Well, Digi My World! Anything Goes at For Fun Challenges!

This week I get to share an obsession of mine... Digi My World images!  I'm lucky enough to be on the Design Team at Digi My World, so I'm thrilled to say that they are sponsoring our ANYTHING GOES challenge at For Fun Challenges!

Digi My World opened its doors in April 2011. It was created by Annie Kelly, a self taught artist, crafter and web designer... who has always dabbled in doodling and creating, whatever the craft, from drawing, painting, sewing, doll and pattern making!  All Digi My World digital stamps and clip art are original creations, inspired by the most random and silly things. A long car trip can provide Annie with 7 -10 new mini collection ideas ... it is a wondrous feeling being inspired by the simple things in life! If you are in need of some adorable and original images, please make sure to visit Digi My World. I hope it brings a smile to your face!

The design team created with wonderful images, from a variety of DMW sets.... I used #2 from the Asian Cuties set....

Ingredients: Cardstock - Kaszazz; Papers - Portacraft, Mag freebies; Markers - Marvy Le Plume; Stardust Pens - Sakura; Pearls, Rhinestones, Rubon sentiment - Kaisercraft; Brads - Inque Boutique; Earrings (made by me) - earwires, eyepin, cat's eye chips, chinese coin charm....

I printed this Asian Cutie image twice - on white card for colouring, and on decorative paper.  I have made the image 3D using the base layer, adding the kimono, and ricebowl and hand on top.  I coloured mostly with stardust pens, adding detail to the kimono, chopsticks,  and hair....oh, I used glaze pen for the ricebowl so it looks a little glossy!

In creating the paper layers I used strips to make the vertical accent, and all the aqua/blue you see is from the same paper - a lovely  distressed pattern, so it varies all over!  I created a double sided paper ribbon by adhering two strips together, and tied a knot in it ... with it fixed to the card, the knot made a perfect place to dangle the earrings from, and after taking the earrings from the card, the card still looks complete!
