This week I had to choose a digi from Floppy Latte Designs for my teamie Ali and I to use. Fancying something to go with a CAS card I chose 'Oh Dahlia' which is available from the StitchyBear Digital Outlet.
As I am in the process of creating my craft shopping list (this has been written long before the post <g>) for my return to the UK on repat I discovered something I bought last year to try out. Always on the look out for interesting items after not seeing a proper craft shop for a year is great fun and what I found was Silver Metallic Film which can be used in an inkjet printer or coloured with alcohol ink - oooo those Promarks. As usual, when I got back to Saudi and eventually unpacked and put things in piles so items could be put in there correct locations. Tea bags and crumpets for the kitchen, new clothes for the wardrobe and craft items for the craft room. This pack was hidden under some other rather nice papers I had purchased and totally forgotten about for a year :) :) :) Anyway, I first coloured the image digitally and so as not to waste a whole sheet of this lovely product also included the non coloured digi, then printed. WOW, it looked awesome. I used pale yellow and pale pink for matting and outlined with black self adhesive line stickers. The metallic film with the printed digi and sentiment on were adhered to the card with double sided tape. Next,as I had the second copy of the digi ready I decided to try colouring with my Promarkers which also worked fabulously, actually I think the colouring with alcohol inks is more successful than printing with the inkjet, much brighter. I fussy cut the the dalia I had hand coloured and attached it to the card using foam tape.
