Our challenge this week was to use one of Elizabeth's new calendar images and to use two or more layers on your project. The image I got to work with is Thinking of 2010, and I thought I'd show it to you as it comes so you can see the possibilities with digital stamps.
I had a few ideas in my mind, but in the end decided on this:
A calendar with removable monthly inserts. I took a wood picture frame and painted it with Acrylic paint, added DP and sanded the edges. The cat was printed out on some of the same DP, cut out and affixed to the frame. Since my printer doesn't work too well on SU cardstock I printed the 2010 thought bubble on my normal white paper, colored it in with RV00 and then added stickles to the outside edges of it. And, since I needed some little bubbles leading up to the thought, I added a few pearls. A flower finished off the frame.
Now for the calendar part....
I added another one of Elizabeth's images to each month. For this particular one, I used Welcome Winter.
I think this will end up on my daughter's desk.
