SOG Anniversary Week: 1 Digi, 3 Ways

Hi all,

Welcome back Oddies!  It is Anniversary week for Some Odd Girl this week, and there are all kinds of fun challenges happening over on the SOG blog

This is our first, and maybe toughest, challenge of the week :) Don't let that scare you away! It only SOUNDS tough but its really all about what people who love digis love about digis: versatility! We want you to take 1 digi and use it in 3 different ways. You could make 3 projects, using the digi differently on each OR 1 digi in 3 different ways on the same project. What do we mean by "different ways"? Well, the beauty of digis is that you can flip then, make them HUGE, make them tiny, make a background, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination! I know you all have great imaginations so use it!  Check out the SOG blog to see the other creations!

For today's challenge, I chose to use the fun and lovely Unicorn image! 

For my first card, I decided to print the Unicorn image onto Kraft CS twice.  I thought it would be neat to print and colour the digi onto CS that isn't white!

I cut the first one out with Curved Rectangle Nesties and added some Basic Grey sponging inside it.  On the second unicorn, I added some white gel pen and coloured the rest with Copics.  I covered the wings in glitter, cut it out, and mounted it on with Dimensionals.
The white layer is embossed with the Finial Press folder, and the base is also Kraft CS.

My second project is a scrapbook page of my CUTE twin nieces!  I love scrapping them.  The cardstock and DSP are all from SU's Confetti Simply Scrappin' Kit - I love those colours.

My sentiment is done with some Making Memories alphabet rub-ons, and the dimensional elements ae from Jolee's (at Michael's).

I printed the Unicorn onto PTI White CS, coloured her with Copics, cut her out, and mounted her on with foam circles.  I covered her wings in glitter, and added some black Sakura pen to her eyes., and I also gave her some extra eyelashes :-)

For my 3rd project, I made another card.  I used the image to make a background.

The sentiment is from SU, and I made a flower with my 5-Petal Flower Punch and some white and Cameo Coral CS.  The pearls are misc from Michael's as well.  The sentiment panel was sponged with Cameo Coral ink.

The base is Sahara Sand CS.  I printed the Unicorn a bunch of times onto PTI White CS, coloured in the eyes and the hearts, and sponged around the edges with Cameo Coral ink.  I punched the Basic Black mat with the Ticket Corner punch.

Here is a shot of all the projects together:

See its not hard! Just make sure we can see the "different ways" and you'll be in! Just like all our challenges this week your entry is due to be linked up by the end of day January 23 EST. and for all our challenges this week you MUST use a Some Odd Girl digi. Need a new digi for the challenge? Check out what sale might be going on in the shop!
What are you playing for? I know Kristy's got some goodies up her sleeve! First, since its the toughest challenge of the week, she's got not only 3 digis of your choice from Some Odd Girl, but a $10 gift certificate to! C'mon, you know you were going to shop there anyway, best price on Copics hands down! So you can put it towards your next order :)

Don't forget to participate in our other anniversary week challenges - I had so much fun with this one!  Go to the SOG blog and check things out this week!  There is a different post every day.
