Jan/12 - Bugaboo Digis - Let Them Eat Cake

I was asked to be a guest designer on Quirky Crafts blog challenge and to use a Bugaboo digi stamp. The theme is "Food Glorious Food". As it turned out I got two digi's. I wasn't that intrigued by the first image, so got one that was more "me". The funny thing is, when I printed the images out on my white card, I really liked both of them, they were clean looking, so hence I made two cards - Big Grin.

The first image I got was the chick holding the cake, and while I was percolating what to do with her, I decided to go "French" and use Quietfire Designs French phrases, Flourished Eiffel Tower & the quote stamp from the Let them Eat Cake set. I paired it  up with a new stamp from Old Island Rubber stamps, the Cafe chair and table (it has two chairs, but I left one off). Everything was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx. I only colored the digi with colored pencils so it would stand out. Added teardrop green rhinestone earrings and green Stickles on the shoes (she definitely needed the glitz BIG GRIN) I liked the clean and fresh look of the white. I added just a touch of edging with Distress my dirty red sponger.

The second image is one I chose and love the quirkiness of the chick... Again I kept the card simple, only coloring the digi with colored pencils and adding a piece of aluminum tape for the stove outline. Used a couple sizes of an alphabet stamp set (Just Rite "Brayton") to stamp the "Let's Celebrate" along the side. The blurb is part of the digi set and then I punched it out with a jumbo Fiskars punch, sponging some Dusty Concord around the edges.

And it also fits for these challenges:

Hi Yogi and happy new year! Thanks for joining us at Opus Gluei with two great cards. I have to admit that the humor of both are right up my alley and these are great digis. I keep hearing a lot of good things about Bugaboo, I really must check them out and take the digi plunge!
