Don't you love berries?!

I know I do! And what I love even more is that they're so easy to download, color and cut out for any project. Because I found these sweet little morsels at Digital-Ink Co.

And wait for it....

I'm on their design team! I got accepted and I only hope I can do these great images justice because the other ladies on the team are phenomenal. Seriously!

Check out the Digital-Ink Co Challenge Blog for great weekly challenges.

The card I created above used Reeces Designs Strawberry Patch, which was one of the freebies last week - and a serious bargain at $1.50! I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #33 for the layout and Ruby Red, Going Gray and Basic Gray on White papers. Prismacolor pencils with gamsol colored my sweet little berries, then I painted on some Shimmerz on one berry and Sakura gel pen to highlight other areas (like the inside of the flower, which of course you can't see because the camera fails to pick up so much of the great glittery goodness we love to use!) I used a signo white gel pen to doodle around the circle and popped the berries on dimensionals. Pretty clean & simple...just my style.

But check out these other ladies, who are oozing with talent!
Boni, Darlene, Diane, Jackie, Jennifer, Kim, Micki, Raquel & Teri! My goal is to one day color and create like these amazing artists!
