Berry Sweet + Guest Artists

Hello friends! A lovely Sunday blessings to you! It brings me great joy and honor to have two very special guests joining me today for the release of my new digital image for this month. Please welcome my talented and sweet fellow Outlawz DT friends: Liv Ledjdbrandth and Laurian Macdonald. If you are active in the Outlawz Challenges group, then you are sure to recognize Liv's and Laurian's beautiful work. But if this is all new to you, then you are in for a sweet treat. Just wait until you see their project! They will sure to inspire you and help get your creative juice flowing. Please be sure to stop by their blog and leave them some love. Now, here is my first drawing for this month.

This is "Berry Sweet" and you can grab this as a freebie between now until February 21st.  This digi set comes with this adorable little mouse surrounded by strawberries covered chocolate image and the sentiment "You Are Berry Sweet."  I do not sell any of my digis.  If you have missed the direct download period when they are first released, you may obtain them by e-mail request only.

I started the sketch with just the strawberries covered chocolate.  But something was missing. Then the mouse popped into mind.  How?  I have no idea!  I don't even like mice!  LOL.  But it just did.  So, I drew it anyway.  Now here he is.  Isn't he cute?  I then needed a name for this image and finally settled on Berry Sweet.  Berry, short for strawberry and well it's sweet.  So "Berry Sweet." 

And here is my card...

I used the entire set to pull together this quick CAS card late Friday evening.  Then snapped a photo of the finished card on Saturday.  After finished coloring,  I did the unthinkable.  I cut it out, almost snip off the little mouse's whiskers as I do not like leaving white spaces around the image.  Then, I print out another image along with the sentiment, die cut out with the stitch frame and adhesive the colored image over the uncolored.  Fit like a glove!  Next, I applied a couple coats of clear Wink of Stella over the strawberries covered chocolate for a little touch of sparkles, adhesive to the card and wrapped a piece of twine around.

I would like to enter my Berry Sweet card over at the following challenges listed at the end of this post below with first time at Sweet Stampin for their CAS challenge.

Little mouse: C4, C2, C0, R000, RV10
Strawberries: R89, R46, R37, E35, YG00, YG03, YG17, E49, E45, E35, E29 
Copic x-press blending paper & Copic markers
Twine, white/red cardstock, clear Wink of Stella
Dies: Cherry Lynn Designs' Coved Rectangle Stitch Nesting Set

Now for your inspiration from Liv and Laurian...

Liv's card:  Isn't Liv's card stunning?   I just adore how she colored up the little mouse.  He is so cute and her strawberries look so yummy!  The design layout is just amazing and perfect for any occasion.  The "Hello Beautiful" sentiment is not part of this Berry Sweet set, but you can grab it over on my Christina's Digis page.  What a gorgeous card by Liv!  Thank you Liv!

Laurian's Card:  Laurian made my jaw drop with the stunning coloring and blending of the strawberries. Just look how shiny they are! The little mouse is also very cute in this color combination. Laurian named him "Michalus." What a sweet and adorable name!  The die cut sentiment and background papers go so beautifully with the image too!  What a stunning card by Laurian!  Perfect for Valentine Day!  Thank you Laurian!

What an adorable card...and love the smile on Sweet Berry's face, and those chocolate covered strawberries look so delicious...I need to get out and get some chocolate...we almost always have strawberries in the house; but not the chocolate. I missed this and wonder if you can give me permission for a download on this image.
