DeeDee's Digis - Daniel's Sweetheart

Hi...

Back with a very quickly made card using a sweet DeeDee's Digi image. What I really like about these digi images, besides the fact that all of them are so doggoned cute, is that you can be as simple or elaborate as you chose, using them in your cards. I'm a slow card maker, so when I can put something together, fairly quickly, then I'm a happy card maker. And I don't want it to look like I did it quickly either.

 
 
- DeeDee's Digi Daniel's Sweetheart precolored image, but I did a bit of shading using copics & multi-liner pens. The set comes with some nice sentiments, but just now birthday cards are needed at my house. A niece & I share a birthday, so I think this one's going to Julie. She's really a "bear" person, but I think she'll like Ducks too.
 
Die cut with a SWilson Canadian Collection - Vancouver(CED6205), the largest open die. Shaded with Memento Summer Sky & and a Hero Arts xxxxxx.
 
Traced outer part of the SW die & fussy cut to create a scant mat from a white snippet. Decided that the mat needed color. Spritzed mat with water, sprayed some Lindy's Stampgang Starburst spray (Water Poppy Teal) and while still wet, sprinkled some Brusho Ultra Marine watercolor crystals onto the mat. I must say that the prettiest part of the marbling was - of course - right in the center. Usually die cut the portion underneath away, and use for another time. So there's a lovely piece to use on another project.
 
- Scored lines around all 4 edges of the white card base.
 
- Impression Obsession sentiment die cut from white snippet, colored with Copic B45 - layering to get the shade of blue needed. Added 2 blue rhinestones over the i's.
 
Can't get any easier than that! And fun to do as well. Hope you will like it.
Thanks for your visit, check out these great digi-s, where there is a Show us Bright and Colorful  challenge going on just now. Blessings.
 
Linking to The Snippets Playground Week 178 & 179. C'mon along & say Hello to my little buddy Parsnip. He's very friendly.

Awww, these quackers sharing a soda is beyond cute, and I love that they're both wearing those cute boots! I wish we still had some of those old soda shops were we could share a coke or an ice cream soda! This is just too cute!

Brenda in IN said...

I love the duckies sharing their coke. Such a sweet image. I like what you did around the die cut. Those blue shades look so nice with the yellow. You did a fantastic job of shading on both the ducks and die. I like a quick card too, but I can't seem to make one. I fuss too much.

Awww, this is a super cute card Momma Mary! I love those cute ducks sharing a soda together, it's just to sweet! also love your background mat with the Lindy's Stampgang spray and brushos, so pretty! I think you made this CAS card so cute and fast! But it looks like you took a lot of time with it. I am really glad that I'm not the only one who takes forever to make a card. lol Hugs, Brenda

What a sweetie this is Mary - I am looking forward to seeing how you use the centre of the backing panel - it sounds so pretty from what you say, and the edges are lovely.

What little sweeties Mary, your use of colours on this one works a treat and the little chicks really pop out from the page against the subtle hues of blue.

Hope you have a good Sunday.

Donna Hanley said...

Cute, cute, cute. Love this idea of sharing a soda pop with a loved one. You did a marvelous job with this darling image. Love the scoring and sponging. Enjoy your day.

Marilyn said...

Too cute! Love those ducks

Bonnie said...

This is such a sweet card, Mary, and it doesn't look like a quick card! I love how you shade the precolored images. It brings so much depth to the design! Who wouldn't love this card (even if they are a bear person)?

Sandy said...

No fair! I am very partial to ducks especially baby ducks!
We do love our new home ~ it's still amazing to me to have the ocean so close. We do have a neat restaurant close to us. We like eating on the patio which is really right on the beach and you can watch the beautiful green waters roll into shore. Sadly we had a drowning yesterday. At the risk of sounding mentally ill, we were at this restaurant having a beer and had quite view of recovery efforts. Several police boats, a guy on a jet ski, and a Coast Guard helicopter. To my knowledge, as of this morning, the body has not been found.
Now that was a long howdy starting with your cute little ducks.

So cute Mary, love the image and your colouring, great card, hugs Kate x

Donna Ellis said...

Wow! Mary, you have been so creatively prolific! I have enjoyed each one of your beautiful masterpieces this month - so pretty, colorful, cute, vibrant, lovely, Christmasy, patriotic, and so much more! Each card is using wonderful techniques - I so wish I lived nearby to play with your creative fingers teaching my own. Truly wonderful.

I am beginning to feel a little better. Still difficult to use my fingers, as my hand-eye coordination is very poor, and the fatigue is exhausting! LOL But I can sit up now for brief periods of time, and enjoy doing some things around the house. I have missed you and your pretty cards very much. love, de

Really cute little ducks Mary and cut with a very pretty shaped SW die,and this would also make a lovely anniversary card. I adore the colour of the underneath layer and you have sponged some beautiful blue ink on the image mat too which highlights those ducks perfectly. Hope you have had a good weekend. x

Donna said...

Adorable card, Mary! DeeDee's images are the cutest.

This is a fun and really cute image. Your brusho technique is wonderful (as always). I dare not buy anything new as my room is stuffed to the gills now!

Great card, Mary!
