Mid Month Inspiration at JDS

Popping in with a reminder that the September Anything Goes challenge is still going on at Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge and you have until Oct. 4th to enter for the chance to win images from the Jan’s Digi Stamps store! And if you use any of Jan’s images in your project, you have an extra chance to win! Here in GA we’re getting a taste of Fall, but I’m still clinging onto the last days of summer!

Today’s card features an accessory image from the Beach Friends set:

Cute, right? I love how Jan’s sets come with extra images that can either enhance the main image, or hold up on their own as the focal image! I enlarged the b/w version of the cocktails to fill an A2 card front, added the sentiment, and printed on bristol paper. I die cut the panel with a Pink and Main rounded rectangle die. The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils, smoothed with Gamsol, and then highlights were added with a white gel pen. I added jewels from Trinity Stamps for a finishing touch. I love how they reflect back the colors used in the coloring! Here is a close up:

I would be so happy if you were to head over to the Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge site to see what the rest of the team created and to enter your latest creation to our Anything Goes challenge where truly anything goes… cards, layouts, knitting, pottery, jewelry, sewing, baking… anything!

Thanks so much for dropping in today to view my card. Your visits and comments mean the world to me. Especially during Covid, it can feel like you are in a bubble and isolated from the world. Sharing my projects is much more enjoyable when I know someone else has enjoyed seeing it!
