Einstein wannabee???

Hello dear friends,
It is a beautiful spring morning  and as I sit here typing this the birds are going absolutely crazy out in the garden. A wonderful start to the day.
Yesterday had a very noisy afternoon, with our grandson having his 5th birthday party and 10 little 5/6year olds running around making as much noise as possible, but it was great to be part of it and then return home to a quiet evening.

It is once again new release day at  Digistamps4Joyand as usual some stunning digis. The one I chose to work with is 'Einstein wannabee' by Margy.
If you go over to the  BLOG you will see lovely cards made by the DT...they really are stunning.


Here is how I did it.

Paper...created my own background by inking the embossing folder and putting it through open not closed. The embossing is not very deep, but the colour is there.
Image..Einstein wannabe...coloured with distress inks and the jacket is paper pieced, then cut with a cutting die. Added glossy accents on his glasses.
Sentiment...computer generated
Metal charm with twine.

Will enter it in some challenges.
Catch the Bug..September challenge..Anything goes
Blogger's challenge...To die for

Quick Quotes challenge #31...Anything goes
4 Krafty Girls challenge #1...Anything goes

I wish you all a wonderful Sunday and hope the week ahead is a good one. Will see you back soon. Take care.
Warm wishes Ursula

Hi Ursula. You are really good at coloring with your distress inks hey!! I have quite a few distress inks but have never tried coloring with them!! (don't think I'm artistic enough, but I might give it a try sometime!! LOL!!)
Your Einstein is super cool!!
