First DT card for Digital Ink Company Challenge #17

Yeh we are finally here my first DT card which is for the new challenge at the Digital-Ink Co, you need to create a tag, layout, card or project showing your interpretation of PEACE - a feeling, piece of cake, what gives you peace or world peace - whatever you want to do with PeaceThe sponsors this week - yes you read it right, we are now a weekly challenge - are Paper Wishes

1st Place Winner receives Paper Wishes Gift

2nd Place Winner receives 2 stamps

3rd Place Winner receives 1 stamp.

Here are the rules to follow:

1. You must post the image of the prizes on your blog/website with a link to our blog. Here is a small image for you to use for your side bar.

2. Be a follower (if you are not already)

3. Sign the “Mister Linky”, so that we can stop by and leave you lots of love. We love to do this!!!!!

You may enter any of our challenges as many times as you like, as long as the challenge piece is different. Of course, the more you enter, the more times you are entered into our drawings. We always love to see when Digital-ink Co. stamps are used in our challenges, so if you use one of our stamps, you’ll automatically be entered into the drawing twice!! Isn't that cool?

The challenge runs from February 22nd to February 28th at 8am EST and the winner will be announced along with our next challenge on March 1st.

Now onto my card - I have used the Dragonfly Flower image by Beary Dust Stamps which is shown below,

and is only $1.50 what fabulous value. This high quality stamp is in Jpeg, Png & Tiff format. They are 300Dpi perfect for printing. Add these to your paper products for a bit of whimsy and maybe a bit of Beary Dust will fall on you for luck!

I coloured mine with Promarkers on the flower and then used glitter on the Dragonfly wings and H2Os for the body. I put the image in a globe from the new My Craft Studio CD Rom (can't find it anywhere!) Cardmakers Library Vol 1 plus a background paper from the same CD.

The words were done in MS Word using a free font called The King and Queen and mounted on to some Core'dinations card stock which has been distressed. I also inked around the edges of the white paper with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink. The central piece is also Core'dinations cardstock - I have distressed this using my Tim Holtz Distressing tool. I used the sketch at Carol's Sketch Fun shown below.

So as you all know I like to join in with other challenges and DT cards are no exception.
I will also enter this card in the challenge at Creative Belli Challenge where they want Dragonflies/Butterflies, ABC Challenge - O is for one paper,  Practical Scrappers where you can use any type of stamp and, The Corrosive Challenge - Things with wings.

So what are you waiting for? Check out the other cards from the DT at the Digital-Ink Co - I am proud to be a member of such a talented group. I would love to see what you come up with.

Hi Ali, I wondered where the globe came from. That is a cute idea! I also love the glitter and the H2O's that really adds a lot to this card. Keep up the hard work girl!
