My First DT Card

Happy Wednesday, today's the day that I have my first DT card.

The prize up for grabs this week is 2 images from Emerald Faeries, and the theme is 'Swirls and Pearls'.

This is the first digital image I've used, it's from Saturated Canary and it's called 'Thank You'. These little darlings are so cute, I was really spoilt for choice, which is why I bought 6, lol. Krista has a free one to be downloaded click here.

I printed her out onto Fabriano 5 paper, and coloured her in with distress inks. I wasn't sure if this would work, which is probably why I've never bought any digi's before. There wasn't a single smudge of ink, so I'll def be buying more digi's.

The paper is from the new release from Bildmalarna, and the brown is Kraft. The swirl die is from Magnolia, available here.

The sentiment die is from Lili Of The Valley, the roses and ribbon are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Once again I've used liquid pearls on my card. I just love how you can have whatever size you want, right down to little diddy ones.

Come along and have a play.


  1. You first DT card is absolutely gorgeous Becky - I love how soft and pretty it is. I have just started to experiment with distress inks so it is good to know I can use all my digi's - although I must try a diffrent paper I couldn't get mine to go through the printer !
