One Stitch at a Time Challenge 48 - Digi Fun!

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're challenging you to have fun with digis!

We have two sponsors this week,
Robin's Nest who're offering a $25 gift voucher

(Creative Craft World) who're offering Five Promakers to some lucky winner.

This week, I had the chance to play with some images from Stitchy Stamps, and when I had a look through the shop, I spotted the ideal images for my daughter's birthday card. (She'll be 17 next month.)
I've used three images, from left to right, Short Shorts, Bashful and Hippie. They're intended to represent my daughter (in the middle) and two of her best pals. One has a tendency to wear shorts that emphasise her already very long legs, and the other isn't particularly a hippie, but she's got very long, straight hair, and the rest has to be left to the imagination! I've added names on the card, but brushed them out of the photo to protect the innocent!

I combined the three images in Photoshop Elements, then printed and coloured with Promarkers. I tried to get three very different skin tones - my daughter, like me, is a west coast Scottish pale, the girl on the left has a much stronger tone, while the one on the right is dark. It's definitely a challenge when I drag myself away from my standard dusky pink/blush/ivory combination!

I shaded the background with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink applied with a shaving brush, and added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The papers are from a Flower Power CD I got from Crafty Emma's.

Hope you can join us this week with your digis! And don't forget to join us at One Stitch at a Time next week because we're One Year Old!
We've got lots of extras in store for the celebration. Don't miss it!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday where they want 'Anything Girlie',
Papertake Weekly where 'Anything Goes plus Flowers'
Lothian Crafts where they want pastel colours,
I Love Promarkers where 'anything goes',
Stamp Something where they're having their February Digital Day,
Totally Papercrafts where the theme is Friendship (My daughter and two best friends.)
Paper Sundaes who want more than one image (three, combined before printing).
CD Sunday who whose theme is 'Friendship' (my daughter and two friends) combined with something from a CD (the background papers).
