Pushing my luck!

I may not be as old as Stella over here, but this sentiment is so true when it comes to me, cause this is exactly how I exercise, lol!

This is one of the digital images I bought recently from Bugaboo Stamps (thanks Jeanie for introducing me), and her name is Stella Push my Luck. I love these images, and as mentioned before I had to take some out of my basket when I was shopping for her. I do prefer to have rubber when it comes to images, don't ask me why cause the digis work perfectly. Maybe it's just that you can feel what you got for your money, I don't know. BUT, if anyone has not tried a digital image and have been thinking about it, then I can only say go and try it, there is nothing to be afraid of, lol.

I have decided to enter this card in the Catch The Bug Challenge. The theme is April Showers, and you have to use the sketch, which was the easy part, but the April Shower part not quite that easy. I decided to apply my image this way, Stella is avoiding a sweaty 'April shower' by not doing any exercise. Does that count, rofl!!! See I'm pushing my luck, aren't I!?

Nothing new to tell you about the making of this card. I coloured it with my prisma pencils, blended it with Sansador (gamsol), speaking of which, I bought a new bottle today and was it expensive, man alive. I better not knock this one over, twice!, like the last one. I cut the image with a nestie long rectangle die and layered it on a scalloped mat. I added some glaze with my sakura glaze pen to her glasses. (The photos never show that though, but it makes the glasses look so good in real life.)

Lastly, this card is going to my mom for mother's day. Either from my sister or myself, I am still making another, but not with a Stella. I will let my sister chose which card she wants to give my mom, but I have a feeling it's going to be this one. Who can avoid Stella's charm.....


Till next time then.
