Use a Digital Image for Back to Basics and Beyond Challenge

Hello Everyone, I hope all is well with you and you are enjoying life.

I'm here with another DT card for Back to Basics and Beyond Challenge no.9 and it's to use a digital image.  I've chosen this beautiful image from Aurora Wings called Heartstrings;
This beautiful lady has been coloured with various coloured pencils, although mainly Prisma Colours. Matted on to black card and then I found some papers from Papermainia that was out a few years ago that was part of a set called Oriental Treasures. I then matted it on to a SU card that suited the colours I'd used. A little bit of sparkle from WOS and some sequins.

We would love you to join the challenge and you can find it here.

Please have a look at the Challenge Blog where there is lots of fabulous inspiration from my DT teamies.

A very elegant lady, and you have coloured her beautifully Kate. I have never used digital stamps our printer doesn’t like anything other than thin copy paper, anything else and it jams up. Xx

She is beautiful and so is your card. I remember when Oriental was all the rage years ago in stamping, and have a drawer full of beautiful stamps, have to look them over, you have inspired me.
