So here we are, another week another project.
My DT project for Stamping Dragon Designs this week was
Rupert's Friend.

This card grew from me having a play with a free cd rom I had got from a magazine, 
I can't remember the magazine but it was a Papermania capsule cd.
I have not done a digital card before but, when I started playing, the results seemed just right for the image that I had already coloured with promarkers and cut out ready for a card...

So having thought about combining the two I needed a sentiment and decided on something
that meant alot to me with various friends in the facebook Stamping Dragon group
and on facebook as a whole...

So here it is, my first digital card (well most of it)

RUPERT'S NEW FRIEND

And so we begin...

Seeing as this is a brand new blog that has been wonderfully pimped
by the amazing Janette at Stamping Dragon Designs,
it seemed only fitting that not only should my first blog be a card created
with one of her designs...
but...
also, that it should be something new...
something special,
something that has not been seen anywhere else before...
So...

Using a digi image that has been sitting on my computer for some time,
one that I have been itching to play with,
I began...

Firstly I got my beloved promarkers and coloured the image..
then cut it out using a craft knife so I was left with a stencil..
Picking a background paper I used the promarker through the stencil
in solid colours to create a shadow effect..
and I used sticky pads to add the image slightly off centre..
That paper was then layered onto another darker paper which I had
placed some black lace around..
This was then stuck to a homemade black card blank....
I finished it off with a mixture of black, silver and purple cord, 
some of which already had beads attached,
which I wrapped around some black feathers...
A sentiment layered onto the same papers was the last addition...

and...
Voila..
