Hope you're all ok and that you're having a great weekend?
Today's the start of challenge #3 over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog where the theme for this fortnight is Double Trouble! That means we want to see lots of lovely projects which include two people, two animals or one of each having fun, up to mischief or having and adventure! So a great fun challenge with many options for you to come up with more fabulous projects...and those in Challenge #2 were incredible! AND the prize is $30 to spend at the Lacy Sunshine store and 2 digis to each of the Top Three (excluding retiring or precoloured digis).
This week Heather's came up with some fantastic digis which are now my absolute favourites. They're extra special to me as the little lad featured in them is for my son, Jamie...hence the boy being called Jamie. Heather's teamed Jamie up with her lovely Maddie who was a little bit of a homeless waif before but now she's got a fellow adventurer in Jamie so you'll be seeing a lot of them I think. Last night, Heather released loads of new digis featuring the adventuresome duo, and I reckon they're going to be a big hit. You can see some of them in the other Sunshine Girls' projects over on the challenge blog. If you would like to purchase Heather's digis, they are ONLY available at the Lacy Sunshine store. Anyone else selling any of Heather Valentin's digis is doing so illegally!
Anyway...enough waffle...here's my project:
The digi I've used in this one is called Jamie & Maddie - Dinosaur Discovery and is absolutely fabulous and so good to colour. I've made this into an 8 x 8 card as the image is a biggy! I really love this one as Jamie (the real one) is a real little fossil hunter and an absolute expert in all things prehistoric. There is a set of Adventure Digi Bits (images to create a background) to go with these digis, but the other girls used them (brilliantly, I might add) so I decided to show that these digis look just as great without the Digi Bits.
I've coloured this using my Promarkers (and three Copics) as follows:
Skin: Copics E00, E11 and E21
Darker brown areas: Walnut, Cocoa and Caramel
Maddie's Hair: Walnut, Cocoa and Cinnamon
Black areas: Black, Cool Grey 3 and 5
Green Khaki: Khaki and Olive Green
Eyes and Blue Bits: Marine, Turquoise and Cool Aqua
Maddie's Hat (and other areas same colour) : Caramel and Sandstone
Maddie's Outfit: Cinnamon and Sandstone
Bones: Putty and Almond
Brush Bristles: Satin
Think that's all of them...sorry if I've missed any.
I asked Jamie what he'd like me to make and he wanted a card but he also wanted it to look like a scrap page, so that's what I've done. He wanted me to pretend that the image was a real photo so I've made little photo corners to make it look like it had been stuck in an album.
The elements and papers I have used are from a kit called Dinoroar from Just So Scrappy (link over on right sidebar). I didn't have time to print out and cut out all the letters, so I've created the wording digitally straight onto the backing paper and added some shadow. The palm leaves are also from the same kit as the papers, so I've just printed them out, cut them out and used them for the embellies. And that's it...my team card for Challenge #3.
I know one person who absolutely loves this card...my Jamie! He thinks Heather's an absolute star for creating his digi. There were quite a few different ones released in the Lacy Sunshine store so head over for a look...there are golfing ones, dancing ones, clown ones... I love, love, love them.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
