Here's the scoop


     I'm very honored to be featured at Delightful Challenges today.  I was chosen as one of the Top picks last week and was asked to be a Guest Designer.  I got to play with this little cutie who is one of the new summer release images.  I'd like to thank Leslie and the powers that be for putting me in the spotlight.  I thought I was going to be playing along with the DT for the new challenge.  LOL
     The image is called "Ice Cream Roxy" and you can find it in the Digital Delights by Louby Loo shop.
     I got lucky and found the ice cream paper in one of my paper pads from American Crafts.  I colored Roxy and her summer accessories with Copics and added some white gel pen dots to her umbrella and Glossy Accents to her shades.  I did a bit of texturing with a terry cloth and some colorless blender solution but it didn't work as well as I would have liked.  I think I need to find a cloth with a bit more fluff to it.
     You can hop over to the Delightful Challenges blog and check out my Guest Designer feature.
