                 So let's get to it!  My challenge was to create Anything but a card. 


I created a photo album for my husband.  As soon as I saw this digi I fell in love with it and had to use it! The image is called Proud Popa and here is my inspiration photo.  It was meant to be  :)


I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol (an odorless mineral spirits) to blend the color.  Members of the DT will be doing tutorials on coloring with various types of media and this technique will be included.  So stay tuned for those!  I used the Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants dies, the mini heart is from a Verve die called I heart U, large heart die is called Jotted Heart (Verve) and the teal die cut is from a My Favorite Things Die-namics/stamp set called Vertical Greetings.  The black paper is basic Grey called oliver greyson/ver-2702.  I used my Bind-It-All which has been sitting on the shelf for too long!

Here are some of the pics from the album:
