Sharing Is Caring


It is the start of a new month and I am back with my DT hat on for 

As long as you made a card with the May freebie you will automatically get the June image free. If you have not taken part before you can request this month's image so head on over there and join in the fun.

It is a fabulous way to use images from artists you many not have used before. Also sometimes the image is completely different to something you would normally use. It has been a good way for me to stretch my creativity and take me out of my comfort zone. 

I would highly recommend anyone who is not already taking part to jump in and have a go. We are a really friendly bunch at The Outlawz.

This month we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter

We have very generously been given the whole digital set of Sharing is Caring which includes colour and outline stamps plus papers and a finished card all ready to print. I of course love to colour so chose to use the outline stamps.

I selected my papers first. These are from a DCWV 3 drawer set I got from QVC years ago. There was a Spring, Summer & Winter set and it had papers, diecuts, stickers and all sorts of themes. This was from the Summer set. I just love the bright colours.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and pencils in matching colours and added a checked pattern to the tablecloth. The image reminded me of a 50's diner that we visited in Whitby a few years ago and that had checked tables with a black trim. 

The sentiment is a digi that I have printed some time ago. I distressed the edge of the image and sentiment using a small black inkpad.

I added a heart patterned self adhesive ribbon and a glittered chipboard sentiment which I embellished with some tiny brads.

I hope we will see you enter our challenge at The Outlawz and look forward to seeing the entries using this image.
