Very good morning to you all, I was just going to say evening and realized its now 12.25am! lol
Just wanted to share these two cards I made using the new releases over at doodledragondesigns today.
Dustin designed some really fun images this week which includes sea creatures and backgrounds. For the 1st card I wanted to come out of my comfort zone and try using different colours and I thought I would go nautical and use the sweet little boat and the life buoy. I had the perfect paper which is from 'The English Paper Company' and when looking through my button collection I found the perfect one! I just love it when you have the right things at hand. The little star was actually a silver brad but I heat embossed it to turn it blue and was very impressed with the outcome. I did the sentiment on my PC using 'double rings' font from scrapnfonts. Ribbon is from my stash.
The second card was done totally in photoshop which is also a first for me. I have just purchased CS4 and a Wacom intuos drawing tablet which I am so excited about but also very daunted! The software seems fab but I have never even used photoshop before so I am a real beginner but really want to get into digital scrapbooking. I have never done a LO before and I have so many photos. Anyway I opened up the background image and coloured it digitally then opened up the sea creatures and resized them and digitally coloured these too. I was just curious to see how different it would look really and it was fun to do. I then used foam squares to pop and did my sentiment adding a brad and ribbon to complete. If you like the look of these little guys then pop over to doodledragondesigns and view the whole set and you can also check out the fab DT work here.
