ABC Challenge – D is for Die Cut

Welcome to the middle of February and our next ABC Challenge, and this time our challenge is D is for Die Cut and we want you to use your die cuts on your cards. This challenge is sponsored by Di's Digi Designs and Bunny Zoe.

For this challenge, I decided to use this cute dig from Di's Digi DesignsIzzy's Little Donkey. I spent several of my teenage years caring for the donkey's at a local Pioneer Park museum and giving kids donkey rides each weekend. Donkeys will always hold a special place in my heart, and this little image was hard to go past.


I printed Izzy's Little Donkey onto Copic Xpress-it card stock and coloured it in with my copics. The colours I used are: W9, W7, W5, W3, W1, W00, C00, C0, C7, C9, C5, E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, Y28, Y26, Y23, Y21 and Y0000. Here is a closer look:

Instead of using bought flowers, I decided to use a poinsettia made using a die cut. I really like the way this die cut came together - here is a closer look :
