Ok...so here's my first challenge post as an official team member!
I have recently found Dustin Pike - what great images he has. When I got the sketch from Lauren, I decided I needed to use one of his images on my first project. Here's the sketch:
Tomorrow is Lauren's Birthday - so figured I'd make mine a birthday card in honor of her!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAUREN! Hope it's a great day!!
Soooooo, onto the card:
I flipped the sketch to make it work for me...isn't this little monkey too much?!? I had tons of fun coloring this image in with my copics, and added a little crystal effects to the cherry and the sprinkles on the cupcake. Also put a few touches of my stardust pen on the cupcake frosting as well. Now - Dustin provides a .png file with his images, meaning when you get it, there's one version that has no background outside of the image...which is cool, because if you take a look at my image, there is a drop shadow that I added using Photoshop Elements. I think it made the image 'pop' just a little more...how about you?
All of my layers are on dimensionals, and isn't that a fun sentiment? It's an oldie from Gina K, it was my very first unmounted stamp!
Thanks for stopping by today -- be sure to check out all of the other team members blogs as well!!!
Be sure to use keyword Mytimess32 when uploading - and link on Lauren's blog as well...can't wait to see what YOU do with the sketch!
