PanPastels - Use a digi

I rarely use a digi, much preferring real rubber, but with the challenge this week at PanPastel UK I had great fun both sourcing and then using a digital image. I found the background frame in my folders (sorry didn't keep the name of where it originally came from) and thought I would love to use this and perhaps I could layer a digital image over it. So next I found the 'Best Friends' image in my files and decided I would try and put the two together and colour with PPs. I made the digi image into a ping file, layered it on top of the frame, resized it and hey presto, just what I wanted.


After I printed it out I painted the image with the PPs (tutorial coming later).


Then cut out the frame and layered it onto some French dictionary paper adding some collage bits with the sentiment....


and also a ribbon.


 As I had used a scalloped edge card I just cut around the edge once the dictionary paper had been glued on.

I really love this sweet card.

I hope you will join us at PanPastel UK this week and be in with a chance to win a set of these versatile pastels from Your Creativity Store.

Have a great day.

Wow this is stunning Brenda, I love the style .. yes me too prefer rubber than digis, I don't have to be so careful when colouring as sometimes the printing would smudge xxx

I love this image too Brenda, you have designed it so very well.
There is a place for digi images in the card-making world, they are very versatile, even though I do not use many of them myself either, but I sometimes wish people would not so easily discount them. You look at this creation and it is just delightful and no-one would know that it was not a rubber stamp!!!!

Hi Brenda,

What a beautiful card! I haven't used digi images either. With my lack of craft space it would be the way for me to go though.

Can't wait for the PP tutorial - your coloring is beautiful!

I'm sitting in Starbucks (another air conditioned place), catching up on my favorite blogs.

Hugs,
Kay
