Today I have a card to share that I made for this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge. The first Monday of each month the challenge is a competition and the winner gets a set of Verve's beautiful stamps. Check out the challenge here.
Anyway, here is the sketch:
and here is my take on it:
I was really happy with the way this turned out, especially since I don't usually make boy cards. All the papers here are digital papers I got from Design House digital. Right now, this kit (called For the Boys) is available absolutely free!!! Go here to get it for yourself : ).
Have you used digital papers before? Its so fabulous because you can print as much as you want on any kind of paper or medium. All you have to have is white paper and a printer and the sky's the limit! No more scraps of wasted paper, you can print several swatches on the same piece of paper and print just enough for your current project. Cricut users, this is totally fabulous because you can just layout your cuts in CCR and then position swatches on paper to align with your cuts. No more loading tons of different papers for each layer you want to cut! Ok, I will stop raving, but if you haven't tried digi papers before, you should start now!
This little teddy is a design by Rivka Williams available on the Silhouette online store. She sells them in sets of four animals. I love how you can group images and define what you want to cut or what you want to print flat. It makes cutting and layering complicated images so easy!
