WOO HOO My First DT Post for Inky Impressions with an Easel Card

Hi all, I am so excited, I just can't hide it (now you will be all singing that song today lol!  The day is finally here for my first Inky Impressions DT Post !!  The Inkettes and Inky Dude were given this gorgeous digital image 'Rachael's Gingerbread Christmas' isn't she just gorgeous!   I am still in the theme of non traditional Christmas colours so we have a purple tree lol!  All the baubles have been coloured using Spica Pens then special effects added also to the lights. Rhinestones for extra sparkle.  And yes I have used a paper dollie.

Side view to show you the layers and sparkles from Kindyglitz and Glimmer Mist Dazzling Diamonds. I also made the ribbon bow.  There are copic coloured pearls on the tree to.  Now after I had coloured and layered this cute image I decided I wanted to cut it out now that was tricky around the layered parts lol!

How cute is that pooch.

Now our challenge is 'CHRISTMAS' we would love to see your creations using the theme Christmas our challenge will run for two weeks.  We the new DT can't wait to see your creations!  Don't forget to pop on over the Inky challenge blog and see the wonderful creations the DT have made.
