Seeing Gingham

Hello!
How is everyone today?  Hope you had a great weekend!   We had such nice weather where we are, a bit hot, but I got to spend some uninterrupted time with hubby and kids, so that was a nice change.

Today we are sponsoring the Digital Tuesday challenge, and the theme is GINGHAM.  Ooooh, I LOOOOVE gingham, it just makes any image cuter!

I made a little sumpt'n with the Plush Panda pre-colored image and digi papers.

The black splotch pattern paper is a bit of a tight repetitive pattern, so to make it look less that way, here is what I did.
  1. In Photoshop, set your initial canvas size to a little bigger than the size of paper you want cut for your project.
  2. Add the PNG digi paper of choice on a new layer.
  3. Rotate the placed digi paper.  I rotated the digi paper at about 20-25 degrees within my Photoshop canvas area.
  4. Save the canvas area (your full document) as a PNG (or JPG). My canvas size was 4.5 x 2.5 since I wanted a 2x4 piece.
  5. Place your new saved PNG (or JPG) into whatever document you use for printing color images or papers. I use Word.
  6. Now you have a custom size digi paper that is printed at an angle. This way you don't have to waste any digi paper by cutting a piece at an angle.


MATERIALS I USED:
  • IMAGE: Plush Panda
  • CS/PAPER: white, digi paper from image set, black, green
  • INK: printer
  • ACCENTS/TOOLS: spellbinders eyelet squares, black gingham ribbon,Twinery twine, basic grey button, CTMH bitty brads, sewing machine, foam dimensionals

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanks for visiting us today!  I hope you get a change to join the Digital Tuesday challenge this week!

Gettin' fruity

Hello!  We are sponsoring the Totally Papercrafts challenge this week ant the theme is to get fruity!
I got a chance to make something that fits the challenge and I wanted to share today.
I used the Fruit Hat image and made it fun bright colors.  This is actually a birthday card for someone.
I watercolored the image with Tombow markers and a waterbrush, waited for all the to dry and then sprayed with my matte finish acrylic sealer and then added the white dots on the pink ribbon on the back of the hat.
I just had to cut a teeny tiny tag around a 1/16" hole punched in white CS, so that i can hang it off the hat.  Just for fun!
Thanks for visiting today!!  Hope you can join in the fruity challenge with us at Totally Papercrafts!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
IMAGE: Fruit Hat
CS/PAPER: 90 lb. Canson watercolor paper, CDS bubble gum, PTI yellow CS, misc digi paper
INK: printer, white gel pen, pink inkpad, Tombow markers 925, 515, 847, 985, 942, 177, 606, 755
ACCENTS/TOOLS: waterbrush, sponge, spellbinders ovals and beaded oval dies, PTI ribbon, SU buttons, MS frond punch, twine, MS border punch, pearls, sewing machine, 1/16" hole punch, foam dimensionals
