Hello everyone... I just finished a card for the CDAC Progressive Challenge #16. If you are not a member of CDAC, come on over and join! I chose this beautiful image from Nana Vic and I colored it using Adobe Photoshop. I love using Photoshop because you can use layers to achieve a great look. The background paper is from Ephemeras Garden. I added some flowers, feathers, ribbon and pearls. I also used two distressing techniques. I hope you like it...
Here is my Inspiration card for this weeks challenge at Dutch Dare Card Challenge. I used one of my newest images called "Daisies". I colored the image using Copics and I used one of my Nestabilities dies for the frame. I followed the sketch that was provided and added some silk flowers, ribbon, a sentiment and brads. I hope you like it!
Hello again... It is time for my team to present their Inspirations for The Dutch Dare Card Challenge! I decided to make a Tri-Fold card for a little girl. I used a few of my own images that you could find at my Etsy store. I colored the images with Adobe Fireworks. For the base of the card I used my "Pattieboop's Toy Book Case" and added two sides to it. My next image is called "Little Girl Dress". After I colored the dress I added pink net fabric, ribbon, a flower and a pearl. I used "Pattieboop's Mirror" and put foil behind it to look like a real mirror. The "Baby Blocks" and "Duckie" are found at my store also. I drew the ballet slippers and the drawers in the closet. I added a sentiment inside and outside and then I used this pink ruffled stretch ribbon, a flower and a brad. I hope you like it. It reminds me of when I was little and I made furniture for my Barbie dolls out of cardboard.

Gerber daisies make a really great subject for digital photography. I planted these in the Spring of 2009.

I created some magic on this photo that I took of a butterfly. I used Adobe Photoshop CS4 and transformed my color photo in to a black and white photo. I also changed the color of the butterfly by using Layers...
