This week is my first week on the Design Team at Jackson's Digital Expressions!
I'm am very exited to be on the team!

Robert Jackson has a wonderful collection of digital images, some real fun ones and some really beautiful images. I'm already enjoying playing with what I have received! Do visit the shop and feast your eyes!

The first card I made is a card in the CAS style. I'm using Robert Jackson's Vintage Hat V. I coloured it with my pencils (Various, watercolour and regular). I blended it lightly to keep the idea of texture on the hat and the jacket. The image was then layered on mirror board and royal blue card.

The background was created by using Penny Black Antique Pattern. (circa 2000!) inking it and stamping second and third impressions, not pressing very hard. That is to give that sort of faded, worn look, I hope. (LOL). Well, you can decide on this one.

I also added some beads on a piece of nylon thread that I wrapped around the card. The bottom bead was glued to the card. The beads are quite big, but I just like them with the card and it did remind me of the times when we did wear those large beads. In the end it creates a vintage feel.

The challenge at Jackson Digital Expressions is a Month Long Party where Anything Goes. There are weekly challenges on specific themes and there is a weekly draw for some fabulous images. So do pop over and add your fabulous creation! Hope to see you there

PS. This post is a bit late. I had some issues with my PC...took some time to sort out, also a bit inconvenient. But I'm back online!
