DPDC17 -- Maize Corn


Good Morning, everyone,  It's the fifth of the month and time for another Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge (DPDC17) on the Doodle Pantry Blog. The theme is use a Doodle Pantry image (not just a sentiment).  If you don't have a Doodle Pantry image, just go to the "freebies page" and download one for free.   To view the challenge details , prize information, and to see this month's free digital image that all challenge participants will receive,  click here.  

For my card, I used images from the Maize Corn set.  I merged 3 ears of corn to form a swag, and with the help of Copics colored the ears to look like Indian corn.  Then I went over my image with a VersaMark Pen and embossed with clear embossing powder.  To finish my design, I added 2 jewelry spacers, and made an embellishment for the 'corn swag' that started out a single stalk of wheat by Jolee's.  I added some hemp behind the wheat and tied the elements together with some linen thread to give it more dimension... Just had to attach it to my card and I was done.  

I will also be entering my card in the following challenges:
Anything Goes Challenge #51 --  Die Cuts/Punches 

Sure hope you join in the fun. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
