Digistamps4joy Design Team

Happy Spring Day, although in Cape Town it still looks and feels like winter!

I have been dying to share some great news with you but had to wait until 1 September.  I am very honoured to have been selected to join the Design Team of our first local digistamp store - Digistamps4joy.  Thank you Mel! Join her blog and facebook group to play along in the upcoming challenges and be part of the fun.

I found our first task a challenging one.  We were given this photo from an interior designer and had to find the inspiration for our card - using the colours and patterns in the room. 

Funky Kate is such a "cool" cute image and I have coloured her with Promarkers - cocoa, sandstone, purple, azure, hot pink, pastel pink and Copic E00.  The edges of the white Nestabilities circle are sponged with Vivid purple and the flowers are made with a Cuttlebug die and mounted with foam tape.  I have Cuttlebugged the striped paper with circles.  Hope you like my card!

Please pop in and visit my fellow Design Team members:

Audrey (United States)

And don't be shy to leave comments on our blogs, we just love getting feedback from you!  Thank you for popping in, have a wonderful Spring day.  I'm off to pick some jasmine to fill my house with the smell of Spring.

Great job on the card. You mentioned you found it quite a challenge... that's the point of the challenge (Lol!) - I know I love challenges...
And you aced it. For your first DT card, you did a fantastic job of interpreting the challenge. Great colouring too.

Sooper dooper card Debbie! I also initially found the image a little challenging, but then the juices just ran!! I love the way you picked up the blue and maroon colours in the room. The embossing looks great too. Look forward to working with you on the DT and seeing more of your stunning creations.
