Digital Two For Tuesday 17








So have you taken the challenge? Every week I try to post two images that get your creativity flowing in hopes of seeing some amazing designs. I love to see how many ways an image can be used. This week I have a few images for those of you requesting images for all the men in your life. Our guest hostess Cheryl has certainly taken the challenge. When I first sent her these images I know she was thinking what did I get myself into but Cheryl is a wonderful and creative artist whose work never ceases to surprise and intrique me. So I was glad she accepted the challenge. Here is Cheryl's bio in her words. " I have been crafting for about 2 years,but started to really get into when I became a member of Trimmcraft,and was made ATC maker of the year after only being on there 3months. Then a friend Jude asked me to become one of her design team members,which I jumped at the chance. Then after that I got my own blog and have never looked back.
I am now a DT member for

I have also been published in an American magazine called craft Uk the lady saw my work on my blog and contacted me,and had one of my cards published last month. When Cora asked me to be one of her Guest designers,I jumped at the chance as by finding the blog through a friend,have not looked back since,and have tried to join in each week. Having never used digital images before to create cards with found it really exciting and also a great challenge which i love.
Stamping is my first love followed by Atc's and altered art,adore old images,and vintage. I never thought I would be able to craft as getting into it through watching QVC and through illness,it has opened up a fantastic world of many blogging friends and such talented and kind people,and I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of them.
Hope you like what I have created with the images
love Cheryl xx"




Cheryl's Detailed Directions: I took an A5 card,then used the badge for some backing paper,took some red card slightly smaller than the main card. then adhered it onto the card,printed the badge and added 3d foam pads then mounted it to the top left of the card.
Took the car reduced it in size then cut it out,adhered it onto red card then silver mirror card. Cut out another image of the car and added 3d Foam and attached to the main car. Added some red glass gems to the headlights of the car,then added some glaze to the wheels Finally added Best wishes to the card to finish.
4x4 card
I used backing paper from the autumn collection at http://dezinaworld.blogspot.com/ . Then printed out the badge,and adhered to the card, took smaller images of the sign and adhered with 3d foam. Took 2 chipboard circles,and stamped onto them with a butterfly crafty individuals stamp and added to top of the card. Then printed out smaller image of the car and adhered to the base of the 4x4 with 3d foam pads and stuck to the bottom of the card. Took the words and also added those to the card added some old postage stamps then finished with green glass beads on the chipboard,then used crackle glaze to the chipboard too.
