D2D and a couple of Birthday wishes-inside and out!

 Blog-versary post is HERE

Today I used my digi’s from D2D (Designed2Delight) that is free this week. To get the Mojo going, I checked out what challenges were current and came up with a few- the new D2D challenge blog Double Delight wants a tent topper or a tent card- I have never made one of these before…so I got to work.
I printed out 3 of the images, and increased the size slightly for each one. I cut them out and layered them. I colored the image with Copics B95, RV34, YG13, BV02 and Y06.  I used the Marker-tapping technique from the Technique Junkies.  The card, the rub-ons, ribbon and DSP inside are from a Girl’s birthday kit from Creative Cards and More.
I added Creative Inspirations Paint for glimmer to the image.  I outlined the scallops with the clear Spica Copic pen.  I also decorated the inside of the card- first time ever…….
For the inside, I used more rub-ons, stickers and DSP from the kit mentioned above.
Double Delight-Tent Topper
Caardvarks-Birthday card
Party Time Tuesday-Outside in (decorate the inside of the card)
I decided to use more of the kit including a precut and scored card and make another card.
I have never made cards from a kit before- and I am really enjoying this!  Here is the inside of the card- the main image is on the inside of the card- this is called an Aperture card. I colored the image with Copics Y11, B21, R81, G40 and Y11. The sentiment is Stampendous (from 1998). I added glimmer on the inside with Creative Inspirations Pains and added a touch of the clear Spica Copic pen on the edge of the scallops inside.
Stamptacular-Aperture Card
Digi Doodle-Circles and dots
Paper Makeup-window card
Speedy the Cat-Markie’s Finest Papers-Use a die cut
Glitterbabe’s-make it sparkley
Pile it on-favorite things-Creative Inspirations Paints and Spica pens- sparkly stuff!!!
Sentimental Sundays-Celebrations
Incy Wincy-punches (used to punch out the hole for the Aperture window in the DSP).

I posted an ATC about a month ago, and Larisa asked me if she could have it- so I sent it off. Well, here in the mail today, I received an awesome ATC from her-all of the way from Russia.  I LOVE this- she is quite the artist!!!  Thanks so much!

What a cute idea to increase the size and use them as layers, that really turned out very well. I love the ATC you received from Russia. That is really amazing, I love doing those things.
