Digital Elements - Through The Purple Haze Challenge

This week the challenge theme at Through The Purple Haze is 'Digital Elements'. The sponsors for this challenge are:



Milk Coffee Stamps

 If you go to you can sign up to their mailing list and get access to four freebies. I chose to make a card with the pink and purple girly kit.

Rather than just cut out the elements as they were, I decided to print two of the same sheets on matt photo paper so that I could add another layer to the background and make the purple band and backing more of a feature. I also got out my can of iridescent spray and sparkle and sprayed the purple back layer, her hat, shoes, pink top and jeans for added glitz (I masked off the jacket to glitter just the pink top)

I then cut out the sentiments and layered them in a star like pattern , using the 'Happy Birthday' for the top (I actually originally printed on centura pearl but it didn't give the look I wanted so the back two squares are actually on centura pearl so fainter)

I finished off with some gems from Kaisercraft in the bottom right corner. 

I really liked making this and although I added extra layers (there are six in total) the foam squares used were in varying thickness and do squash down so its not bulky.

I also made a card using an image from our other sponsor, Milk Coffee Stamps. I chose a sweet fairy with a cupcake. 

I brought a lucky dip of scrapbook papers from Affix Crafts a few weeks ago and inside my pack I had this lovely cupcake print sheet which also had the border (used at the bottom). The paper is matte with shiny cupcakes. I added a Kaisercraft tag and added a sentiment I cut on my Cricut Mini. I added in some flowers I cut and decorated the center with some shiny beads (I forgot when I took the picture but the glue hadn't completely dried when I took the photo but it dried clear after a little while). The spoon on the image is silver foiled so it looks lovely and shiny in the flesh - and I also added glitter detail to the wings to give a bit of sparkle.

Why not head over to Through The Purple Haze and check out what the other DT members have made. Don't forget to grab your freebies from and enter our challenge.
