U Shine.

Hello World. I am actually at work whilst your reading this. Clever technology isn't it! Speaking of technology - I love this Lightbulb image from Dr Digi. And guess what... IT IS FREE!!! RESULT!

You could use this image for so many occassions - New Home, Passing exams, Valentines or any celebration.

I really wanted the colours to jump off the page so I used a matt black background. Its a great way to use up scraps of paper. And being a Digi image - you can print it to whatever size you need. The big bulb I printed onto Mirri card first and stuck with 3D foam to make it stand out a little more. The smaller bulbs I used silver pen rather than Mirri and glued them to the base. I used a white pen to add the edges, the light cords and also to give the bulb a shine.

I added some Doodlebug letters to say "U SHINE" and finished it off with some co-ordinating twine.

Make sure you take a look at the other images in the Dr Digi shop - All the Bits and bobs are great additions to your crafty collection.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
ABC Challenge - O is for Open (ATG)
Cards in Envy - A2 Birthday.

  6. Love the hanging lightbulb idea. What a fun idea. Thanks for joining us on MFP's Speedy Fox and Friends challenge.

    On a side note, I had a student ask me what that image was last year when it was in a picture book. When I explained it was a lightbulb, he complained that if the artist just drew a twisty bulb (compact fluorescent), it would be so much clearer.
