Reach for the Stars

Image
Today's creation is my DT piece for Pattie's Creations Challenge #47, where the theme is Color Combo using Red, White, and Blue. I used the image 'Hot Air Balloon Ride' and as usual, I digitally colored it. I also printed a Stars image as my DP. I placed a red and white striped ribbon next, and placed the image on top. To finish it, I hand cut the stars with text and placed them on the balloon image. I don't want to go overboard with doodads and such, the sentiment says it all.

Today's creation is my DT piece for Pattie's Creations Challenge #46, where the theme is Monochromatic. If you click on the 'Western Boots' image to see a larger view, you'll be able to see the snakeskin texture in the darker coloring. I think it looks pretty cool! The image was digitally colored and printed on white photo paper and then cut with a scalloped circle die. I ink distressed the edges with 2 different shades. The DP is a digital creation since I didn't have any papers that went well with the boot colors. Two copper embellies on the sentiment and it's done!

Father's Day

Image
This is my DT creation for Pattie's Creations Challenge #45, whose theme is 'Father's Day or card for a Guy'. Pattie made this image especially for me to use for my husband Frank's card. She knows him all too well, since he loves to go to the casinos and gamble. I used a denim DP (he's always in jeans) that I distressed the edges a bit. At the corners I added some metallic embellies to simulate the studs on a pair of jeans. The image was already colored so I didn't have to do anything there. I printed the image out and then diecut with a scalloped circle. I masked the image and dabbed some ink using Dune from Color Box. Then I used some Charcoal ink from Color Box along the scalloped edges to give it a 'washed denim' look. I added some glossy accents to the hearts for effect. My sentiments finished up the card.
