Digistamps4Joy - New release

Good morning everybody. This is so exciting, my first DT post for Digistamps4Joy. Its a new release and there are some amazing new images on offer. Hop on over and have a look. The one I got to play with is by the super talented Jen Leeflang and she is called Tatoo Cutie. 
She was coloured with my beloved Copics. I decided to use a circle die to cut her out, but the biggest one I had was too small, so I had to make a plan. I cut around the scroll at the bottom of the image and lifted it over the die before I cut it.
After she was cut out, I embossed the edge and used my chalks to soften the background. The sentiment was stamped with Tuxedo Black Mimento ink and is a freebie that came with a magazine.
 I cut the shaped card with my Silhouette. All the edges were inked and the scroll dies were glitterified. I love me some glitter on a card. I popped a doily behind the image and used some pop dots to lift the image. The flowers are all from my stash. Some came all the way from Wild Orchid Crafts and others are courtesy my local Chinese craft warehouse. The lace has been in my stash for years and the little piece I had left was just enough to fit on the card.
I love the end result. She is going to a very special group of girls to thank them for a very special gift of love.
When you read this I will be in Cape Town having a long weekend with hubby and friends. We are off to see Chris de Burgh. I will be back on Monday to check if I have scheduled this right. If not, I blame it on old age and technology that does not always play well together. If it worked, well, then I am just brilliant, aren't I?
