Peaches for Digital Tuesday

Happy Tuesday!!

It's time again for a new challenge at Digital Tuesday and this week it's Amy's turn to host the challenge. The theme she chose is:


Use a paper doily or make your own with a doily die. Hope you'll join us as we have a fabulous prize up for grabs from

My Grafico.

Since I really wanted to play in this week's Digital Pencils Challenge I decided to use an image from Mo Manning. This image is called "Peaches". I just love this, it's got to be one of my all time favorite images/stamps.

Here is my card.
I colored the image with derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. Copics for skin tones.
Papers are from Stampin Up, I thought I'd use the new Calypso Coral from stampin up as my card base and mats, plus butterflies. I think it goes well with the designer paper even though the colors don't match. I love this designer paper too, too bad I am almost out of the pack, and it is retired.

I embellished with a prima flower, button and silver cord. The butterflies were done using a Martha Stewart punch. To finish it off I did some machine sewing.

Here is a close up of the colored image.

Here are all the combined challenges:
And that should be all for today. Hope you'll join us, all you have to do is create something using a doily somewhere in your design, and don't forget to use something digital.

Have a great day!!

Wow Ellie! This is gorgeous! The doily is the perfect added touch with the image because of the trim on her apron. The colors are fabulous and I love your coloring of the image.
