CHALLENGE #20 : "On the wings of a ..." and a DT CALL

FIRSTLY, we'd like you all to know that we're having a DT call ...

We will soon be one year old, and we are looking for a new team to work with our diverse variety of images. Please send an email to jen @ jencraft . co . za (without the spaces...) with a brief description about your yourself, your blog link if you have one, and 2 -3 examples of your best work. Please also let us know which medium you like to use. Digistamps 4 Joy has fortnightly challenges, and all we ask of you is to design an inspiration card for each challenge, post it on your blog, and comment on the challenge entries. We'd like you to be active on the DS4J group on CDAC, and participate in the various events, blog hops and challenges, etc., that DS4J is involved in. And for that we will provide you with the images and necessary support that you require. No real hard work, just a lot of FUN!

And now on to the challenge:

Spring/Summer brings us lots of wings ... butterfly wings, bird wings, aircraft wings for those of us going on summer holidays, and for those of us fortunate enough, fairy wings!

For this new challenge, we would like you to create a papercraft project featuring.........

One random winner will be chosen ( to win 3 images of choice from the store.

We will then have a DT's choice award. This award will go to the the card / project that we vote to be our favourite (and must be a digistamps4joy image). This winner will receive a $6 gift voucher to spend in the store.

You do not need to use a Digistamps4Joy image to win.
We will choose 2 runners-up who we feel deserve a spot in the top 3.

Challenge Rules
You can use any image for the challenges. See above.
You have two weeks to enter the challenge.
Your entry must be new. No backlinking to previous posts.
Please link back to Digistamps 4 Joy blog.
Projects that do not follow the theme will not be entered into the draw.
Please use the Inlinkz to link to your CARD/ PROJECT only, please don't link to your entire blog.
You may combine this challenge with other challenges.
If you don't have a blog then please load your card/ project into the gallery on the website, and link to that.

The most important rule, however, is to have fun!

Here are the Design Team's Creations for your inspiration ...

Audrey has used DARK ANGEL - and embellished with a fabulous stitched flower

Gemma's card featuring the BUTTERFLY image is coloured in refreshing blues and lilacs

Jan's card with FUNKY FAIRY has beautiful sparkle on the wings

My card, (that's me, Jen) with the image called FUNKY FAIRY, WAKE UP EMILY, has a flower embellishment Copic coloured to match the colour scheme of the card

And then as a bonus for you, we have three GUEST DESIGNERS, each of whom have used the same image, just to show how totally different yet equally stunning the creations are!




A click on each of the GDT's names will link you through to their blogs where you can leave them some love.

We can't wait to see what you create for the challenge.
