Candyland Heaven

Good morning friends,
Welcome to Lady Anne's Sentimental Friday! Today we are featuring beautiful digital images by Meljen's Designs. This is one of my favorite digital image sites as her designs are absolutely beautiful. I took her digi called Candy Land Dreams and had a fantastic time coloring and glittering. I printed out two identical 3" images on my Epson Artisan 710. I find that Epson printers are the best for printing images to color with Copics as the ink does not bleed. I print out what I'm going to color the night before I color and let the ink dry overnight. One image was cut apart and I used 3-D foam tape to layer the candy. I colored both the lower and top images with Copic markers then embellished the top image with micro beads and glitter to give it texture and feel. I used peel-off's for the Happy Birthday sentiment.

Hop on over to my DT's blogs which are located on the top right hand corner to see what they have created. I hope you enjoyed this technique and I'll see you all next time.

  4. I love how you did Melissa's digi. I love Meljen's digi's and I can't believe that I don't have this one. You have just enticed me to get another one. What a beautiful work on that card. Hugs, Cathy K
