Good evening everyone
Well I haven't exactly got back up to speed with my blog posts yet but I have got a bit better!
Tonight I would like to share a card I have just made in Craft Artist Professional and I am particularly pleased with myself because everything on this card was made from one of my own photographs.
Here is the photograph
I started out by turning this photograph into a line drawing and making the flower itself more prominent. Here it is
The next step was to digitally colour the line drawing
Once I had coloured the image I copied it and made embellishments by cropping the flower from the background, and cutting shapes out of it and then distorting and manipulating them. Next I used some of the embellishments to make a set of backing papers - here are the two I used on the card
And here is the finished card front
And the matching insert
I shared some of the background paper I made, and also the flower itself, with the members in Serif Craft Artist Users Group on Facebook and one of my members, Ann Whitfield, made a beautiful card using the flower. My friend Heather also used one of my backing papers to make a wedding anniversary card for me and hubby, and I was really pleased to think they liked what I had made enough to use them on cards. So a big thankyou to Ann and Heather.
I hope you like my card.
The second challenge over at Digitally Sweet Challenges is "Anything Goes with Flowers". Entries must be 100% digital and I think I can safely say that my card is certainly that so will be entering it into the challenge. Why not pop over and have a look, and even better if you decide to join in the fun.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
