A DARING new Digi....

...at least for me!

Hey peeps!  I'm really getting into some of the "edgier" looking stamps lately-like those new Kraftin Kimmie ones I just LOVE and I've seen a few others I think are super cool!  Of course, we have our own share of "goth-y" images over at The Greeting Farm and there is a BRAND NEW DIGI, "Goth Roxy" that is NOW available at the store!  The UBER talented Janet McDonnell has not one, but THREE new digis that are geared toward teens and they're all available NOW!

This week, my sweet DD Madelynn has another SKETCH CHALLENGE for you, for this week's DIEDRICH DARE!!!  Here it is:


For my card, because I was so set on wanting to work with this particular digi that I kind of tweaked the sketch by putting the circle behind the main panel as opposed to inside it.


I colored Roxy up with my Copics and came up with the sentiment "I'm only as tough as my Teddy" and then printed it out on cardstock.  Hope you enjoy!

Be sure to check out the other DAREDEVILS this week and see what they've been up to:
Thanks so much for stopping by!  See you soon :)

Jess ..... no way..... this is so FREAKIN cute. I love this "egdy" stamp but I have to say that I didn't like it nearly as much until I saw it on your card. You have colored her perfectly, especially the color palette you used. I just wanna hug this goth baby!! Hugs.

Oh what a STUNNER of a card. When I pulled up your blog and saw it, I literally said "Ohh!" out loud. Beautiful coloring and the sponging on the embossed panel gives it such a dramatic effect!
