Hello everyone! Today I have my inspiration creation for Dutch Dare Card Challenge. The sponsor is Karen's Doodles and I used her image called "Relax". The theme is "Pearls & Swirls". I created my background paper using Adobe Photoshop and used swirl brushes. I also used Photoshop to color my image and then cut it out. I really love how you can use layers to achieve a great looking colored image. I drew the shelf and bottles and also colored those in Photoshop. I cut the pieces out and and added glossy accents to the tops of the bottle and jar. The swirl border was made with one of my Cuttlebug dies. I added some pearls, a sentiment and glitter to complete my inspiration.
