Twirly Heart

I have a couple of fun things to tell you. First of all, I am pleased to report that I will be guest artist for CS Designs in February. I really admire Chris's distinctive artsy images, and look forward to seeing what her images inspire in me.

Second, I want you to know that they are posting the February Freebie Digis at Crafter's Digital Art Center. There are a lot of fun, free images to try, but the one I thought I would try first was this heart, which of course is from CS Designs.


I had several ideas about what I wanted to do, but when I reached for a sheet of paper to print it out, this idea popped into my head - what would happen if I printed it on black paper?  Well, the image was visible at an angle, if I managed to get the light to hit it just so, so I grabbed my souffle pens and tried tracing the lines.  My hand wobbled a bit, so I started doodling to cover my wobbles, and the next thing I knew, I had this heart.

The translucent layer of pink that you see on the card is crepe paper - it gives a fun, ruched texture.  The sentiment is cut with a cuttlebug die.

Challenges (besides the CDAC ones!):
Prairie Fairy - for a sweetheart
Charisma Cardz - Valentine
Delightful - have a heart
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - swirls
Color Dare - pink, pear, plum
Cheerful Stamp Pad - Valentine
Digi's by Phooka - love is in the air!
