dare you to digi stamp challenge card


Hello! the card I have to show you today I tried a new technique for me,(crystal effects-guess I really should have used a paintbrush like the directions said instead of trying to improvise with a q-tip!) and as you can see I need more practise -but thought I would show it anyways. I made this card for the dare u 2 digi stamp challenge (found here)which this week is -"things with wings". So, I have used my little duckie,as he has wings! You can find this adorable little guy over at Squigglefly (found here)he is called "Rainy day duckling-Jacob"
*****DONT FORGET*****

One a day in may starts May 1rst which is only a couple more days!!! SQUIGGLEFLY has a new deal going where you can preorder the May images (yes-ONE A DAY -NEW IMAGES!!!!) now for only $30!!! that is less than .99 cents a piece!!!
**PLUS ***to make it even sweeter HOLLY (found here) and STEF (found here) have made the deal even sweeter by both of them adding a chance of winning some super extra prizes -just for telling them you purchased the one a day in may-so go on...purchase the deal and then get over to Holly's and Stef's and let them know!!
****edited to add-**** oh guys, I did use rain dots too-I used the crystal effects on his boots and jacket-and then stickles on top, and as you see-I smudged the stickles too(not purposely-forgot they wouldn't be dry yet and turned the card upside down on the table-yi-yi-yi!!!

Rhonda I don't know what you're talking about needing more practice with the crystal effects. I think the crystal effects are perfect! So perfect that I'd swear you had bought some little tear shaped rain dots! I also like the stickles on the rain gear!
