The Sisterhood of Crafter's - Divine Digi's Challenge

Hi folks,

If you are a frequent visitor then you have probably noticed a new addition to my sidebar. That's right! I'm delighted to announce that I am a Step Sister for September and October with The Sisterhood of Crafters! Starting today, be sure to stop by every other Wednesday to check out my creations for the current challenge.

The challenge for the next two weeks (Sept 11th to 22nd) is "Divine Digi's" - that's right! Use a digi on your creation and link it up at the challenge post so we can "ooh" and "aah" over all of your fabulous creations.

Shelly's Images is the sponsor of this week's challenge so I chose to work with this absolutely LOVELY pumpkin image in order to get a head start on this year's Thanksgiving cards. I chose to work with the uncoloured image but, like so many of Shelly's Images, these pumpkins are also available in a coloured version if you prefer.

card details:

  • finished size: 5.5 x 5.5 inches, kraft card stock base. Autumnal red card stock mats.
  • patterned paper: Recollections "Autumn" mat stack
  • digi image: Shelly's Images "Pumpkins", printed on Copic X-Press It card stock, coloured with Copic Markers (YR20, YR21, YR12, YR15, YR16, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99, YG21, E21, E23, E25, E27) and sky background sponged with CTMH Heavenly Blue Ink. I actually coloured two of these images and cut out the two smaller pumpkins and leaves so they are popped up with foam tape for some extra dimension.
  • sentiment: Verve "Tall Oaks" stamped in CTMH Barn Red.
  • die cuts: Cuttlebug Leaves, Spellbinders Petite Ovals
  • layout: Unscripted Sketches #221
additional challenges for this card:

As always, thanks for stopping by!

First of, I'm a little late in welcoming you into the Sisterhood. (Life has been hectic in my neck of the woods :-( ). Your card is beautiful and your coloring is awesome. I love how you documented each and every color you used. I know all to well how much work that can be. Great card!!!!

What a beautiful creation Sheena! LOVE how your simple background really showcases this beautifully colored image! And of course the fall leaves is the perfect finishing touch! Great job!
I am so happy you've come to join us at the Sisterhood for the next few months and look forward to seeing more of your creations!
