THE LITTLE THINGS ...

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #74}

Another design team project for our bi-weekly challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.74 is ANYTHING GOES.  Now it cant get any easier.  Our talented design team leader and owner of DigiStamps4Joy, Margy is hosting this challenge.  Thanks Margy for choosing this awesome theme for us this fortnight.

Another centre step design.  I have used the MOMMY'S GIRL (rhino family) digi from DigiStamps4Joy and you can find it here . I have also used the KAROO WATER digi and you can find it here as well as the HOME RELOCATION (dung beetle) and you can find it here.

The images and sentiment have been coloured with Copics and dry chalks.  The sky on the scenery has been coloured with dry chalks using a masking technique.  The design papers are from Basic Grey and My Minds Eye - Wild Asparagus. The sentiment was coloured with dry chalks and is a freebie from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The corner embellishments were created by folding pieces of paper squares.

Looking forward to seeing your ANYTHING GOES creations. So hop on over to DS4J's Challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #74.




Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:

A big welcome to my new Followers, hope you will enjoy your visits here.  Also thank you to my loyal and faithful followers who always leave such wonderful inspiration here for me to feast on.  Love you all.

  27. Hi, Desire! It truly IS the little things that make life so remarkable, isn't it? Love the dung beetles - especially appropriate for wildlife on your continent. Your cards always are so full of symbolism. Every component works together so beautifully. This is a lovely card because of what it speaks so clearly AND, yes, of course, your Desire artist style :-) hugs, de
