Sailing Fat Page

Fat Pages & Cards With Attitude     Challenge #10-Anything Goes

I picked another digi from Delicious Doodles one of our sponsors this week. If you haven't been over to Delicious Doodles I have to tell you they have such a huge variety of styles. I also have to say I was a little skeptical of digis when I first learned about them, but now that I have learned to manipulate them they have a place in my studio, not only can you use them alone, but you can used them with you regular rubber and clear mount stamps as well. That works for me because I love to meld styles. 
This started as a black and white image. I sized it to fit the Fat Page with just a bit of a border showing, but before I attached it to the Fat Page, I used my new Distress markers to do a watercolor wash effect to give it the feeling of a tinted photo. Before I did the wash the lighthouse was just kind of in the background, but after I finished I noticed that the lighthouse had kind of a glow. I really liked how this turned out.
The quote words that I attached are also a digi and they are from Dilly Bean Stamps, she's one of my new favorite artists right now.
This 4" X 4" format for these Fat Pages is a fun size to work on. Hope you've gleaned some inspiration from my post today and we would love to have you come over and enter at our challenge. We have prizes almost every week and my fellow team mates have some great projects to share with you also.
You have until April 12th to enter. Look forward to seeing some familiar names in the entry list.

Happy Creating--
