Charmed Digi Challenge

Well it's not really Dottie's World anymore, it is shared by the many other characters that makes up the Charmed digi stamps :-) My turn to set the challenge today and this is it:

The challenge is simply "Coffee and Cream with spots or stripes" - and a Charmed download of course.

I have lots of spots and stripes on my card and the colours are of course coffee & cream. The digi-stamp used here is Puddle Love from the Dottie & George Love & Marriage collection. I think this is such a special image, just delightful; I absolutely love it and never tire of using it.



A liberal use of Glossy Accents on the puddle and umbrella provided a nice "wet look" just perfect for this image.




This is roughly what I used to make this card:

  • Digi Stamp: Puddle LOve from the Dottie & George Love & Marriage collection
  • Papers: Brown textured cardstock. Pixie Press paper (leftover from our sale)
  • Embellishments: K&Co Ancestry rhinestones. Petaloo Flowers and flower centre. K&Co buttons and lettering (Life's Journey). Cream cotton lace
  • Tools & Misc: Nestabilities, McGill Pine Punch, Glossy Accents, Distress Inks
I coloured the image using Copic markers.


Lots of inspiration on Dottie's World today as we have no less than FOUR new design team members starting. Please pop over and take a look.
