The Library Challenge - 101 Dalmations



The new Library Challenge  is 101 Dalmations .

As a child, I only saw the film , but I actually read the book to my eldest child and loved it just as much as the film. It was a second-hand paperback - the same cover as the above (which was designed for the first edition), and as we read, the book kept falling apart in my hands!

For my first card, I was inspired by my favourite character - Cruella de Vil. I had a digi stamp by A Day for Daisies and turned her into Cruella by colouring her with markers . I drew a cape around her and added spots with a marker pen. I word-processed 'had a de vil of a day?' and the 'I'm Here for you ' is an MFT stamp , which I heat embossed in white.

I'd like to enter:
As You Like It  My fave colouring medium - alcohol markers as they are clean and you can keep it quick and simple or go for more photo-realistic looks.
Cardz4Galz black, white, 1 bright colour (just her lipstick!)
Addicted to Stamps  make your mark
QKR Stampede  anything goes
Pause Dream Enjoy  anything goes



For my second card I used a stamp by Indigo Blu with lots of dogs on it, and I coloured it with grey and pink markers. 

I'd like to enter:
Watercooler  all about occasions
Fab n Funky  cute critters 
Aud Sentiments  birthday 
Sweet Stampin   animals 


I would love it if you popped over to The Library and entered the challenge.

I love both of these cards, Marina. The way you turned that digi stamp into Cruella was brilliant. The birthday card with that endless number of dogs crammed into it is such fun. Love the way you added some pink to their sweaters to echo the pink in the background layer. Tilting the image layer really adds a lot of additional interest. Love it! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Fun card to receive! I'm also blown away by your other entry with Cruella taking center stage. Great alteration of the digi stamp!
