Crafty Ann's Challenge No 25

Another fortnight has come and gone and we have seen some lovely creations for the Crafty Ann's Challenge.  The new topic for this fortnight's challenge is "digi stamp and favourite colouring medium".  Your project needs to include at least one digi stamp and please tell us what colouring medium you have used.

Well, this is my second card made for this challenge as I read the challenge wrong to first time and made a boo-boo.  For this card I have used Crafty Ann's new tartan backing papers - aren't they gorgeous - along with some plain white card and some purple Crafty Ann's mottled stone backing paper.  The digital image is one of Crafty Ann's of some gorgeous irises and I have coloured them in with my Promarkers.  The image I have then cut with my my Wizard and a die and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord distress ink pads.  The flowers are also from Crafty Ann's and I painstakingly cut them all out, popped them onto a piece of purple card and then sprayed them with Dawn Bibby's Rosie Ritz Shimmer Spritz and left them to dry.  Why did I put them on a sheet of card you ask?  Well, I now have a sheet of purple shimmery card with shapes of large and small flowers out of it where the flowers were and I've removed them for this card.  For the centres of the flowers I have added some Dawn Bibby's Shine Time clear glaze.  The card is then simply finished off with some ribbon and a Crafty Ann's ticket sentiment.
