Yah! It continues!! CDAC #7

The challenge goes on. I am so glad! It has been fun and some months TRULY a challenge. I was SO pleased with all of the images for this round. Come on over and check them out at the Crafters Digital Art Center!!
The image I chose for this round was from Tiffany Doodles.
She has some really great images and I was so glad that she gave us this little crab to work with. I was totally unsure about what direction I was going until I remembered the image a purchased from Mo Manning recently. I love this little beach gal and she really needed a pal! The crab worked perfectly. I put REAL sand in her bucket and by her feet. She is mostly colored in with chalks and some markers from the Martha Stewart collection. I want to give a BIG shout out to all those who chose and contributed the images for this round. I know most people DO celebrate the holidays. However, there are some of us who do not and I was thrilled to have images to choose from that were NOT holiday themed. I hope this continues to be the case for the rest of the challenges. What fun!!

The Final CDAC Challenge.. #6

Wow..its so sad. It's over! But it has been a lot of fun. A challenge getting projects done.. but I did it! It was a good challenge for me though. I loved it. I hope you were able to play along! I loved this bear image! It is from Designed2Delight. I thought he had the sweetest look. I made the background image from chalks and a rubber stamp with pine trees on it. I then used spray glue and attached a dryer sheet to the background and added InkXpressions pastel blue stamping glitter and rubbed it into the dryer sheet. If you have never done this I HIGHLY recommend trying it. It gives a WONDERFUL snowy effect. You will have to use really good adhesive to get the image to stick on top of the dryer sheet. I used sticky dots - but will need to reinforce with Glossy accents. My snowflakes are actually a dollar punch from Michaels that is a flower. I just glittered them and hoped for the best!! This was great fun and although everything around my house is glittery right now (including my husband..hehe).. It was worth it!! Enjoy and come visit the CDAC Progressive Challenge site to see some more wonderful creations!!
