CDAC Entries

Wow time sure does fly! It's been a month since my last post. I have been sooo busy this quarter that I nearly forgot to do my CDAC entries. This is a great site for those of you who like to use digi images. They have challenges and offer free images when you compete them. This quarter's images were really great. The problem with forgetting to complete the challenges-no free images next quarter. I worked really hard yesterday after getting back from Yellowstone National Park (was gone nearly 2 weeks) and got three cards finished.

This first one is for the Inspirational Challenge:

You have to use a digi image for this challenge. The boat on the front is a stamp from Stampendous, but the lighthouse is a digi image. I can't remember who the artist is-I will edit this later and add it. The boat is stamped with ink from Close to My Heart. I added embossing powder to the waves and Tim Holtz Stickles Clear Rock Candy dry glitter that I colored black with alcohol ink to the smoke. The lighthouse is colored using copics. The inside saying is from My Daily Bread and the outside sentiment I believe is from KC Andrews. The boat on the inside is from a stamp set that I just got yesterday at card class. I cut out the boat and popped it up. I added Stickles to the light from the lighthouse to make it shine.

Here is the link to the challenge:

The next image is for the Progressive Challenge. It has 4 images that you can get, but since I forgot to do it I will be lucky to get 2 of them.

The image is from Nana Vic and can be bought from her store at the CDAC website. I colored it with copics and sprayed it with PK Glitz Garnet Ritzy Ditz. I colored the the dots and scalloped edge with copics and covered them with crystal stickles. I used silver stickles to the handle and pointed top. I colored white jute to match to make the bow. The sentiment is printed on the computer and cut with a Tim Holtz die. The stones on the sentiment are from Annabelle Stamps. I think they are called Sprinkles and are the 6mm ones (they have different sizes). The DP is from My Minds Eye. I can't remember the brand of copper cardstock, but it has a glimmery sheen to it and really shines.

Heres the link to this challenge:

My final card is for the 1-2-3 Challenge. You have to use 1 sentiment, 2 DPs, and at least 3 embellies.

The owl images were again provide by Nana Vic. The tombstone is just one I found online and printed off. The sentiments were done using MS Word. I clicked on add shape and found a conversation balloon that looked like a cloud. I filled them in with color and typed what I wanted. This card is for my sister's 40th birthday. The second image is the inside of the card. The images were colored with copics. The embellies used were jute, rhinestones, and crystal lacquer. It was like 3 am when I finished this and didn't wait for the insides to settle. As you can see, the jute didn't stay in place. Oh, well-live and learn right? The DPs are both from My Minds Eye and they were mounted to black cardstock.

I also found The Scrapbooking Queen's challenge "Anything Goes" and Die Cuttin' Divas "Birthday w/ 3 Embellishments" . I am entering this card in them as well.
Here are my final links:
