SPRING HAS SPRUNG - CRAFTY PAD #113

It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted. I've had some really bad stuff happening at home so have been up and down to the hospital for a fortnight, but hopefully things are settling down a bit now. At least, I finally managed to make a challenge card.

The theme over at THE CRAFTY PAD this week is 'Use a Digi'. No problem there, lol and our sponsor is the lovely JOANNA SHEEN again with a £10 voucher to spend in her online store.

The design team used 'Through the Window' images available from THE CRAFTY PAD STAMP DESIGNS.

I coloured my image digitally in Photoshop this time. I had not long ago designed some wood effect papers (not quite as dark as on this photo) available HERE so I used them for the shutters and a digital overlay for the curtains. The rest was brushwork. Papers are Cosmo Cricket 'De Lovely' and the embellies are from the Papermania 'Sunshine' kit. It's a bright one this time, isn't it? lol.




I bent the shutters forward so they looked more like they were open. The sentiment is also from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs, although I must admit, I changed the text for this one.

Oooh, Lorraine, I really LOVE this! LOVE the woodgrain shutters, and how the dark brown contrasts with the sunny yellow DP! I was thinking you'd paper-pieced the curtains (and was impressed,) now I know you did it digitally I'm DOUBLE IMPRESSED!!! Great card, and really glad things are settling down a little on the home-front! Hugs, Ali x
