MAWTT Challenge 78 - Anything Goes but not Christmas

Good morning Everyone

I hope that all is well with you and your families as we are fast approaching Christmas Day.

This week our lovely Hazel at has set the theme at MAWTT and we are looking for anything but Christmas projects.

We are being sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps this week and the winner will receive $10.00 To spend instore!!!!!   Pop over to the Store to see what they have got - there is such a range of images and papers.

I got to play with 'Babe' and Stitchy, if you read this my friend, I hope you don't mind how I have used her.

I have experimented with using digital images to create a piece of art and I did not set out to make a card. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements but have a very limited understanding of what it can do (so I must get myself on a course to learn how to use it properly). Firstly I coloured Babe, put wings on her as well as goggles and a top-hat (I know very Steampunk!!) and then added her and other elements to Panda Bear Designs Garden Fairies Paper. I added more shading and colour to the image with Promarkers and then I used layers, inks, stickles, stamps and embellishments to give it a more 3D look - eh voila.

Only 2 more sleeps now.

Take care, luv {brenda} xoxox

Hi Brends, it looks like you had a bit of fun with this one! I think Photo Shop always has something new to learn. I do hope you are all doing well, including your Mum, and here's wishing you a Happy Holiday!
