4; CT1; CT2; PL5
Digi Stamp - Fancy Floral
spellbinder labels 10
serif craft artist 2
yellow dotty ribbon
distress inks squeezed lemonade | milled lavender
brilliance dew drop ink pad - sunflower yellow
clear embossing powder
glossy accents

I have started with a C5 centura pearl card blank, followed by a piece of purple card which I pricked around the edges.

I coloured my main image using spectrum noirs then cut it into a square, rounded the corners, distressed the edges with some distress inks squeezed lemonade and matted that onto my yellow co'ordinations.  I have decoupaged the flower and finished it off with some glossy accents.

I then ran my backing paper, which I have designed myself using my serif craft artist, the digi stamp and stamp mode, through my GC using the One World embossing folder, I did have to extend it.  I distressed the edges using squeezed lemonade and milled lavender distress inks.

I then finished the card off with a yellow dotty ribbon and a sentiment die cut using my labels 10 spellbinders die and cutting a faux mat.

I do hope you like it and don't forget to hop over to  Stamping Dragons Challenge - Last Rays of Sun. and enter.  Good Luck.
