LEJ is Up and Running!

Wey-Hey!! LEJ designs is a brand new challenge site, set up by a lovely couple of Ladies, they put out their first DT request last month, and I got picked to be on it!! woohoo!!


So here's the details, and the card, which is just a little bit different!
Okay firstly the Elephants........... When I was a kid, my Mum and Dad had 2 wooden Elephants, and I used to play with them, and ALWAYS ended up in trouble if I didnt put them back EXACTLY as I had found them! Elephants are an old superstition, they have to be facing a certain way to prevent bad luck entering the home! But I didnt know that back then I was only little! But thats what sprang to mind when I saw LEJ Designs Elephants, and as my Daughter is moving house AGAIN very soon, I just had to do it!

I used my Craft Robo for the whole of this card, except the printing.!!!
Digi's dont just have to be printed off and coloured in! Play with them, try something different!
The photos are at a funny angle as the card and paper are all Pearlised, and you have to catch it just right with the cameras, to be able to see anything lol, so it doesn't actually look as good as it does in real life!
I created a house shape in Silhouette studio, and added some windows and a door. Then I used the draw tool to use the Silhouette to draw the digi and sentiment for me, before I set it to cut it out. I used the digi faded into the background a bit for the verse on the back, but it does fade on printed Pearlescent paper, when you print, as it mutes the print slightly, so be aware if you have never tried it before, make your image darker than normal, as it will fade on pearlescent paper!

Right pop over to the NEW CHALLENGE site, and see what my cohorts have been up to, and then pop to the shop and grab some yummy images for yourself, while I go off and get tortured by my physio!!!
