TRYING A NEW FOLD FOR DIGI DARLA’S CHALLENGE

Hey everyone!  Gonna try and make this brief, although I seem to be unable to talk or write lately without going on for hours!  (Wow, my computer has very limited battery life when I unplug it from the wall.)

What do you think of my new blog background?  I thought it was time to get something a little more fall like in terms of colors and theme. 

Anyhow, as usual, I am always discovering and trying to work with different images and new folds and techniques, so the current challenge at DIGI DARLA'S CHALLENGE is to use a fancy fold and I thought I would try a new one.  I saw a creation on Tracy MacDonald’s blog using this fold and it was so adorable, I knew I had to try it.  She calls it a sliding tag card and there is also a Splitcoast tutorial on it, although I have not seen that one.

I used “Lil Lady Wizard” image from DIGI DARL DESIGNS and I have colored her with Copics and Sakura glaze pen and cut with MFT die.  Papers are Bazzill and MFT CS, DP from Basic Grey, Papertrey Ink and Cloud 9 Design.  Ribbon, buttons and flower from my stash.  Eyelet is from We R Memory Keepers.  I added faux stitching using Sakura pen.  Sentiment is from Pink By Design and cut with Lifestyle Crafts die.  Sure hope you like it.

Btw, Digi Darla also has DIGI DARLA STAMP CLUB which offers its members awesome images every week and a whole community forum to discuss tutorials, how to use digis, etc., so you will definitely want to check that out!!
