Paper Crafting Journeys Pink Cat Studio

Well its time for a fresh challenge over at Paper Crafting Journey, and what a treat was in store for the design Team!!
I was hard pressed to choose from the images available, so I took the easy way out! I used both! Pink Cat Studio Digis are so cute and that's the Challenge for this fortnight over at Paper Crafting Journey, Make it Cute.
I used both images available, the Sunshine Fairy, and the Lily Butterfly, and merged them in my Graphics program of choice, My Craft Studio.

So I had Lily, sprinkling Sunshine on the Flowers behind the Butterfly fairy. Next I went to work with my promarkers. In My Craft studio I had also added a frame to the image, from the store of Digi Images I have by My Craft Studio, and bought the Butterfly Fairy outside the frame slightly.

Digi images dont really look very much until you have coloured them to bring them to life, a bit like Rubber stamps., But there's 2 differences with digi as opposed to Rubber stamping, Firstly, you ALWAYS get a perfect Image at the SIZE YOU want with a digi, secondly, you cant drag the ink into position, as you can with a Stamped image or emboss it.
Next for me was to mount the image, which is always a tough decision.........Do you do an ordinary card, a shaped card, and easle, Pop up.. the list seems endless now a days. So I settled for a Twisted easel card. I used a 5x5" square base, and added some foiled card as the mount for the image. I used a piece of paper from a mega pack of K&Co papers, for the base, positioning it so that the butterfly was in the right place. I used some Spellbinders dies to the flowers and leaves, from the Hexagon Petal Grand die, and Rose creations die set. A few small Brads to hold the flowers together, and Pinflaired into position, to hold the easle up for display. A touch of Gold Glitter gel, and you have a pretty, Light card, for late spring early summer.

Hope you like it, do pop over to Paper Crafting Journey and join in the Challenge, as there are 5 digi's of your choice on offer by Pink Cat Studios, so its worth a go!!!

enjoy ladies and possibly gents, xx

Your card is so cute! I like how you coordinated both images into the card, it looks great!
I love Pink Cat Studios stamps they are so cute! I have some of the rubber stamps but don't do the digis as I only have an inkjet printer.
