My First Guest Designer Post - Digital Two for Tuesday

Well today is the day for me to be the Guest Designer for the Digital Two for Tuesday Blog.  I am nervous as I am not sure what people will think of my creations but I have given it a go.  This is the first black-and-white image I was given:

The image has been imported into My Craft Studio (MCS) and I put some frames around it and a backing sheet from Walk in Wonderland and printed out.  The image I coloured in with Promarkers and used Sakura Clear Stardust pen (no700) to accent the image in places and I did some faux stitching around the edges of the frames.  I rubbed a piece of Coredinations card stock with an emery board to age/distress and then scraped along the edge with a craft knife to distress it/make it ragged.  I did the same with the digital image sheet.  The Coredinations card stock I stamped around with a Kay Carley flourish stamp and Crimsen Red Versafine.  I then wet the edges of both sheets with Versamark then put on gold embossing powder and heated it up.  I then put the card together with a bow pinched from a box of chocolates we haven’t even eaten yet (don’t tell on me!!!), some glittery gemstones, some card candy and finally some lace with was originally white but didn’t fit in with the colour scheme so I coloured in with my Umber Promarker.

This is the second black-and-white image I was given:

I found four different but toning backing colours in My Craft Studio and layered it all up.  I added a flourish in each corner and then placed the flower image in the middle.  I then printed it out and coloured in the image with Promarkers using a mixture of pinks/light purples for the flowers and I used a gold Sakura pen for the stamens.  I then printed out the backing paper from an Artylicious Damask Delights CD onto a purple pearlescent paper which made it very feint but this was the effect I wanted.  The main image was decoupage and then put on some gold mirror card and 3d foam pads to elevate for more dimension.  The card was then finished off with some card candy, a ticket sentiment and some purple fibres.
