LIVE YOUR LIFE {DigiStamps4Joy New Release}

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: NEW RELEASES}

A design team project for our  new releases over at DS4J's shop this Sunday.  I have used this beautiful image from a very talented designer, who recently joined the team of artists at DigiStamps4Joy.  Most South Africans would have heard of Tanya O'Connor's very popular colouring books for adults.  This image is called  Strong Lady 4.

Hop over to DS4J's blog and have a look at the gorgeous creations  my talented design team mates have created with some of the wonderful new release images.

The design papers, brads and buttons are from my stash. The image has been  coloured with Copics.  The flower flourishes have been created with a punch.  The folded embellishments have been created with circle punches,

The beautiful sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  


Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
