I discovered a new fun site Crafters Digital ARt Center. The site has new digital stamps by many gifted artists. The site is just waiting for you to sign on as a member and join in for challenges and fun.
This is my first challenge with a wonderful Nicecrane Design by the very talented Ignacio The darling little image is called "Incredible Friends".
The challenge was to use this cute little image and to give it a vintage look.
This is a close=up of the background I used.
I sponged the designer paper with distress ink and used a plain white ribbon. I colored the ribbon (the area that would show) with a copic marker that matched the distress ink.
I am so excited. I lan to get Photoshop Elements today and I hope I improve the look of the edges of my cards for posting. I just love the way my Copic instructor, Suzanne Dean posts her cards. She makes a wonderful edge that blends and drawas the eye to the actual card without altering the original look. It just makes it look like it belongs on the screen! She emailed me the instructions on how she does this and I can hardly wait to get started!
