Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 18 January 2019

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "NEW BEGINNINGS" eg New Year, new baby, new home, new job or new crafty stash.

This week the Design Team were challenged to "PEARLS OR GEMS".

Here is my inspiration post with that theme.
 For my "just for you" card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Flowing in Blue - Grayscale" (which comes in a set along with Dark Lilies and Hello Spring).  I have coloured the image in with more pastel colours with my Promarkers and and have gone with with the blue/teal colour scheme.

The backing papers are from my stash and I think they are from a Dovecraft set which came with cards, envelopes, flowers, papers, buttons, gems and sentiments.

I have finished the card off with some flowers, buttons, sentiment, gems and pearls.

The Promarkers that I have used are:

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal
Hair - Mustard, Pastel Yellow and Saffron
Dress/moth - Duck Egg, Aqua and Soft Green
Sky - Blue Pearl.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Ally's Angels - Anything goes
Scrapbook Stamp Society - Anything goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything goes
A Bit More Time to Craft - Anything goes
Digi Choosday - Anything goes
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything goes
The Paper Shelter - Digital image
Cardz 4 Galz - Dimensional elements (flowers and gems)
As You Like It - Are you favourites pearls or buttons and why? (As you can see from this card I have used both.  I have to say my favourite would be buttons.  I love to add them to centres of flowers for some dimension.  I have about 10 jars of buttons in lots of colours so I have plenty to choose from to compliment my cards!!  If I am posting cards and I still want buttons I have a die-cut that cuts buttons)
World Wide Open Design Team - Anything goes
