Digi Doodles Guest Designer for July - Clean & Simple

This is my second contribution as Guest Designer for July for Digi Doodles Shops Best Challenges and this week the challenge is:

Clean and Simple

I've used the wonderful Special Delivery digi stamp and coloured him with Promakers plus a little glitter glue on the icing on the cupcake.

I used a roll of double sided tape for the shape as it was the perfect size and I deliberately had the leading foot coming out of the shape. A little bit of inking around the edges and I've dotted a line around the edge of the card and image shape. The red card is from my stash and I've had it for ages! It's the sort of card that never seems to get less and I'm sure the sheets I have are secretly multiplying!

Hope you can join in with the challenge this week - good luck! For more details, please pop over to the challenge blog and see the Design Team samples!

My card fits the following challenges:

Clear It Out Tuesday: Anything Goes
Incy Wincy: Black and White and One Other (mine is red)
Our Creative Corner: Photo Inspiration and no Printed Papers (red building as my inspiration)
  • Image: Digi Doodles, coloured with Promarkers
  • Everything else: My stash


  1. Hi Ruth, I love this card and your colouring of his apron is perfect. I find colouring with red so difficult.


  2. This is such a funny looking chef. My son-in-law is a chef, but not working in the business right now, and this reminds me of him (not his looks - lol). You did an awesome job with your coloring. Hugs, dj

  3. Great CAS card Ruth - I love this image and you have coloured him perfectly.
