Digital Two for Tuesday 48

Wow, almost a year of posts.  It is hard to believe.  It is so much fun to see what the host each week creates with the digital images.  I have learned so much from all of you.  You would never know that I use to be a die hard rubber stamper and would never consider digi stamps as a form of artwork. I think our guest hosts each week prove that statement incorrect and this weeks hostess is no exception.  She has created two beautiful projects using these great old images from the Jordan Marsh catalogue from 1885.  I just love her coloring of these detailed images.  Margie has not been feeling well lately so here is sending her a big get well soon. 

Here is Margie's bio in her own words.   "My name is Margie Overman. I live in Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles.  I love being creative and create work of Art. I use different Art Mediums from Distress Inks to Crayola Twistables to create my work of Art.

I also teach Paper Crafts. I´m an endorsed Paper Craft teacher from Urban Swank teaching Paper Crafts and Home Decorative projects with the gorgeous Urban Lily´s products.

How I created the projects. 
Project 1:
I started with coloring the girls in the Image with Crayola Twistables. I glued the image to a white big card stock and after that I used Glimmer Mist Spray and sprayed the image with the nice sparkling paint. It gives a nice shine to the Image.

Project 2:
I colored the girls with Crayola Markers and also Distress Inks from Ranger with the Ranger paint nibs.  After I glued the image to the card size 5x5 Inches, I punched 2 holes in the card and placed a bow on the card.  As the finishing touch I adhered 2 3D Heart Stickers to the card."
You can see more of Margie's work on her blog. Margie's Creative Projects  I hope you take the challenge this week.  Please link your project in the comments section of this post so we can all be inspired.
