DTC #63 - Easel Card

Welcome to another Digital Tuesday Challenge. This week Anneke is our hostess and she wants to see some Easel Cards. How fun!! This was actually my first easel card that I actually completed. I tried it before but somehow it just didn't work.

For this card I followed the exact measurements that Beate used on her splitcoast stampers tutorial. I had so much fun making it!!



My image is from Phindy's Place. Isn't this image the cutest!!
I colored it using copic markers. I used a white prismacolor pencil for some highlights.
Designer Papers are from DCWV and Stampin Up. For my card base and other trims I used some confetti kraft cardstock from Stampin Up.

The card was kept pretty simple. I only embellished with a couple of punched borders, a couple of buttons and glitter. I tried to add some prima flowers but somehow it never looked right so I just left them off. Sentiment is from stampin up.



My card also fits into a few other challenges:

We have a new sponsor this week, Robyn's Fetish. They are giving away 2 of their cute digis to one lucky winner. To have a chance at winning all you have to do is make an easel card, but don't forget to use a digistamp too.

Have a great day!!
